Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla

Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla will travel to Oman, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates in November.

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall will head to the three nations to help "strengthen" the UK's "bilateral relations" in the area.

Clarence House said in a statement: "On behalf of the British Government, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will undertake official visits to the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Sultanate of Oman and the United Arab Emirates in November 2016.

"The tour will help to strengthen the United Kingdom's warm bilateral relations with key partners in the region."

But it's not the first time Charles and Camilla have visited the area.

Just last year, Charles spent time in the UAE and did so beforehand in 2014 along with Bahrain.

He was accompanied by Camilla for a visit to Oman in 2013, and the pair both went to Bahrain and the UAE in February 2007.

Before then, Charles, 67, carried out several solo trips to the region, including visiting Oman and UAE in November 2003 and 2004 respectively.

He first visited Oman in December 1980 and later returned in 1986 when he also went to Bahrain, and three years later the UAE.
