Prince Charles is reportedly contemplating a trip to Iran


The UK’s Sunday Times reported Sunday that Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, is considering the possibility of an official state visit to Iran.

The British royal family have not made an official visit to the Islamic Republic in 40 years, before the revolution which overthrew the Shah in 1979.

Clarence House, which is attached to St James’s Palace and acts as Prince Charles’s private office, was said to be liaising with the Foreign Office in order to explore the possibility further.

No member of the British monarchy has visited Israel on an official visit since the state’s founding. Last year Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu invited Prince Charles to make an official visit to the Jewish state while the two spoke at the Paris conference on climate change.
