 King Charles and Queen Camilla on Thursday watched UK-trained Kenyan marines stage a mock beach landing on the third day of their official visit to the former British colony.

After two days in the capital Nairobi, Charles and Camilla travelled to the port city of Mombasa, the original capital of British East Africa.

The training exercise, which saw the marines mount the beach toward the royal entourage as red smoke grenades swirled overhead, was meant to highlight Britain’s close defence cooperation with Kenya.

Kenya is a close military ally of Western nations and has deployed troops to regional hotspots like Somalia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

President William Ruto on Thursday accompanied Their Royal Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla on the visit to the Kenya Navy Base Mtongwe, Mombasa County.
