Britain's Prince Charles will visit Jordan and Egypt next month, his office said on Monday.

This is the first overseas tour by a senior member of the royal family since the Covid pandemic began. Charles, Prince of Wales, is the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and the British heir-to-the-throne.

He will be accompanied by his wife Camilla, and their four day trip will begin on November 16.

The visit to Jordan will include a welcome from Jordan's King Abdullah and Queen Rania at Al Husseiniya Palace. 

This trip marks 100 years of the UK-Jordan bilateral relationship. Charles last visited Jordan in February of 2015, and Camilla in 2013. 

"The prince will focus on environmental issues, inter-faith dialogue, heritage preservation and the creation of jobs and opportunities for young people," Clarence House, the prince's office, said. "The duchess will continue her commitment to supporting women, as well as girls’ education."

The trip to Egypt will highlight the country's close relationship with the UK, and focus on the countries' commitment to protecting the environment. 

The royals will meet President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and the Grand Imam of Egypt's al-Azhar. 

"Their Royal Highnesses will together attend a UK-Egypt reception to celebrate the bond between the two countries, to be held overlooking the Pyramids at the magnificent Giza Plateau," the press release from the Clarence House continued. 

The British royals last visited Egypt in 2006. 

Visits from senior members of the family were on a hiatus previously due to the health risks posed by the global pandemic.

Earlier this year, Charles contracted Covid, but recovered upon completing quarantine, according to BBC.
