Prince Charles, Camilla to visit SA

2011-10-13 15:15
Johannesburg - Prince Charles and his wife Camilla will visit South Africa next month, after making a trip to Arab countries in the Gulf, the British High Commission in Pretoria said on Thursday.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will visit Tanzania immediately after the trip to South Africa, which will last from November 2 to 6. They will arrive in Africa after visiting Kuwait and Qatar.

The trip will focus on job creation, investment, education, disadvantaged people and environmental issues, according to the statement.

Prince Charles officially visited South Africa in 1997 and Tanzania in 1984. While Camilla has been to South Africa privately, this will be her first official trip and she has never been to Tanzania.

      I notice this is under "entertainment" Who would be the clown- the royal couple or JZ and his many wives. I trust that they would also be shown white poverty, much of it a direct result of the ANCs racist policies

      I wonder if China has already approved their visa applications?

  • Klip - 2011-10-13 15:30

    When did they apply for their visas? Has it been approved? "The trip will focus on job creation, investment, education, disadvantaged people and environmental issues, according to the statement." ~ ja right, next joke.

  • FAT MAN - 2011-10-13 15:52

    The prince better not leave that fairy tale princess with our JZ We might end up with an international incident

      Daemos1 - 2011-10-13 16:44

      I don't think JZ copulates with horses

      RuthK - 2011-10-13 17:38

      @Daemos ... nothing would surprise me when it comes to JZ

  • Jonathan - 2011-10-13 16:02

    Oh dear, someone should ask Prince Charles to not wear a kilt while he is here visiting Zuma. It may indicate that he has 'needs' to Zuma.

      Buzzbar - 2011-10-13 17:09

      Will JZ give him brekfast and taxi fare though?

  • Snys - 2011-10-13 16:03
