King Charles III is set to visit Kenya within the year, in a bid by the crown to seal ties among commonwealth nations.
Kenya has had its fair share of history with the British Monarchy. Although, besides International Relations, there seems to be a love affair between Kenya and the last surviving mornachy.
It was at the foothills of Mount Kenya in October 2010, when Prince William asked his campus sweetheart, Kate Middleton, to become his royal wife. How much more intimate could it get? The Prime Minister of England, Rishi Sunak’s father was a certified Kenya citizen by birth.
The late Queen Elizabeth II was infact at a time referred to as the “Queen of Kenya”. Lake Victoria was reportedly named after Queen Victoria who was the great-great grandmother to Elizabeth II.
Queen Elizabeth II was reportedly at the Treetops Hotel in Aberdare National Park in 1952 when she got the news that her father, King Geroge VI had passed on.The royal family’s connection with Kenya has transcended personal experience and has very much contributed to strengthening the relationship between Kenyans & Brits.
There seems to be a symbiotic exchange not only in economics, but also culture!
K.O.T speaks for itself though, here are some of the reactions to King Charles III visiting our beloved country.
