King Charles and Queen Camilla are reportedly preparing for their first visit to Australia since Charles's ascension to the throne. The royal visit, which has been the subject of intense speculation for months, is expected to take place in October 2024, marking the couple's first visit to Australia since 2018.
Potential Royal Visit Coinciding with CHOGM
The timing of the royal visit is expected to coincide with the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Samoa, a biennial event involving 56 nations. The event, scheduled to start on October 21, brings together developed and developing nations, including Australia, Malaysia, Rwanda, India, Jamaica, Canada, and New Zealand. The exact dates of the royal visit are yet to be confirmed, and it could occur either before or after the CHOGM.
Confirmation from Tom Parker Bowles
Tom Parker Bowles, Camilla's son, confirmed the likelihood of the tour to Australia next year in a discussion with reporters for The Age and SMH. However, he did not provide further details about the schedule or itinerary for the royal couple's visit.

This revelation comes alongside new information that contradicts author Omid Scobie's account of a royal race row. Amidst this controversy, King Charles has made a high-profile appearance, hinting at the complexities of the ongoing situation behind the scenes.
