Charles and Camilla off to Greece during pandemic

Later this month, Prince Charles and Camilla will travel to Greece from March 24-25. This trip is being made at the request of the British government, following an invitation from the Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

During the visit, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will take part in Bicentenary Independence Day celebrations in Athens. They will also attend a reception at the newly re-opened National Gallery of Greece and a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Syntagma Square. A traditional military parade will take place on the final day of their visit.

This isn't Charles and Camilla's first trip to Greece. The royal couple last visited the country in May of 2018. Prince Charles also previously made an official visit to the country in 1998.

It also isn't their first overseas trip since the coronavirus pandemic began. In October of last year, Prince Charles traveled to Kuwait City to pay his condolences following the death of the late Amir, Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah. And in November 2020, both Prince Charles and Camilla traveled to Germany for the country's National Day of Mourning, which commemorates victims of war and fascism.

As the pandemic continues, and the UK is still under lockdown, the royals will take measures to comply with COVID-19 regulations and guidance during their trip. Fortunately, both Charles and Camilla have been vaccinated. They received their first shots earlier this year.

Are they going to quarantine for 10 days upon returning? This is hardly essential travel and they are going to come into contact with a lot of people during the trip. Let's hope they wear masks at all times and don't bring a new strain of COVID back with them.

They could have take part in the Bicentenary Independence Day celebrations by video call and done the rest of it when international travel reopens.

Don't say that, imagine if Charles succumbed to coivd. We'd be in lockdown for another year.

Maybe he's looking for a final resting place for his father in his native home.

It sends a positive message to the rest of the country. We are better than you and the rules don't apply to us.

Good point.

If you've just been possibly accused of being racist on TV by a family member, you could lie low for a bit, or get in your private jet for some international travel during a global pandemic. Either or.

As if he isn’t pumped to the gills with every vaccine under the sun.

Might put Spiros and the lads in Athens at risk, but doubt Chaz gives a single fuck.

Stay home. Save lives.

What a very British joke.

Quote from: Sir Prince Charles
Tsk - the government guidance is to work from home where possible. How is one supposed to attend an official state dinner followed by a parade of the Greek military services in Athens via zoom? It's absolutely appalling. Euuughh.

In fairness though, it must be awful to be trapped at home with just a few castles and tens of thousands of acres. What is one to do?

In fairness though, it must be awful to be trapped at home with just a few castles and tens of thousands of acres, looking at your selfish mother who insists on clinging to life, doing you out of your royal birthright
