King Charles and Queen Camilla will reportedly be heading to Australia for their first visit Down Under since ascending to the throne.

The royal couple will stay for six days before heading to Samoa as part of their tour in the region, sources have told the Daily Mirror.

Buckingham Palace has not yet confirmed the news but the publication reported officials are finalising the plan and will make the announcement in the coming weeks.

King Charles and Queen Camilla will reportedly be heading to Australia for their first visit Down Under since ascending the throne.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese previously welcomed the King and Queen's visit in March, saying he was working to make it happen.

"The King has shown his compassion for Australians affected by recent natural disasters, just as Australians have shown compassion and support for the King following his cancer diagnosis," he said in a statement at the time.

"The King, Queen and members of the royal family are always welcome in Australia.

"My government is engaging with states and territories on options for a possible royal visit."

The speculated trip will be both a reigning monarch's first visit to Australia since the late Queen Elizabeth's tour in 2011 and the first global tour for King Charles since his cancer diagnosis in February.

He returned to duties in April, but has taken a step back as he continues chemotherapy.

Charles, as the former Prince of Wales, and Camilla last visited Australia in 2018 for the Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, also toured the country the same year.
