Their Royal Highnesses arrive in Brunei
The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall were welcomed by the renowned Nepalese servicemen with traditional greetings as they made a brief trip to the Commonwealth country during Their Royal Highness’s Autumn Tour.
When Charles and Camilla arrived in Brunei they were met at the airport by Brunei's Crown Prince Al-Muhtadee Billah and his wife, Princess Sarah.
The royal party walked along a red carpet, through a Bruneian guard of honour, as they were introduced to dignitaries and military officials.
Later that afternoon, The Prince and The Duchess were festooned with garlands when they visited a Gurkha battalion based in Brunei. Lieutenant Colonel Jamie Murray, commanding officer of the 2nd Battalion Royal Gurkha Rifles, hosted the royal couple during the reception at a Brunei royal family residence called Edinburgh Palace.
The Prince of Wales marked his fortieth anniversary as Colonel-in-Chief of The Royal Gurkha Rifles in March, 2017.
Later, Their Royal Highnesses met with The Sultan of Brunei and Her Majesty Raja Isteri.
