Clarence House has announced that the Prince of Wales will visit Vanuatu on Saturday 7th April as part of his Commonwealth Games tour.

Prince Charles is visiting Australia for the Commonwealth Games alongside his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall.

However, he will travel alone to Vanuatu after the Duchess leaves for a one-day visit, Royal Central reports.

Afterwards, he will return to Australia to visit Cairns in Queensland and Gove & Darwin in the Northern Territory.

In Vanuatu, The Queen’s son will learn more about Cyclone Pam rehabilitation projects.

His Royal Highness will also highlight the challenges faced by the Island States vulnerable to the growing threat of climate change.

In addition to the theme of the Commonwealth, the tour will include engagements which focus on the themes of community, sustainability and disaster recovery and resilience; as well as visits which highlight The Prince’s connections to the Australian Armed Forces.

The Duchess of Cornwall will depart Australia before her husband meaning she will miss the visit to Vanuatu and Northern Australia.
