The 67-year-old royal is reportedly planning to make a historical trip to the Middle Eastern country to "further encourage the relationship" between the two countries.

A source told The Times newspaper: "The prince is very keen to visit Iran. He hopes he would be able to use his role as a diplomat to further encourage the relationship and dialogue between the two countries."

However, a spokesperson for Clarence House insists nothing has been confirmed yet.

Meanwhile, the Prince - who is heir to the throne - recently returned from a trip to the Western Balkans, which he made with his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall.

At an event in Serbia, he urged for "peace and stability" in the region, telling those gathered at the Parliament Building: "I want to salute all those in this region who have had the courage to cross the divide between the different communities, the different faiths and within faiths. Such heroic examples are a badly needed inspiration to others in this region and to the rest of the world at this time.

"I can only assure you that Britain is with you as you build your common future. Peace and stability in this region will mean that all of us, whether in the Balkans, in the United Kingdom, or elsewhere, can enjoy a safer and more prosperous future. Together, we can build this future."
