Ahram Online , Wednesday 10 Nov 2021

The British Crown Prince Charles and his wife Camilla Parker — the Duchess of Cornwall — will be visiting Egypt between 18 and 19 November for the first time since 2006, Gareth Bayley, the British ambassador to Egypt tweeted on Tuesday.

The royal couple will be received by Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and his wife Entissar El-Sisi, Bayley added.

The visit will tackle British-Egyptian cooperation in the field of climate change and religious tolerance.

The visit — the first overseas tour by a senior member of the royal family during the pandemic — will also include a visit to Jordan prior to arriving to Egypt.

During their visit to Egypt, the royals will also hold discussions with Al-Azhar’s Grand Imam Ahmed El-Tayyeb on religious harmony and the role of faith in protecting the environment, according to a statement released by Prince Charles’ office in late October.

“This will serve to further strengthen religious ties between the UK and Egypt,” the statement added.
