Prince Charles is representing the Queen at the summit of Commonwealth leaders held in Kigali, Rwanda. Lorraine Kelly discussed the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall’s visit with royal editor Russell Myers on Thursday’s instalment of her ITV show with the host declaring Charles had “learned lessons” from recent royal tours. 

She said: “I think they’ve learned a lot of lessons after other trips that we’ve been on especially to the Caribbean. 

“They have learned from that, that’s for sure.”

William and Kate’s recent tour to the Caribbean was met with some backlash. 

The Duke of Cambridge addressed the visit during a speech where he applauded the contribution of British-Caribbean communities on Windrush Day.

He said: “My family have been proud to celebrate this for decades — whether that be through support from my father on Windrush Day, or more recently during my grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee, as people from all communities and backgrounds came together to acknowledge all that has changed over the past seventy years and look to the future.

“This is something that resonated with Catherine and me after our visit to the Caribbean earlier this year.”

“Our trip was an opportunity to reflect, and we learnt so much. Not just about the different issues that matter most to the people of the region, but also how the past weighs heavily on the present.”
