- The Prince of Wales will head to Japan in the Autumn for the lavish engagement
- He previously visited the country with Princess Diana back in 1990 and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall in 2008.
- This follows the royal news that the Duchess of Cornwall recently enjoyed a secret holiday to Corfu.
The visit, which the Prince of Wales is undertaking on behalf of the Queen, is by request of the British Government. And it’ll be a flying visit for the future King – as he’ll be there for just two days.
Charles will be in Toyko from the 22nd to the 23rd of October where he will attend the ceremony as well as rich banquets alongside thousands of guests, including many other foreign royals and dignitaries.
According to Clarance House, Charles will also take part in a day of engagements that will celebrate British and Japanese connections.

He attended the ceremony of enthronement of Emperor Naruhito’s father, Emperor Akihito, on 12 November 1990 with Princess Diana.
News of the upcoming visit was announced on the Clarence House Instagram page, alongside photographs of Charles and Camilla’s previous Japanese tour.
