The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace to mark today’s UK-Africa 🇬🇧🌍 Investment Summit. At the reception The Duke spoke of his love of Africa, saying: • “The African continent holds a very special place in my heart. • It is the place my father took my brother and me shortly after our mother died. • And when deciding where best to propose to Catherine, I could think of no more fitting place than Kenya to get down on one knee.” • Today’s Summit brought together Heads of State and Government and senior representatives from African countries, key multilateral agencies and high-profile UK and African businesses to demonstrate the strength of the relationship between the UK and Africa. Earlier in the day The Duke held audiences with President @nakufoaddo 🇬🇭 of Ghana and President @PaulKagame 🇷🇼 of Rwanda at Buckingham Palace. The Duke and Duchess were joined at this evening's reception by The Princess Royal and The Earl and Countess of Wessex. The Countess was also celebrating her birthday today — Happy Birthday!

It’s likely that Wills and Kate are feeling a little extra strain when it comes to their workload, since Megan and Harry declared their intention to step back as senior Royals of the establishment last month.
Confirming this strain, the source also told independent.ie that the couple’s Irish visit comes from a “period of transition” which is allowing for Megan and Harry to relocate to Canada.
Megan and Harry had their first, and last Royal visit to Ireland back in July 2018, when they engaged in plenty of pressing matters like enjoying pints of Guinness and cuddling Miggeldy’s Bernese Mountains.
