Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall in Rome

Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall to meet Mattarella and Gentiloni.

Britain’s Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will meet Italian president Sergio Mattarella at the Quirinale on 5 April followed by a visit to Palazzo Chigi to meet Italian premier Paolo Gentiloni.

Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall will then visit Rome's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), before departing for Austria, on the final leg of their European tour which began in Romania on 29 March.

On 4 April the Prince and Duchess paid a visit to the Vatican where Prince Charles presented Pope Francis with a hamper of produce from his Highgrove farm. The occasion marked the Prince's third official visit to the Holy See, and the second for the Duchess.

The royals also visited the Venerable English College on Via di Monserrato and the British School at Rome in Valle Giulia on 4 April. The royal couple spent the previous four days based in Florence, with Prince Charles paying a visit to Amatrice, the north Lazio town devastated by a 6.2-magnitude earthquake last August.

The official visit to Italy was the 20th undertaken by the Prince of Wales, the second by the Duchess of Cornwall.

The royal tour, which concludes in Vienna on 6 April, is intended to highlight the UK’s relationship with European partners in areas such as social cohesion, military ties and combatting human trafficking.
