Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall have announced they will soon be jetting off on their first royal tour in almost two years.
The royal duo will be travelling to Jordan and Egypt for four days in mid-November, where they will represent the Queen at a number of events and engagements.
Charles and Camilla shared the news of their upcoming visit via a statement from Clarence House, which outlined several details of the tour.

"At the request of the British Government, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will visit The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and The Arab Republic of Egypt from 16th - 19th November," read the announcement.
"The tour will focus on the climate crisis and will explore how leaders can implement commitments following COP26."
The trip will also coincide with Jordan's centenary and "100 years of the UK-Jordan bilateral relationship", a major milestone for the nation.
Meanwhile, Charles and Camilla's visit to Egypt will "highlight the country's close relationship with the UK", as well as the nation's "growing commitment to protecting the environment".
Key events during the trip will include a reception overlooking the Pyramids at Giza, a visit to the ancient city of Alexandria and a number of holy sites.
Camilla will also see Queen Rania of Jordan's work to support vulnerable children and their mothers, and keep girls in education.
This will be the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall's first international royal tour since early 2020, when the coronavirus pandemic sent the UK into a strict lockdown and put an end to overseas travel.
Charles and Camilla are set to attend the United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, in Glasgow, Scotland shortly before the tour.
The summit, which kicks off on October 31, will bring a number of royals and world leaders together to address key climate change issues over almost two weeks.
With the event set to wrap up on November 12, the royal couple will have a few days' break between their duties in Glasgow and their trip to Jordan and Egypt.
But that doesn't necessarily mean they will be relaxing or taking time off from their royal responsibilities ahead of the tour.
News of the Queen's recent health scare and overnight hospital stay has prompted a change in royal protocol around events she attends.

Her Majesty will now be accompanied by one of her children or grandchildren at every major outing, to prevent disappointment if she has to pull out for health reasons.
That means Charles, as the future king, is expected to increase his royal duties in the coming weeks to better support his 95-year-old mother.
Other key royals including Princess Anne and Prince William are also expected to attend more events with the Queen as she approaches 70 years on the throne.
