Charles may be pressed to pro­mote trade agree­ments

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

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.
