The Prince of Wales will travel to Kuwait today as he embarks on the second leg of his tour of the Middle East.

Charles will be welcomed by Britain’s ambassador to the Gulf state Matthew Lodge, Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf and Prime Minister Sheikh Jabber.

The heir to the throne will travel to the Bayan palace for a meeting with Kuwait’s ruler Sheikh Sabah.

This is the Prince’s seventh visit to Kuwait, his last was four years ago.

Charles is on a six-day tour of the Middle East that has already taken him to Jordan where yesterday he denounced the “perverted and brutal misinterpretation of Islam” preached by Islamic State (IS).

He will travel tomorrow to Saudi Arabia then on to Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

The final engagement of day will see Charles attend a reception and take part in a sunset ceremony on the warship HMS Dauntless.

The Type 45 destroyer set sail from the UK for the Gulf at the start of the year for a routine deployment.
