Cape Town - Monaco's Prince Albert and his wife Princess Charlene are back in South Africa for the COP17 conference.

The royal couple - who married in a lavish two-day ceremony in July and honeymooned in South Africa - arrived on Tuesday for the COP 17 Conference, which is held in Durban from November 28 to December 9.

The Monaco Palace's official Facebook page and their website confirmed the royal visit.

Albert will take part in the opening plenary session and various workshops.

Albert and Charlene are also due attend the UNEP One billion Tree Campaign at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, where he will pay tribute to Wangari Mattai, a member of his foundation's board of directors.

The final day of the visit on Thursday will see the royal couple meet with Archbishop Desmond Tutu - who Charlene first met with last July - in Cape Town to discuss humanitarian operations in South Africa to establish synergies with the Princess'S future charity.

Albert and Charlene will end their visit by attending the presentation of the Polaris project by the Polar International Foundation at the Clock Tower.
