Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall arrive in Sri Lanka for 2013 CHOGM

Prince Charles of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Colombo, Sri Lanka yesterday, to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (2013 CHOGM).  Prince Charles is representing Queen Elizabeth II, who is the Head of the Commonwealth, and he is expected to participate in the CHOGM opening ceremony, and will host other Commonwealth events including a reception for business leaders and a dinner for Heads of Government.

This marks the first time in 40 years for the 87-year-old Queen to miss this year’s Commonwealth biennial event due to long-haul travel.
