Prince Harry has traveled to Rwanda on a private trip, two months after Prince Charles called the UK government's policy to deport aslyum seekers to the country 'appalling'.
The Duke of Sussex is visiting the East African nation in his role as President of African Parks, one of the few patronages he has managed to retain since withdrawing from the Royal Family in January 2020.
The 37-year-old arrived in Rwanda on Monday, after spending three days in Mozambique hosting a tour of the country's conservation efforts for a US delegation. He was not joined by the Duchess of Sussex, who is understood to have stayed at home in California with their two children, Archie and Lilibet.
Prince Harry's surprise trip to Africa comes just a month before his Europe tour with Meghan Markle in September, which will see the royal couple visit the UK for the first time since the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in June. After leaving Mozambique, the duke took a three-hour-long flight to Rwanda's capital, city, Kigali, where he was received by President Paul Kagame. A photo shared by the president's official Twitter account confirmed the prince's arrival. It is the first time Prince Harry, who has previously cited Africa as the romantic spot he met 'soul mate' Meghan Markle, has traveled to the landlocked nation.
His trip comes shortly after Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla visited Rwanda on behalf of the Queen for a global summit on the future of the Commonwealth. It's understood that the future King called the UK government's policy to send asylum seekers to Rwanda 'appalling' in a private conversation during his time there.
Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla also pay their respects to those killed in the 1994 Rwanda Genocide during a visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial, laying a special wreath with a handwritten note in remembrance of its 1 million victims.
