The Prince of Wales will arrive in Rwanda for the much-awaited Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) that was postponed by the pandemic.

Charles will represent the Queen, head of the Commonwealth, when prime ministers and presidents gather in Rwanda for the global summit.

The visit has been overshadowed by a recent report in the Times which claims Charles branded the Government’s policy to send migrants to Rwanda “appalling”.
