Britain’s Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Nigeria on Tuesday on the third and final leg of their Africa tour.

The royal pair were received at the presidential villa in Abuja by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari after which the heir-to-the-British-throne met with religious leaders and traditional rulers.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will be visiting the commercial city of Lagos on November 7 on the second day of their three-day visit to the country.

The royals are on the final leg of a tour of three African nations, having already visited Gambia, which he congratulated for turning its back on autocratic rule and returning to the Commonwealth and Ghana where he acknowledged Britain’s role in the slave trade, calling it an appalling atrocity.

The royals will conclude their tour a week before Charles celebrates his 70th birthday on November 14.
