World, As Seen from the most beautiful islands: Ireland and Cyprus

Prince Charles saddened by the Ireland trip cancellation


Prince Charles finds it very sad that he and Camilla are not travelling to Ireland and Northern Ireland this year due to the corona crisis. The British Embassy in Dublin looks back on Tuesday on a special visit by the Prince to Ireland, exactly five years ago. Charles also made himself heard.

“My wife and I have very special memories of our visit to Sligro five years ago,” Charles wrote in a message to the embassy. In 2015, the prince paid a very emotionally charged visit to Ireland. With Camilla, he went to the coastal town of Mullaghmore, where his great-uncle Earl Mountbatten was murdered by the IRA in August 1979.

The Embassy in Dublin looked back on the visit on Tuesday, disregarding the tragic family history. Since 2015, Charles and Camilla returned to a different part of Ireland every year.

“It has meant so much to us that we have been able to play our small part in the crucial process of reconciliation on the island,” wrote Charles.

He called his annual visits a confirmation of the “essential link between the people of Ireland and that of the United Kingdom”.
