Prince Charles & His Wife Will Visit Nigeria This November


Charles, Prince of Wales is the heir apparent to the British throne as the eldest child of Queen Elizabeth II. He has been Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay since 1952, and is the oldest and longest-serving heir apparent in British history.


The Prince of Wales, Charles; and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, will, on November 6, arrive Nigeria as part of a nine-day tour of Africa. The visit, which is at the request of the British Government, will also include the Gambia and Ghana.
A statement by the United Kingdom High Commission in Abuja on Wednesday stated that the royal visit will celebrate UK’s dynamic, forward- looking partnerships with the three Commonwealth nations on a range of shared priorities.


“During the visit, the Royal Highnesses will meet some of Nigeria’s dynamic youths as well as traditional leaders, the business community, the armed forces, and people from the arts, fashion and charitable sectors,” the statement signed by UK Mission Senior Communications Officer, Tinu Adelegan, noted.

The visit, she said, would highlight key themes in the relationship between UK and Nigeria, including the importance of Commonwealth ties; youth opportunity; business and entrepreneurship; educating women and girls; literacy, defence co-operation, and religious and cultural diversity and opportunities for closer cooperation between the Nigerian and UK artists in music, art, cinema, and fashion.
British High Commissioner, Paul Arkwright, said, “I look forward to welcoming Their Royal Highnesses to experience the richness and diversity of Nigeria and to help promote British investment in youth, jobs and equal opportunities in Nigeria.
“The historic links between the Royal family and Nigeria is something we can all celebrate.“
Upon arrival in Abuja, Charles and Camilla will be welcomed by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
In all the three nations, the royal couple would take part in commemorative events to acknowledge the sacrifice made by Nigerian, Gambian and Ghanaian soldiers during the First and Second World Wars and in more recent times, during international peacekeeping missions.
