Prince William will visit Kenya next week as part of his three-State African tour that he will see him also visit Tanzania and Namibia.

A statement from Kensington Palace said the main agenda of his visit concerns the fight against illegal wildlife trade.

“The private working trip is being made as United for Wildlife President and Tusk Organisation Patron ahead of the 2018 Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference in London,” Kensington Palace said.

According to ITV, his Kenyan visit, scheduled for September 30, will also include a tour of the 1st Battalion the Irish Guards Battlegroup.

This includes an infantry company from the Kenyan army, training under the British Army Training Unit Kenya, the report adds.

“Prince William, who is Colonel of the Irish Guards, will learn how British and Kenyan troops are working together to improve performance on operations,” ITV said.

The last time that Prince William was in Kenya was in 2016 as a guest at the wedding of his ex-girlfriend Jessica Craig at the Lewa Wildlife Reserve.

During the visit, he met with President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi where they discussed the relationship between their two countries.

British media have alluded to his unspoken love for Kenya where he proposed to his wife Kate Middleton eight years ago. The cabin located in Rutundu, on the slopes of Mt. Kenya remains a popular tourist spot.

Other high profile world leaders who have visited Kenya this year include President of the Swiss Confederation Alain Berset, Prime Ministers Lee Nak-Yeon (South Korea) and Theresa May (Britain) as well as former U.S. President Barack Obama.
