Background: Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, is on a private tour of three African countries. On Tuesday (15 March), the Prince was in Kenya where he met President Jomo Kenyatta.
SYNOPSIS: The meeting between Prince Charles and President kenyatta took place at State House in Nakaru. The Prince is in Africa for a holiday and will be spending most of his time observing game in wildlife parks. But he is also taking the opportunity to have private talks with the leaders of those states that he is visiting. Kenya is believed to be particularly popular with the Prince for its large wild-life reserves where he can escape the pursuing newsmen.
But Prince Charles has not been so fortunate on this trip. A group of British newsmen tracked his mobile camp wherever he went after leaving the country's main cities.
The Prince went from his meeting with President Kenyatta to Nakuru National Park. He shares his father's strong interest in the preservation of wildlife throughout the world. But the newsmen following the Prince have been more keen to discover any female companions on the trip and one reporter referred to a "mysterious blonde" at one game reserve. The report prompted the Prince to present the journalist with a stuffed bird with blonde hair stuck on its head.
