The King and Queen have embarked on their first Commonwealth trip since the Coronation

King Charles and Queen Camilla shared a special video as they landed in Nairobi, Kenya tonight for their royal tour.

The King and Queen travelled to Germany and France earlier this year, but this trip marks the first Commonwealth visit of Charles's reign.

The Royal Family posted a video on X, formerly known as Twitter, showing the monarch and Camilla reading their itineraries for the upcoming tour on the plane.

They captioned the post saying: "The King and Queen flew to Kenya today ahead of their State Visit, which begins tomorrow.

Although a red carpet was laid out in Nairobi for the royal couple, there will be no public sighting of the King and Queen until tomorrow.

There will be a wreath laying at Uhuru Gdns, a tour of a museum dedicated to Kenya’s history, and later, a state banquet where King Charles will attempt to speak Swahili.

Despite no official sightings, royal fans loved the behind-the-scenes clip of the couple and took to social media to commend the King and Queen.
