King Charles and Camilla planning Royal Family's biggest ever series of international tours in two-year travel blitz | The Sun

KING Charles and Camilla are planning the Royal Family’s biggest-ever series of international tours, a royal source has said.

Charles and his wife will head to Australia, New Zealand as well as a number of Commonwealth countries in the Caribbean during the two-year travel blitz.


And Prince William and Princess Kate will be stepping up in a “major support role” – also jetting off on several visits.

A royal source told The Mirror: “The King and his family are keen to hit the ground running in these crucial first few months and years of his reign.

“He certainly wants to carry on the long-held mantra from his late mother of being seen to be believed, and is very keen to get out and meet as many people as possible.”

It’s thought the firm may even head on as many jaunts as the Queen undertook in the 1970s.

Her Majesty managed to pack in 52 Commonwealth visits and 21 trips to other countries to mark her 25th jubilee.

The King is already in talks with chief advisers to visit Canada and Australia “as soon as possible”.

This week a royal tour was announced for Australia in October 2021 – and if Charles is on the roster it would be the first time a reigning King has ever stepped foot on Australian soil.

Meanwhile, a postponed trip to India, Pakistan and Bangladesh for Charles and Camilla is also being rescheduled.

So far Charles has so far visited 45 of 56 Commonwealth countries.

It comes as Buckingham Palace is hoping to quietly drop 'Consort' from Queen Camilla’s title before King Charles’ coronation, sources claim.

The title of Queen Consort is given to the wife of a ruling king and was assigned to Camilla when the Queen passed away.

But ahead of King Charles' coronation, aides are planning to cease using 'Consort' in his wife's title, and instead refer to her as Queen Camilla, The Telegraph reports.

In modern history, former consorts have been referred to as the title of 'Queen' and their Christian name, including the Queen Mother who was called Queen Elizabeth.

Camilla took on the traditional title of Queen Consort as a mark of respect due to some opinions around her marriage into the Royal Family.

However the King and Queen Consort are "very relaxed" for her to be called Queen Camilla by the public and the press, it is understood.

Ahead of the coronation, the Palace are predicted to gauge the appropriateness of 'Queen Camilla' before adopting it formally.

In the meantime, Camilla is expected to still be referred to as the Queen Consort in formal communications, but it is understood the King is hoping his wife to be afforded the same respect as his grandmother was.

The title was decided following an address to the nation earlier this year when Elizabeth II said it was her “sincere wish” that Camilla be known as Queen Consort when she dies.
