A reception attended by roughly 300 individuals, including numerous government officials and members of civil society, will take place after the meet-and-greet on the red carpet.

Since becoming king on May 6, Charles’ journey to Romania will be his first overseas excursion.

“The King has begun his first overseas visit since his coronation, travelling to Romania for a private solo stay in the country’s Transylvanian region,” according to Buckingham Palace.

“It is not known how long Charles will spend in Romania,” it added.

Meetings will be held with Romanian governmental officials, members of the civil society, and diplomats, according to the Romanian presidency.

Charles is scheduled to visit rural Transylvania after Bucharest, a place he owns several homes in and has frequented in the past.

Charles is planned to stay in the picturesque area for several days, starting in the town of Valea Zalanului and ending in the hamlet of Viscri.
