The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Malaysia on Friday, but for the three days before that they were visiting Singapore and Brunei. Unfortunately I don’t have time to cover this tour day in and day out – not to mention it’s been a little busy with UK news – but I do want to periodically check in with them on their travels as they move through southeast Asia and India. So, today we’re going to cover the first leg’s highlights and later this week we’ll wrap up Malaysia.
A week out from the Invictus Games, the Royal Family has racked up a fair bit of international news thanks to the international travel of the Queen’s children. Let’s start with the Prince of Wales’s visit to Malta for the 75th anniversary of the George Cross, with which the island was awarded in 1942 by George VI for Malta’s heroism and service during the Siege of Malta from 1940-1942.
