On Tuesday, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall toured Jordan, which was documented by Clarence House on Twitter. After meeting with Their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, as well as His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein, the royal couple spent the day exploring the Kingdom.

On Twitter one of the posts read “Next to Elijah’s cave sits the remains of a 5th Century church, the first monastery east of the Jordan River on the early Christian pilgrimage route between Jerusalem and Bethlehem to the west and Mount Nebo to the East.”

The couple was accompanied by HRH Prince Ghazi on a visit to Elijah’s Hill and the Jordan River.

Regarding the Baptism Site, the tweet read “It was particularly special to visit such a significant place for all three monotheistic religions, and where interfaith relations can be celebrated.”

Clarence House shared a few pictures from Camilla’s visit to the Jordan River Foundation (JRF) and wrote “A colourful display of handmade items by local female artisans celebrates the traditional and contemporary arts of rural and nomadic Jordan. The products created are sold worldwide by IKEA, generating sustained employment.”
