Oman Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, arrived in Jordan on Tuesday as part of their first royal tour since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Charles and his wife were greeted on the tarmac by a Jordanian color guard. They were scheduled to meet Jordan’s King Abdullah II and Queen Rania at the royal palace in Amman, then visit religious and historical sites during their three-day trip to the kingdom before heading to Egypt on Thursday.
The British embassy said last month that the visit aims to promote “strong bilateral relations” on the centenary of ties between Amman and London.
The royal visit will focus in particular on combating climate change in the wake of the Glasgow Conference, and interfaith tolerance.
