Prince Charles invited to Greece

Prince Charles invited to Greece for the country’s 200th birthday.

Prince Charles has been invited to Greece to join the country’s bicentennial celebrations in March.

The Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, extended the invitation in a phone call with the Prince of Wales – who is currently working from his Highgrove estate in Gloucestershire.

Charles wants to attend the commemorations of the birth of the modern day Greece, but he is unable to commit because of the severe travel restrictions in place in the UK.

A royal source said that the heir to the throne is “keen” to attend if he can. Approval for such a visit for the most senior travelling member of the British royal family might have been a simple formality before the coronavirus pandemic.

Last year, Prince Charles wrote that Greece was “very much part of my identity” and he spoke of how his own connections to the country have “a particular resonance for me”.

Under current UK COVID-19 restrictions, you must stay at home. You must not travel, including abroad, unless you have a legally permitted reason to do so. It is illegal to travel abroad for holidays and other leisure purposes.

People travelling from red list countries to Wales and Northern Ireland will be required to book and pay for quarantine in England, as neither destination currently has any direct international flights.

Those who fail to quarantine in a government-sanctioned hotel for 10 days face fines of up to £10,000 and up to 10 years in prison. Travellers also face £1,750 cost for England quarantine hotels.
