Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall were warned to avoid this country during Asia tour

Prince Charles, 70, and the Duchess of Cornwall, 69 have been on a number of official visits in recent years as the heir to the throne increases his royal duties.

Last year, the couple travelled to Southeast Asia as part of an 11-day tour exploring the region.

It became the most expensive royal trip with it costing £362,000 after travelling by RAF Voyager for the duration.

They visited India, Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore along the way but there was one country they ended up leading off the trip.

Charles and Camilla left Myanmar off their itinerary – but why were they advised against going?

Foreign trips are dictated by the Foreign Office, regarding political relations between countries and the safety of the region.

Myanmar is currently facing a political crisis following the ethnic cleansing, as described by the UN, of Rohingya Muslims in the country.

More than 700,000 people have fled their homes after being faced with violence and rape, and their villages blazed to the ground.

Critics have called for leader Aug San Suu Kyi to have her Nobel Peace Prize taken away for failing to halt the violence.

The Nobel Peace Prize committee advised that there has never been one revoked in the history of the prize.

During the press conference in October 2017, Prince Charles’ Scott Furssedonn-Wood said, when asked about leaving Myanmar off the list: “For a tour like this you look at a range of options and we decided to go with Singapore and Malaysia.

“These visits are planned over a number of months, preparations are made and you get to the point… where we decide on the ones that we will pursue for the visit.”

Director of Burma Campaign UK, Mark Farmaner condemned a potential visit saying it would give “legitimacy to the government and the military that are currently violating international law”.

Prince William and Kate Middleton conducted their own tour of Asia in 2012.

The couple visited Singapore and Kuala Lumpur as part of the Diamond Jubilee Tour, as well as the South Pacific island of Tuvalu. They also visited India, Bhutan and India in 2016.

Their trip in 2016 cost £62,331 when travelling by private jet.

Released figures have revealed Prince Charles spent a whopping £1 million on travels last year.

The royal families travel expenses for 2016/2017 cost £4.5 million.

Trips are for immediate family members which includes Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, George and Charlotte, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
