PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Prince Charles and Camilla have paid tribute to the victims of the 1994 Rwandan genocide during a visit to a memorial in Kigali.The future king, 73, was joined by the Duchess of Cornwall in the Rwandan capital where they met survivors and perpetrators of the mass genocide and paid homage to the victims by laying a wreath of white roses that included a card signed by the couple and silver ribbons embossed with the words 'Never again'.Charles is representing the Queen at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting for the first time since he was chosen to inherit her position as head of the global 'family of nations' in 2018.The trip will be the first royal visit to Rwanda and one of a minority of the world's nations the Queen has not visited.During the engagement, Camilla, 74, wore a navy blue floral tunic dress, paired with heeled nude pumps, pearl earrings and a five motifs Van Cleef & Arpels vintage blue Alhambra bracelet, worth nearly £4,000, while Charles wore a cream-coloured linen suit. The royal couple went on to receive a personal guided tour of the memorial's exhibits on the ground floor before heading upstairs to view 'the children's room', which displays details and photographs, taken before the genocide, of children who were killed. The couple read intently the comments about the youngsters murdered during the 1994 genocide, and Charles reacted by saying: 'Terrible, happens all too often.'His wife lamented 'what humans can do to humans'.The duchess bonded with one survivor of the genocide during her visit, when she was hugged by Uzamukunda Walida who was gang raped but now openly discusses her experience.The remains of an estimated 250,000 victims are buried in the grounds of the memorial, which features an education centre, where the couple laid a wreath of white blooms, with a handwritten card by Charles that read: 'In everlasting remembrance of those who died in the genocide against the Tutsi.' In 1994 hundreds of thousands of members of the Tutsi community were slaughtered in Rwanda by ethnic Hutu extremists. The issue of genocide and reconciliation is said to be very close to the prince's heart and he will also visit a village that was targeted later today. The Prince of Wales is representing the Queen, head of the Commonwealth, when prime ministers and presidents gather in Rwanda for the global summit.He faces a potentially awkward meeting with Boris Johnson following the revelation earlier this month that he had privately described the Prime Minister's Rwandan asylum scheme as 'appalling'.Clarence House has declined to comment on 'supposed anonymous private conversations' except to restate that Charles remains politically neutral and 'matters of policy are decisions for government'. Meetings are planned toward the end of the week at which the prince and the Prime Minister will be present. more videos 1 2 3 Watch video Shocking moment man is savagely attacked near Victoria station Watch video Kate Bush says 'world's gone mad' after topping charts with 1985 hit Watch video Bears get into ferocious fight on the porch of a Lake Tahoe home Watch video Margarita Simonyan welcomes prospect of global famine Watch video Carpet python snacks on Lorikeet while hanging from gutter Watch video Drone footage catches shark closing in on paddleboarders Watch video Putin to 'strengthen and modernise' military as Ukraine war rages on Watch video Mick Lynch reacts angrily to Kay Burley's miners' strike insinuation Watch video Gary Lineker admits receiving racist abuse due to his 'darker skin' Watch video Mortally wounded brown bear slays hunter in revenge attack Watch video Man uses an Apple airtag to hunt down lost luggage at airport Watch video Woman is prevented from inheritance until she gets a job DM.later('bundle', function(){ DM.molFeCarousel.init('#p-17', 'channelCarousel', { "activeClass" : "wocc", "pageCount" : "3.0", "pageSize" : 1, "onPos": 0, "updateStyleOnHover": true }); }); Prince Charles looked mournful as he was shown the skulls of victims in the 1994 Rwandan genocide during a visit in Nyamata today Charles and Camilla received a personal guided tour of the memorial's exhibits on the ground floor and see photographs of victims of the 1994 genocide Prince Charles and Camilla also met with the Rwandan president Paul Kagame and First Lady Jeannette Kagame Prince The Prince of Wales is shown victims' clothes and their belongings during a visit to the Nyamata Church Genocide Memorial where approximately 5,000 Tutsis were killed between the 14th and 16th April, 1994 Prince of Wales lays a white wreath during a visit to the Nyamata Church Genocide Memorial on Wednesday  Charles, 73, was joined by the Duchess of Cornwall in the Rwandan capital where they met survivors and perpetrators of the mass genocide and paid homage to the victims by laying a wreath of white roses Charles is representing the Queen at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting for the first time since he was chosen to inherit her position as head of the global 'family of nations' in 2018 During the engagement, Camilla, 74, wore a navy blue floral tunic dress, paired with heeled nude pumps, pearl earrings and a five motifs Van Cleef & Arpels vintage blue Alhambra bracelet, worth nearly £4,000 The Prince of Wales and his wife Camilla were welcomed to the engagement by survivors of the mass genocide on Wednesday  Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall lay a wreath on Wednesday during a visit to the Kigali Memorial for Victims of the 1994 Rwandan genocide The couple paid homage to the victims by laying a wreath of white roses that included a card signed by the couple and silver ribbons embossed with the words 'Never again' The royal couple also headed upstairs to view 'the children's room', which displays details and photographs, taken before the genocide, of children who were killed The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall meeting President of Rwanda Paul Kagame (second right) and his wife Jeannette Kagame (left) in Kigali The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall meeting President of Rwanda Paul Kagame (right) in Kigali The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall meeting President of Rwanda Paul Kagame (right) in Kigali Prince Charles, Prince of Wales writes a note on the guest book as Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, looks on at the Kigali Genocide Memorial, Kigali, Rwanda Prince Charles, Prince of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall lay a wreath during a visit to the Kigali Memorial for Victims of the 1994 Rwandan genocide on June 22 Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are greeted as they arrive at the Kigali Genocide Memorial, Kigali, Rwanda on June 22, 2022 during a visit The entrance to the Nyamata Church Genocide Memorial for Victims of the 1994 Rwandan genocide RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 2 Next Prince Charles touches down in Kigali in first ever royal...

Share this article Share The 1994 Rwandan Genocide: 100 DAYS that saw 800,000 people slaughtered:The Rwandan genocide started on April 6, 1994, when President Habarimana's plane was shot down over the capital Kigali.His death triggered a genocide that was one of the worst in modern history.It brought years of ethnic tensions to the surface, with extremist Hutus waging a violent campaign of extermination against the minority Tutsis.It lasted 100 days and 800,000 Tutsis were killed, alongside thousands of Hutu moderates who objected to the killing.They were slaughtered by supporters of the Hutu government, who claimed to be 'weeding out the cockroaches'.Men, women and children were felled by machetes, grenades and bullets in their homes and on the streets, even as they sought sanctuary in churches and schools.The killings only stopped when the Tutsi-controlled Rwandan Patriotic Front seized control, and put Paul Kagame into power.The international community, and the UN, were criticised for failing to act, despite warnings from inside the country that genocide was taking place.Mass graves are still being found to this day.The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda has sentenced more than 60 people for their involvement, while nearly two million have stood before Rwandan community court. adverts.addToArray({"pos":"mpu_factbox"})Advertisement The Prince of Wales has attended five of the 24 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting meetings held since 1971, including Edinburgh in 1997, Uganda in 2007, Sri Lanka in 2013 (where he represented The Queen), Malta in 2015 and the UK in 2018. Leaders of Commonwealth countries meet every two years for the meeting which is hosted by a different member country on a rotating basis. The prince and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in the Rwandan capital aboard the ministerial jet RAF Voyager.Charles will hold several meetings to 'listen and continue to learn' about the key issues that the countries of the Commonwealth are facing, particularly over climate change, economic development, opportunities for the young and gender equality.Ahead of CHOGM, the prince hailed the potential of the Commonwealth to make a difference on issues like climate change or providing opportunities for young people.He said: 'Taking shared responsibility to solve problems like these means the Commonwealth has the potential to make a profound difference in the lives of its citizens - and, in so doing, to be an unparalleled force for good in our world.'Charles had been encouraged by former Rwandan footballer Eric Murangwa to visit a church outside the Rwandan capital where the remains of tens of thousands of genocide victims are buried, which he attended today.Mr Murangwa was sheltered from the killings by teammates, and Charles made him an MBE in recognition of his efforts raising awareness of the genocide against the Tutsi. He is the founder of the organisation Football for Hope, Peace and Unity.In April, Mr Murangwa was invited to watch as the prince planted a tree at Dumfries House in commemoration of the genocide victims.The Prince of Wales later visited the Nyamata Church Genocide Memorial without his wife and was shown victims' clothes and belongings, where approximately 5,000 Tutsis were killed between the 14th and 16th April, 1994. Charles looked mournful as he looked at the skulls of victims Rwandan genocide during the Nyamata visit on Wednesday.
