According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, the Sphinx was built around 4,500 years ago – from around the time of King Khafre.

After arriving at the airport in Cairo, Charles and Camilla travelled to the Al-Ittihadiya Palace to meet Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and First Lady Entissar Amer.

Mr al-Sisi, a former field marshal, came to power in 2013 after leading the army to overthrow Mohamed Morsi, the country’s first elected head of state.
