Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla will travel to Ireland next month for a historic trip—as long as they make a full recovery from Covid, of course. 


Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla will make an exciting trip to Ireland next month, marking their first time on the island's republic in over two years. 

It's been reported that the royal couple will visit Tipperary at the end of March, to tour its various attractions and meet with the local community. 

The overseas engagement will likely give Charles and Camilla something to look forward to as they wait for their self-isolation period to finish. 

Clarence House revealed last week that Prince Charles has Covid for a second time, after first catching the virus in March 2020. Duchess Camilla, who has recently been announced as the future Queen-Consort, tested just days later. The couple has since canceled all planned engagements and is quarantining until they can be confirmed Covid-free.

While Charles and Camilla's Ireland trip has yet to be officially announced, major preparations are already underway in the Munster county for their arrival. The couple is expected to stop by the famous Rock of Cashel, a historic site that once housed Ireland's High Kings, as well the popular filming location, Cahir Castle.

It's understood that the buzz over the springtime engagement is heating up amongst Tipperary locals, many of whom welcome the boost to tourism that a royal visit can bring. 

"There has been speculation among locals in the area for a number of weeks now. It is exciting," said Local Independent Councillor Máirín McGrath. 

“Cahir is a growing tourist town and the level of publicity this would bring for the town would only enhance that further—it is great he [the Prince of Wales] has picked South Tipperary." 

It's unknown how long Charles and Camilla plan on staying, but if their previous visits to Ireland are anything to go by, it could be no more than 48 hours. The couple has enjoyed multiple two-day trips to Ireland over the years, with their most recent one dating back to 2019. 

The highly-anticipated engagement will also see Tipperary host its first royal guests since the Queen flew there by helicopter in 2011. Her Majesty was brought to the Rock of Cashel during her four-day-long tour of Ireland, before being whisked north for an indoor party in Dublin. The historic trip, which marked the monarch's first state visit to the Republic of Ireland, was widely considered a great success by both the UK and Irish governments.
