Muscat: The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will undertake over 50 engagements in seven days during their official visits to the Sultanate of Oman, the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Bahrain from 5th-11th November 2016, the Royals website says.
The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will begin the tour in Oman on 5th November.
As part of their visit to Muscat, Their Royal Highnesses will visit the new National Museum where they will receive a ceremonial welcome and meet communities from the different regions of Oman showing traditional clothing and crafts.
Key events in The Prince of Wales's programme will include a visit to a wildlife reserve where His Royal Highness will hear more about the conservation programme in the wadi (valley) and on the coastal plain, focussing on endangered species.
The Prince will also attend an event for young leaders in Oman including John Smith Fellows, Outward Bound graduates, young people from The Prince's Trust International, members of the Anglo-Omani Society Next Generation Group, and the British Council Next Generation initiative.
