How the King of England is doing on his annual trip to the royal family’s private estate in Cambridgeshire
In his first overseas trip since taking office in 2021, King Edward II is on the hunt for the perfect summertime destination, his official spokesman said Monday.
“The king has already made his first foreign visit to Cambridge, in 2019, and the queen is due to visit this year,” the spokesman said.
“The royal family are very much in touch with the local community in Cambridge.”
The king and queen, who are in the midst of a honeymoon period, are expected to arrive in the town on June 11.
It is a day-long excursion that would likely feature at least one public event.
It is not clear whether they will stop by the mansion on their way.
Edward II and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, are spending their summer on a five-day holiday in Cambroke, the royal estate on the island of Lough Neagh, near Dublin.
The royal visit comes as Britain faces an uncertain future in the wake of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president.
