The Duchess of Cornwall has described her tour of Egypt as “absolutely brilliant” but added that “it’s been too short”.
Prince Charles and Camilla have come to the end of their four-day Middle East tour, during which they visited Jordan.
During a visit to the Jesuit Cultural Centre in Alexandria, the prince and duchess met small groups of artists, filmmakers and campaigners including Ahmed Yassin, founder of social enterprise Banlastic Egypt which campaigns to ban single-use plastic.
When Mr Yassin asked about their trip to Egypt, Camilla replied: “It’s been absolutely brilliant, but it’s been too short, too quick. I would like to see more – you just dip in.”
Speaking about their visit to the country as newlyweds in 2006, she added: “It was the first long-distance trip we did after we were married, so it will always stick with me.
“It was very exciting. I have a lot of happy memories here.”
