Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles during the last day of Egypt tour 


The Prince of Wales has attended a Sustainable Markets Initiative event, while the Duchess of Cornwall visited a veterinary hospital in Cairo on the last day of their tour of the Middle East.

Prince Charles, 73, looked sharp in a grey suit with a blue striped tie and purple shirt as he arrived at the GrEEK Campus workspace and urged Egyptians to take the lead in the fight against Climate Change.

Camilla, 74, wearing an elegant mint green Anna Valentine dress, meanwhile, toured The Brooke Veterinary Hospital in Cairo to see their newly refurbished facility and stroked the noses of scores of horses and donkeys being restored to health by the charity. 

Yesterday the royal couple, dressed in all their finery, finished their first day in Egypt with a dazzling reception overlooking the Pyramids of Giza in Cairo.

The Brooke has been running on the same site since British woman Dorothy Brooke founded the Old War Horse Memorial Hospital in 1934.

Camilla visited the site in 2006, on one of her first tours as a member of the Royal Family, where she fed a horse a carrot and her husband fondly said: ‘Your first carrot, darling.’

Escorted by Sherif Foda, chairman of Brooke Egypt, the Duchess first cut a ribbon to officially open the refurbished hospital which contained row upon row of stables containing animals being treated by the charity’s vets.

‘I can’t believe how clean they are, so impressive,’ she said. ‘And they really are spotless. ‘

Head of animal welfare Dr Emad Nouam , who has worked there for 32 years, gave the duchess Bardeen, a type of clover, to feed them.

She stroked one and asked what had happened to it and was told that it had been hit by a car. ‘You poor thing, well you are in good hands,’ she said.

She laughed as one reporter covering the visit found their hair being nibbled by one of the horses and said: ‘You’ve found a friend!’

In addition, they run education programmes for adults and children to raise awareness of animal welfare, with over 4,000 people trained so far in 2021, as well as a successful programme to empower women in rural communities to spread positive messages around animal welfare.

He was also scheduled to watch the launch of a F35 jet from the flight deck before meeting some of the ship’s company including US Navy and Marines. Jets from the vessel previously participated in strikes against the remnants of the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

The 65,000-tonne Royal Navy flagship is returning to the UK from its maiden mission, which included exercises with the Indian military. It was part of the carrier strike group’s deployment to the Indo-Pacific amid heightened tensions with China in the region.

The jets are operated by the renowned 617 Squadron, also known as the ‘Dambusters’ squadron.
