Camilla in Colmbia

Her husband has been here before but for Camilla this is a new experience.  The Duchess of Cornwall has just begun an official visit to Colombia.  The Prince of Wales and his wife arrived in Bogota at the start of a four day visit which will form part of a longer tour of Colombia and Mexico.  The royal couple are visiting the South American countries to strengthen ties between them and the United Kingdom.

The prince and the duchess were welcomed at the airport by the British ambassador to Colombia, Lindsay Croisdale-Appleby, and his wife, Barbara.  There will be an official reception for the royals, hosted by Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, today.

During their stay in Colombia, Prince Charles and Camilla will visit Cartagena and the Macarena National Park.  But before that there are all the hallmarks of an official visit by royalty with a gala banquet for the couple on the agenda.  Earlier this year, Prince Harry visited Brazil and Chile and this tour by his father ensures that British royalty has made its mark in South America in 2014.
