Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla cancel engagement in Nigeria over security scare

Why Prince Charles has pulled out of final leg of Africa tour Prince Charles, Duchess Of Cornwall Arrive In Nigeria
Charles Bowen | 08 November, 2018, 10:42

Prince Charles was supposed to be travelling to Jos later this week on the final leg of his four-day royal tour of West Africa with the Duchess of Cornwall.

The Prince of Wales, Charles and his wife, Camilla have arrived Lagos State as part of their official visit to Nigeria.

Over the past 50 years the Prince has become well known for his strong views on issues such as climate change, the environment, architecture and support for young people. So, it is about strengthening ties, particularly people-to-people ties.

Recall that Prince Charles took over as the head of the Commonwealth of Nations last April, succeeding his mother Queen Elizabeth II.

The visiting Prince of Wales, Charles, has been presented with the Companion of the Order of the Star of Ghana. Film-maker John Bridcut speaks to those who know him best, including Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex.

He explained: "All these unusual activities that go on, people dressing up, is actually rather important because it defines the particular boundaries and the way in which the constitution works, because nothing is written down".

The top diplomat said that other events lined up on the agenda of the visit would focus on culture, music, fashion, among others.

It does seem to me insanity if we are going to bequeath this completely polluted, damaged and destroyed world to them ... "Women get together to discuss things that matter to them, so I think especially here in Nigeria it is a fantastic place to start".

The Prince of Wales has cut out a stop of a trip to Nigeria over security concerns, following months of deadly clashes between nomadic herders and farmers in the restive region.
