Prince Charles and Camilla to Visit Colombia and Mexico

LONDON – Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, and his wife, Camilla, will travel on Oct. 28 to Colombia and Mexico on a week-long official visit to boost bilateral ties, Clarence House said in a statement Friday.

The official visit, which will last until Nov. 5, is Prince Charles’ fifth to Mexico and his first to Colombia.

In Colombia, his first stop, the prince will voice the British government’s support for the ongoing peace process between Bogota and guerrillas of the Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC).

He and Camilla will also attend a Peace and Reconciliation ceremony in memory of victims of the conflict.

The couple is also expected to participate in meetings on climate change, trade, investment and cultural ties among other activities and will attend a dinner offered by President Juan Manuel Santos Calderon.

Prince Charles, 65, and Camilla will arrive in Mexico on Nov. 2, and will visit a local cemetery in Real del Monte coinciding with the festivity of the dead in that country.

They will also travel to Mexico City, Campeche and Monterrey.

The trip comes at the request of the British government, following invitations by Santos Calderon and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.

British authorities have stressed the importance of the tour, aimed at strengthening ties with two “dynamic” and “influential” Latin American countries, the statement by Clarence house said.
