King Charles III Will be Present at the French D-Day Anniversary: Palace

LONDON: At a celebration honouring the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings, King Charles III will embark on his first international trip following his cancer diagnosis, Buckingham Palace announced on Friday.
According to a statement, the 75-year-old British head of state will attend a memorial service on June 6 at the British Normandy Memorial in northern France. He has only recently started making public appearances again.

Located in Ver-sur-Mer, the memorial is close to Gold Beach, which is the codename for one of the five beachheads in northern France where Allied forces landed on June 6, 1944.
At the Juno Beach Centre at Courseulles-sur-Mer, on the Channel coast, Charles will be joined by his wife Queen Camilla, 76, and older son Prince William, 41, who are also expected to be joining Canadian veterans.

Then, William will attend the worldwide memorial service at Omaha Beach, the site of the US troops’ landing, along with more than 25 other heads of state, in honour of his father.
After attending the UK’s national commemorative event in Portsmouth, southern England, on June 5, Charles and Camilla will travel to France, where they completed a three-day state visit last year.
