The heir to the British throne will also celebrate his 71st birthday during his 10th official visit to India.

"His Royal Highness will witness how India makes use of innovation to respond to natural disasters and how its clean technology is helping deal with the challenges of climate change. He will celebrate our strong cultural links and experience the warm hospitality that diverse religious communities in India have to offer," said Sir Dominic Asquith, the British High Commissioner to India.

Prince Charles participated in a discussion on how to strengthen disaster resilience and tackle the effects of climate change at the Indian Meteorological Department. He will also attend a military service to commemorate the sacrifices of soldiers from India, the UK and across the Commonwealth in both world wars.

He is also scheduled to attend a discussion with influential Indian business leaders to seek their advice and input on sustainable markets.
