After travelling to western Africa last week, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall has left Prince Charles to complete the couple’s nine-day royal tour on his lonesome.

The Prince of Wales was spotted arriving in Lagos, Nigeria without Camilla on the second to last day of the tour, according to The Express.

Charles and Camilla’s royal tour of Australia

Earlier this year in April, Camilla did the same thing while on a royal tour Down Under.

The reason the Duchess cut her time short in Africa was the same reason why she left Australia early as she “doesn’t want to take too much on”, an insider told The Express.

The schedule was apparently “too much for her”.

A spokesperson for the couple from Clarence House has previously stated Camilla isn’t a fan of flying, therefore this is why she cuts her time on tours short.
