What is odd about it Charles and Camilla were there in 2014 for a state visit, the two countries talking about the war on drugs.

I think it's a bit odd that the couple are staying in Buckingham Palace rather than Windsor. Let's hope the roof doesn't begin to leak or a clump of masonry decide to fall at any time.

I am pretty sure Buckingham palace is well maintained.

They will I assume stay in the same suite the Obamas stayed in on a previous visit.

Just of all the places to send a state visit invite too Columbia wouldn't be at the forefront of my mind.

In 2014 Charles and Camilla visited Colombia along with Mexico. Since then Mexico has enjoyed a State Visit to the UK so I suppose it does make sense for Colombia to be given the same privilege.

It is also the first State Visit by Colombia to the UK during the Queen's reign (Mexico has had four).

It is also one of the few countries that the Queen hasn't visited on a State Visit.

China, Ireland, Mexico, Singapore all had Royal visits to and then got inbound UK visits. The cartels losing control of Colombia is a relatively recent thing so it's isn't shocking that they haven't visited before or had the Queen go there and a great reason to have them come now.

Autumn state visits are usually at BP, whilst spring ones could be at either. No set rules, but that is how they have tended to be.

Should be nice to see Charles and Camilla and the Cambridge's participate in this State Visit.

Methinks it will be either C&C or the Cambridge's, not both. Seems like a waste of time for both to be there in a supporting role.

i tend to agree, i would expect to see charles and camilla this time, particularly at the state banquet, but maybe the cambridges will accompany the guests during a day visit of some sort. the cambridges made an appearance during the chinese state visit, but one has to admit that UK interest in china is a lot larger than in colombia. (although i hope i am wrong so that we can see kate in gala attire again!)

State Visits have multiple royals involved. China had the Cambridges, Wessexes, DoY, Princess Royal, Gloucesters, DoK and Princess Alexandra if I recall correctly.

Are you suggesting that where the UK has greater interests, the Cambridge's should be involved, and otherwise, the next King and Queen?

Indeed. However, the " lead supporting" role is played by one couple only.

Folks, there is room for both couples to attend the State Banquet. Now, it may be Charles and Camilla at the welcoming ceremony, but both couples can attend the banquet. Don't forget that the Cambridge's now attend State events. Also, multiple royal couples attend these banquets. It's not an either/or situation.

Many years ago, several royals used to be involved in the welcoming ceremony. One just to look back at the older State Visits of the 80's, 70's, 60's and on back. It's William and Catherine's place to attend. Charles just skipped the diplomatic Chinese State Banquet because he chose to.
