The prince has started a 3-day visit during which he will meet with president Klaus Iohannis, PM Sorin Grindeanu and representatives of the non-profit sector.
According to Agerpres newswire, Prince Charles will talk with the Romanian president about the strategic relation between the two countries and the outlook of British-Romanian cooperation following the official start of Brexit.
The prince will receive the distinction “Romanian Star” from president Iohannis as a sign “of appreciation for the work in Romania and to promote its image in the world.” The award ceremony will take place at the Cotroceni Palace.
This Charles’ second official visit in Romania, after the one from 1998.
