Prince Charles begins Asia tour in Singapore
Contents From Asia One
Britain’s Prince Charles and his wife Camilla arrived in Singapore Monday to kick off an Asian tour aimed at cementing relations ahead of a meeting of Commonwealth states next year.
The heir to the British throne and Camilla are undertaking an 11-day trip that will also include stops in Malaysia and India.
British media had said the Foreign Office was originally considering including Myanmar on the tour, despite a military crackdown against the Muslim Rohingya minority, but in the end it was omitted from the couple’s itinerary.
