King Charles III and Queen Camilla have begun their state visit to Kenya.

They were welcomed by the President and First Lady of Kenya in Nairobi before heading off on a busy day of engagements.

King Charles first placed a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior at Uhuru Gardens in Nairobi.

The King and Queen also viewed a Mũgumo tree in the Uhuru Gardens, which marks the spot where Kenya celebrated its independence in 1963 by lowering the Union Flag and raising the flag of Kenya.

King Charles then met with young people on the Enterprise Challenge program while Queen Camilla was given a tour of the “Tree of Hope” at State House.

Queen Camilla then travelled to the Eastlands Library, where she met the founders of Book Bunk. Book Bunk is a charity which restored public libraries.

Meanwhile, King Charles visited a museum dedicated to Kenya’s history and City Shamba, an urban farming project.

In the evening, King Charles and Queen Camilla attended a State Banquet hosted by President Ruto at State House.
