The Elysee Palace announced on Friday that King Charles III of Great Britain’s visit to France was postponed amid demonstrations against pension reform.
It is reported that the visit of the British monarch to France, planned on March 26-29, will be postponed due to a wave of protests in the country against raising the retirement age.
The new date of the visit to the Elysee Palace was not specified.
In early March, the Elysee Palace announced that King Charles III of Great Britain would make his first state visit to France on March 26-29. It was noted that the visit reflects the “deep historical ties” between the countries and will be “an honor for France.” It was planned that Macron would host an official dinner in honor of the British monarch and his wife Camilla at the Palace of Versailles on March 27.
Later, the media reported that the program of the visit of King Charles III to France may be changed, and his dinner with President Emmanuel Macron, scheduled for Monday, may not take place at the Palace of Versailles due to demonstrations against pension reform. In addition, the French trade union SUD-Rail called on everyone to “go to Versailles” to protest against the king’s visit.
