The British government stated on Thursday “not being aware of any change of plans” in the visit of Charles III to Parisat a time when the French capital is rocked by widespread protests against the retirement reform.
The British king will pay a state visit to France from Sunday that is likely to be marred by strikes and demonstrations.
“I am not aware of any change of plans”, However, a Downing Street spokesman told reporters on Thursday.
It is the monarch’s first trip abroad since he acceded to the throne in September, after the death of Elizabeth II.
Accompanied by his wife, Queen Camila, he must remain in that country until March 29 before traveling to Germany until March 31.
Charles III is scheduled to attend a ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe with French President Emmanuel Macron and a banquet at the Palace of Versailles near Paris before traveling to Bordeaux in southwestern France.
However, the program could be altered, since the French unions mobilized against the reform of the retirement system announced that the royal visit is “in his sights”.
Buckingham Palace said it was closely monitoring the situation.
