King Charles III and Queen Camilla will make a state visit to Kenya next month, his office has said.
King Charles will be joined by Camilla to honour an invitation from Kenya’s President William Ruto, in the country’s 60th anniversary celebration of its independence from Colonial Masters, Britain.
Chris Fitzgerald, deputy private secretary to the King, said: “The King and Queen’s programme will celebrate the close links between the British and Kenyan people in areas such as the creative arts, technology, enterprise, education and innovation, as reported by BBC.
“The visit will also acknowledge the more painful aspects of the UK and Kenya’s shared history, including the Emergency (1952-1960).
“His Majesty will take time during the visit to deepen his understanding of the wrongs suffered in this period by the people of Kenya.”
The state visit trip will run from October 31 to November 3.
King Charles will hold a meeting with President William Ruto, attend a state banquet and hear about how the two nations are working together on issues such as defence and climate change.
