Australia might be welcoming the British royal family to our shores as reports of a royal tour emerge.

According to the Sydney Morning Heralds’ diplomatic source, King Charles and Queen Camilla are on the cusp of confirming an Australian tour for next year.

King Charles is planning to visit Australia and New Zealand in October,” the source told the publication.

An Australian visit has been on the cards since King Charles’ coronation in May, however no firm plans have been laid.

The latest reports seem to indicate the King and Queen are planning their tour for late next year, with the source explaining that the visit would likely coincide with Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Samoa next year.

“It would be next October, it’s very possible it will happen. It would be around the time of CHOGM that he would come, either before or after, that would make sense,” the diplomatic source told the publication.

The week long event is held every two years and sees the 56 nations come together.

The date is also when Camilla’s son, Tom Parker Bowls recently told The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald that his mother and stepfather were planning an Australian visit.

“He’s coming next year, I think,” he said, adding that he “really didn’t know” any other information.

“There’s always a royal tour somewhere. I always assumed that Australia was a very important place to visit,” he said.

The eventual visit will be King Charles’ first as the King. He last visited in 2018 with Camilla.

When Will King Charles And Queen Camilla Visit Australia?

At this stage, reports indicate that King Charles and Camilla will visit in the Spring of 2024—however, nothing has been confirmed.

Where In Australia Will King Charles And Queen Camilla Visit?

The Australian tour locations have not be confirmed, however we expect the King and Queen will make their way around the country. On Queen Elizabeth II’s first royal tour of Australia in 1954, she visited every Australian state and territory.
