King Charles III and Queen Camilla will embark on their first royal tour since Charles became king.

The five-day tour will take place in France and Germany from March 26 to March 31.

This tour marks Charles's first landmark tour as head of state and king.

The visit celebrates the U.K.'s relationship with France and Germany, highlighting shared histories, culture, and values.

The tour includes 25-30 different engagements across both countries.

Highlights in France include a state banquet at Chateau de Versailles and a ceremony of Remembrance at the Arc de Triomphe.

In Germany, standout moments include a ceremonial welcome at the Brandenburg Gate and a visit to the St. Nikolai Memorial.

The tour will also focus on sustainability and community, and will reflect on the shared past of the countries.

After Brexit and the Ukraine war, the trip emphasises historical linkages with European neighbours.
