King Charles III arrives in Kenya accompanied by Queen Camilla » Capital News


NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 30 – King Charles III has arrived in Kenya, accompanied by Queen Camilla, kicking off a four-day historic visit.

The Royal Air Force carrying The King and The Queen touched down at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) shortly before 11pm.

They are expected at State House on Tuesday morning for a formal ceremonial welcome ahead of talks with President William Ruto.

Officials say Their Majesties will receive full military honours.

The King and the Queen have an elaborate itinerary in Nairobi and Mombasa in the historic visit aimed at solidifying Kenya-UK relations.

Buckingham Palace said the King and Queen (Camilla) will take in the best of Kenya, from its young tech entrepreneurs and creatives to its beautiful forests and coastline.

However, much of the focus ahead of the trip has been on colonial rule, with the palace saying Charles is expected to tackle “the more painful aspects” of its historic relationship with Kenya.

Rights groups and survivors have exerted pressure since last week, demanding a public apology and reparations in billions.
