Charles and Camilla To Tour Royal Kingdoms of Arabia

Charles and Camilla are going back on the road, undertaking an official tour to Jordan, Qatar and Oman from 11th March to 19th March 2013.

Attentive Royalists will note that these are all countries with royal families themselves.

The palce says the tour is aimed at "strengthening the United Kingdom’s bilateral relations with key partners in the region, relations which are underpinned by the close personal friendships that exist between Their Royal Highnesses and the Royal Families in each country."

The tour starts in Jordan and will feature meetings with The King and Queen of that country, an inter-faith gathering to discuss the “Amman Message”, a major business conference and events to highlight UK-Jordanian collaboration in the creative industries and in education.

In Qatar, Charles and Camilla will attend a major event to celebrate the “UK-Qatar Year of Culture 2013”.

The final leg of the trip is to Oman, where Their Royal Highnesses will be the guests of the Sultan.

Intriguingly, the palace notes that Camilla "will undertake solo engagements focusing on the growing opportunities for women in society" in eachg of the three countries.
