Prince Charles is currently on tour visiting Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories. Prior to his departure, rising tensions in the region instigated the question of whether it was safe for him to do so. Despite the concerns, Charles set off to make his official appearance in Israel on January 23 and 24.
The centrepiece of the two-day trip was an appearance yesterday at the World Holocaust Forum, marking the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
However, earlier in the month security concerns were heightened after the death of Iran’s top military commander General Qassem Soleimani threatened the outbreak of war across the middle east.
Unsurprisingly, though, the Royal Family have a strong security team behind them who are tasked with keeping the family safe when going about their duty.
Though little is known about the intricacies of exact security plans in place, everyone from bodyguards to the director of royal travel is in on the protocol.

What is clear is that, if Prince Charles safety was at major risk, he would not have embarked on the journey.
Ahead of his departure, Clarence House issued a statement saying: ”We always keep our plans under review for security reasons. We are monitoring the situation very closely.
“Our posts are well practised at managing security for these kinds of visits and are able to adapt to changing circumstances very quickly.”
When travelling, not only to the royals tend to depart with a team of trained security professionals and bodyguards, they also often draft members of local police forces for extra protection.
