Charles & Camilla on the Côte d’Azur

Between 7th and 9th May, Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, will be on an official visit to the French Riviera, beginning in Nice and the Promenade des Anglais in order to commemorate those affected by the July 2016 terror attack before attending a reception to celebrate the ‘longstanding links between Nice and the UK, including the fact that Her Majesty Queen Victoria regularly visited the city throughout her lifetime’.

Their Royal Highnesses will then travel to Lyon where they will jointly attend a VE Commemoration to mark 73 years since the end of the Second World War in Europe. Prince Charles is expected at the INTERPOL bureau to ‘highlight the UK and France's role in international police co-operation’.

During their official visit, Prince Charles is expected to emphasise the UK and France's ‘commitment to counter terrorism and security, education and charitable enterprise. A communiqué from Clarence House also notes that the future sovereign will respect France rich history in the areas of food and viticulture.

The couple will be heading to Greece for two days following their visit to the south of France in a tour ‘undertaken at the request of the British government [to] highlight the UK's strong bilateral ties with both countries’.
