King Charles III and Queen Camilla welcomed by President William Ruto and First Lady Rachel Ruto at State House, Nairobi, as they begin their 4-day state visit.
The King arrived at State House aboard Land Rover Discovery; a British vehicle brand that is used by the British High Commissioner in Nairobi.
Her Majesty Queen Camilla arrived at State House wearing a white crepe silk dress by Anna Valentine with a diamond oyster brooch that was initially owned by the late Queen Elizabeth II.
Shortly after arrival, the United Kingdom (UK) and the Kenya National Anthem were sung and flags of both countries were raised.
Then the King was given a 21-gun salute; a gesture recognized by most countries as the highest honor rendered.
King Charles has also inspected a guard of Honour at State House Nairobi.
The royal majesties were then escorted by President Ruto and First Lady Rachel Ruto to a small tree-planting ceremony before they posed for a photo session at the steps of the State House.
