"As we set out in the guidelines when they were published, the French delegation will fall within the exempted category of representatives of a foreign country or territory traveling to undertake business in the UK," a spokesperson of PM Johnson mentioned.
Although the royal couple is "pleased" to be welcoming President Macron in the U.K, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla will still be carrying out engagements remotely and will not return to regular public duties due to lockdown regulation.
