From Town & Country

Later this month, Prince Charles and Camilla will travel to Greece from March 24-25. This trip is being made at the request of the British government, following an invitation from the Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

During the visit, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will take part in Bicentenary Independence Day celebrations in Athens. They will also attend a reception at the newly re-opened National Gallery of Greece and a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Syntagma Square. A traditional military parade will take place on the final day of their visit.

This isn't Charles and Camilla's first trip to Greece. The royal couple last visited the country in May of 2018. Prince Charles also previously made an official visit to the country in 1998.

It also isn't their first overseas trip since the coronavirus pandemic began. In October of last year, Prince Charles traveled to Kuwait City to pay his condolences following the death of the late Amir, Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah. And in November 2020, both Prince Charles and Camilla traveled to Germany for the country's National Day of Mourning, which commemorates victims of war and fascism.

As the pandemic continues, and the UK is still under lockdown, the royals will take measures to comply with COVID-19 regulations and guidance during their trip. Fortunately, both Charles and Camilla have been vaccinated. They received their first shots earlier this year.
