Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, will once again be in the region this year as he plans to visit Bosnia and Herzegovina in March. His Royal Highness will travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina on March the 17th and 18th according to an announcement from the British Embassy in Sarajevo.
Prince Charles, who visited Croatia in 2016, will be in Bosnia and Herzegovina to mark the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide.
The Embassy reported that “His Royal Highness will undertake engagements in Sarajevo and Srebrenica. A key element will be a visit to the memorial at Srebrenica to mark the 25th anniversary of the genocide. His Royal Highness will pay his respects to the victims, accompanied by a number of survivors, including mothers who are still looking for their missing family members.”
The last time Prince Charles was in Bosnia and Herzegovina was in 2007. On that last visit he visited British troops who were serving in Bosnia, and he was joined by his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall on that visit.
And on this visit the Prince will also get involved with the armed forces with the Embassy stating that “His Royal Highness will meet UK military personnel involved in securing a safe and secure environment in Bosnia, and bolstering the Bosnia-UK defence relationship.”
