More details on Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla's upcoming tours of Cyprus and Jordan revealed

March is a very busy month for the Royal Family, from Prince William and Duchess Kate's tour of Ireland to Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry stepping down from their senior royal roles. Earlier this week, it was announced Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla are set to head to Cyprus and Jordan, while the Prince of Wales will travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina beforehand.

More details have just been revealed about the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall's overseas trips and what they'll do while there. They're set to more than 50 engagements in nine days, according to HELLO! UK.

While in Cyprus, the couple will visit Nicosia, its capital, along with the Troodos mountains and Larnaca. Their visit to the Mediterranean island will involve plenty of partaking in traditional Cypriot culture, food and crafts. As previously revealed, they'll also recognize the work of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus, which has been working on the island since 1964.

In Jordan, Charles and Camilla will spend most of their time in Amman, the capital, and will also visit cultural, religious and environmental sites throughout the Middle Eastern country. As previously reported, Camilla will also see some of the work Queen Rania has been doing with women and girls, and a good portion of the trip will be focused on what the country is doing to help refugees.

It isn't known what the focus on refugees will involve, but it's worth noting that since 2011, Syrians have been seeking refuge in Jordan due to the ongoing civil war in their country. As of Feb. 6, there were estimated to be more than 650,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan, according to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees.

While in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Charles will see some of the improvements in the country since the Bosnian War of 1992 to 1995 and Bosnian Genocide, which marks its sombre 25th anniversary this year.

Charles and Camilla have both put huge emphasis on remembering victims of genocide and war already this year. In January, the Prince of Wales visited Israel and the West Bank. While in Israel, he attended the World Holocaust Forum in Jerusalem and made a stirring speech about why remembrance is crucial.

The same month, Camilla visited Auschwitz-Birkenau to mark the 75th anniversary of the Nazi death camp's liberation. She attended a moving memorial service with other royals including King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands and King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium.
