London, Britain (CNN) – Buckingham Palace announced, in a statement, on Friday, that the first state visit of King Charles III and his wife, Queen Consort Camilla, will be to France and Germany at the end of March.
The visit will provide “an opportunity to look ahead and show the many ways the UK is working in partnership with France and Germany, whether to tackle climate change, tackling conflict in Ukraine, seizing trade and investment opportunities, and sharing the best of our arts and cultures.”
The royal couple will spend four days in France, visiting Paris and Bordeaux, with a banquet scheduled in Versailles.
According to the statement, “King Charles will also address both chambers of the French Parliament in joint session.”
From France, the couple will travel to Germany on March 29 for three days, visiting Berlin, Brandenburg and Hamburg. The statement said that Charles will address the German parliament, but is not scheduled to hold a meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
Charles and Camilla last visited France in 2019, and Germany in 2020, when he was Prince of Wales.
