King Charles and Queen Camilla are planning to visit Australia in 2024, according to reports.
The King, 75, accompanied by the Queen, 76, is expected to travel to Australia just before or after the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Samoa, which is being held in late October 2024.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported: “King Charles is planning to visit Australia and New Zealand in October.”
They quoted an anonymous diplomatic source, who was said to have had contact with the monarch.

The visit has not been formally confirmed by Buckingham Palace, according to a source within Australia’s Labor government.
However, they added: “It’s very possible it will happen.
“It would be around the time of CHOGM that he would come, either before or after, that would make sense.”
There is space for a royal tour in 2024 as Canberra’s parliamentary schedule has a week-long break on both sides of the CHOGM conference.

It would be the royal couple’s first visit to Australia since 2018.
During that tour, Charles and Camilla opened the Commonwealth Games on the Queensland Gold Coast.
According to royal commentators, a royal tour could indicate how much Republican sentiment has grown in Australia.
The most recent opinion poll, held just after Queen Elizabeth II’s death, suggested 46 percent of Australians favoured a republic.
