Charles may be pressed to promote trade agreements
THE PRINCE of Wales’ household is waiting to see what impact Britain’s decision to leave the European Union will have on the official work of the heir to the throne, a royal source has said.
With members of the Royal family regularly undertaking official overseas visits in support of British interests, there is speculation that the Prince could be pressed into action by a future government to make foreign trips in support of new trade agreements.
Royal visits are used to promote the interests of the UK, strengthen relationships with other nations and build ties with new leaders as well as support the charitable interests of the members of the Royal family making the trips.
Asked if the Prince could find himself travelling abroad at the behest of ministers to help with trade deals, the source said: “I think it is way too soon to say. We simply do not know.”
It is understood that Clarence House is monitoring the political situation very closely and is waiting to assess future developments.
