Queen Camilla arrived for her and King Charles III’s state visit to Kenya on Tuesday in the country’s capital, Nairobi, in a white, long-sleeve midi dress, before changing into a different look in the evening.
For her initial arrival to the African country, which is part of the British Commonwealth, the Queen of England accessorized the dress with a silver brooch and carried a small white top-handle bag. She completed her look with beige shoes with a black cap toe.
Her husband, King Charles, opted for a pin-striped suit in a lighter blue color compared to some of his darker-colored diplomatic looks. He paired the suit with a white shirt and a light blue pattern tie. He accessorized the look with a blue pattern pocket square and red lapel flower pin. He topped off his look with black dress shoes.
King Charles III and Queen Camilla were received by William Ruto, the president of Kenya, and his wife, Rachel Ruto, at a ceremonial welcome at the Kenya State House. The king and queen of England are visiting Kenya for four days at the invitation of the president. The visit comes as Kenya is preparing to celebrate 60 years of independence. Despite its independence, Kenya is still part of the British Commonwealth.
The visit to Kenya marks King Charles III’s first visit to the country since his ascension to the throne. It’s a poignant moment as his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, was visiting Kenya when she ascended to the throne while in 1952.
Later in the evening for a state banquet in honor of the visit, Queen Camilla wore a light blue maxidress with metallic silver shoes and a silver clutch.
