King Charles III of the United Kingdom is in Kenya for his first state visit to the country and Africa as a monarch.

The king and queen arrived in Nairobi late Monday and were seen warmly received by Kenyan President William Ruto at State House on Tuesday.

President William Ruto described Kenya-UK relations as “better than ever.”

He stated that King Charles III’s visit would strengthen Kenya-UK ties, allowing the two countries to make steady progress in commerce and investments.

“We will work together to build an even stronger and more prosperous future featuring cooperation in strategic areas such as defense and security, education, and climate change for our shared prosperity.”

Charles and Queen Camilla’s four-day visit has been promoted as an opportunity to look forward and strengthen connections between the United Kingdom and Kenya.

The visit is expected to boost the history of decades of British colonial control in another new face.
While acknowledging the “painful aspects” of the countries’ shared past, King will emphasize his devotion to an institution that has been crucial to Britain’s global power since World War II.
