It is worthy to mention that Prince Charles had his first overseas tour since the pandemic last month as he paid an official visit to Jordan and the UK with his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla.
The Royal couple held a meeting with President Abdel Fattah Sisi and the first lady, Intisar Sisi.
Also, the Prince of Wales held several meetings with Egyptian officials, such as Pope Tawadros II, and they discussed the role of religion in climate change as well as violence against women, and how to address these issues.
