The King and Queen will host the President of the Republic of Korea, His Excellency Yoon Suk Yeol, and his wife, the First Lady, Mrs Kim Keon Hee, during a state visit next week.
Expect a great deal of pomp and ceremony, with a Guard of Honour and a state banquet included in the itinerary – and that means tiaras for the royal ladies!
Ahead of the state visit, Charles spent time learning about K-pop music and Korean culture and cuisine as he visited New Malden in south west London earlier this month.
New Malden is home to one of the largest Korean communities in Europe.
