The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall Charles and Camilla arrived in Rwanda late on Tuesday evening ahead of a summit of Commonwealth leaders.
It was his first ever royal visit to Rwanda. President Paul Kagame and First Lady Jeannette Kagame received Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall Camilla at Village Urugwiro. According to the Office of the President, they discussed existing partnerships and areas of mutual interest, the New Times reports.
But there has been mixed reaction on social media to the future king of England’s arrival in Kigali, with many criticising the Commonwealth saying that the body simply is not effective in solving critical issues that member states are currently facing.
The Prince of Wales met survivors and perpetrators of the Rwandan Genocide ahead of a summit of Commonwealth leaders on Wednesday. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall visited a memorial and church outside the capital Kigali where the remains of victims are buried.
In 1994, ethnic Hutu extremists slaughtered hundreds of thousands of members of the Tutsi community. The trip marks the first royal visit to Rwanda. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Rwanda on Tuesday night – one of a minority of nations the Queen has not visited.
According to German news broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) Prince Charles has reportedly privately described the British government’s plans to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda as “appalling”, two media reports said.
Earlier this month, Prince Charles was reportedly said to have been concerned that the controversial asylum policy will overshadow the Commonwealth meeting summit, The Times reported.
