For the crown, this is the first! This Tuesday, June 21, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles flew to Rwanda. For several days they are to meet the inhabitants of this East African country where no member of the British royal family had ever been. If the Prince of Wales is present to attend the meeting of heads of government in the Commonwealth, his wife is also very busy. This Thursday, June 23, the godmother of the charity Book Aid attended a literary event where several children were waiting for her. In a Bombshell dress, Camilla Parker Bowles clearly enjoyed herself with school children who taught her sign language.
At the Public Library in Kigali, the country’s capital, she was greeted by school children who taught her to say hello and thank you in sign language as an example of their inclusive learning. Prince Charles’ wife also helped a group of visually and hearing impaired toddlers play a number game and then gave them a collection of books. The Duchess visited the library’s facilities with Rwanda’s First Lady and Jeannette Kagame, the director of the Kigali Public Library. For her, it was an important appointment as Camilla Parker Bowles is a passionate consumer of literature and is committed to conveying her love of books.
Charles and Camilla: a busy journey
The Duchess sat down smiling with the children, who took a quiz about several novels they read. After leaving them, she took part in another major event organized by the Violence Against Women and Girls campaign group in Rwanda with Carrie Johnson, the wife of the British Prime Minister. This Wednesday, June 22, Prince Charles and Camilla visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial. The couple then met with survivors from the Village of Hope, a community that helps people get out of extreme poverty. They also attended a wreath-laying ceremony and stopped for a moment of reflection at the Name Wall, a very emotional and very symbolic moment.
