The Duchess of Cornwall glowed in blue as she stepped out in a stunning frock for the last day of her royal tour of Africa. 

Looking as beautiful as ever, Camilla wowed in the gorgeous knee-length dress as she attended a reception at the British High Commissioner’s Residence alongside husband, Prince Charles.

The outfit, which featured winged long-sleeves and embroidered detailing, was the perfect fit for the event in Nigeria, which concluded the couple’s tour of West Africa.

It was a momentous occasion for Camilla who was happily greeted by a number of locals, including documentary maker Bolanle Olukanni and advocate for women’s health Toyin Saraki.

Meanwhile, Charles thanked guests for the warm welcome to the beautiful country, which marked his fourth visit to Nigeria and his wife’s first. 

“It was of particular importance to my wife and to myself that we should conclude our tour of West Africa by coming here to Nigeria, and to experience, however briefly, something of the extraordinary nature of this immense country,” he said in a speech.

It has been a busy few days for the royal couple, who on Monday attended different solo engagements. Camilla stepped out in Accra, the capital of Ghana. Like she has on previous days, the 71-year-old dressed to impress and kept cool in the African heat with a stylish white tunic and trouser combo.

She attended the Ghana International School to launch the Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition for 2019. The competition is open to young people across the Commonwealth’s 53 countries and was originally founded in 1883. Around 1,500 students greeted Camilla as she arrived at the school. All the students had taken part in the 2018 Queen’s Essay Competition.

She was also spotted at the Ghana International Junior School and met more young students who entertained the royal with reading, dancing and poetry.

Meanwhile, Prince Charles delivered a speech on the Commonwealth at a seperate event. He used his speech to discuss the importance of the Commonwealth and why connections between nations are so important.

“It is clear to me that the Commonwealth remains as vital today, as it has ever been,” he said. “It brings us together, building bridges between our governments and our people, and offering the practical means to work together for a better future.”

Charles also used his speech to acknowledge Britain’s involvement in the country’s slave trade in the 20th Century and the “profound injustice” it inflicted upon its victims.

“The appalling atrocity of the slave trade, and the unimaginable suffering it caused, left an indelible stain on the history of our world,” Charles said. “While Britain can be proud that it later led the way in the abolition of this shameful trade, we have a shared responsibility to ensure that the abject horror of slavery is never forgotten, that we abhor the existence of modern slavery and that we robustly promote and defend the values which today make it incomprehensible, to most of us, that human beings could ever treat each other with such utter inhumanity.”
