The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall are to visit the UAE as part of the three-nation tour of the Middle East in November.

Prince Charles and wife Camilla will visit the Emirates, as well as Oman and Bahrain, to “strengthen the United Kingdom’s warm bilateral relations with key partners in the region”.

Specific dates and an itinerary for the royal couple have yet to be announced.

The Prince of Wales, the eldest child and heir apparent of Queen Elizabeth II, is no stranger to the Emirates.

He has visited the UAE each spring for the past three years on official duties.

On his last visit in February 2015, Prince Charles was welcomed by Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.

The Prince has visited the UAE four times in the past decade.
