Prince Charles Duchess Camilla

British Royals, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall Camilla, are making a historic visit to Greece's capital city of Athens in May, following an official invitation by the President of the Republic, Prokopis Pavlopoulos. This visit is considered as historic as members of the British royal family have not officially visited Athens since the 1950’s.

According to reports, the Buckingham Palace accepted the invitation, despite the preparations for the wedding of Prince Harry with Meghan Markle on May 19th.

Although the official program for the Royal couple has not yet been announced, it will include a state banquet, a visit to the Acropolis Museum as well as a guided tour to the Parthenon.

Prince Charles loves to spend summer vacations in Greece, however it is the first time he will pay an official visit to the Greek capital.

The visit is scheduled for May 9th and 10th, 2018.

Last summer the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall spent a couple of days on the island of Corfu, the birthplace of his father Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip.  The couple later moved to Northern Greece, where Prince Charles made his way to holy Mount Athos.
