Prince Charles plants olive tree in ancient Jordan town

The Prince of Wales was accompanied by his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, as they toured the site known as the Gadara ruins located in the northwest of the country, near Jordan's borders with Israel and Syria.

On Tuesday, Charles and Camilla visited the site on the river Jordan where Jesus is believed to have been baptized, which began the first overseas tour by senior British royals since before the COVID-19 pandemic.

After Jordan, the British royals will visit Egypt, where they are due to meet President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
