Prince Charles, Prince of Wales and his wife Camilla Parker-Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall are currently in Delhi on a two-day tour of the capital. The royal couple is on an eleven-day four-nation tour that includes countries such as Brunei, Malaysia and Singapore. 

Despite the deteriorating environmental conditions in New Delhi, Prince Charles and Camilla attended a number of events in the city, including a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Some of the issues discussed between both parties included climate change, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), economic cooperation, and other bilateral issues. 

As both countries are heavily invested in each others economic and social landscapes, this visit is set to strengthen the existing bilateral relations between UK and India. 

Here are some photos from their visit to the national capital.
