LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Royal visitors are expected in Louisville this spring.

Media cited a statement on the royal family’s website in reporting that Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, are expected to make a stop in the city on Friday, March 20, during a four-day trip to the U.S.

“Their Royal Highnesses will travel to Louisville, Kentucky where they will highlight the work being done by members of the local community and charitable organisations to protect, preserve and promote the health and well-being of the people of Louisville through community cohesion, clean air and food literacy initiatives,” the statement says.

Prince Charles is expected to be the keynote speaker at a health symposium in Louisville while his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, is scheduled to visit a food literacy project at a farm.

Their trip to Louisville will come after spending three days in Washington D.C., where they will visit sites including the Armed Forces Retirement Home and Mount Vernon and meet with military veterans.

“Their Royal Highnesses will undertake a broad range of engagements to promote the U.K.s partnership with the United States in key areas such as sustainability and climate change, creating youth opportunities, encouraging corporate social responsibility and promoting historical and cultural links,” the statement said.

The couple is expected to arrive in the U.S. on March 17.
