Today the Queen Mother was at the morning service in the Cathedral Nairobi. Thousands of?
Her Majesty, after the morning service went to the camp of the Cameroonians who are stationed in Nairobi and met several of the men who are stationed there, from the RSM to a private who was the youngest member of the regiment.
A little three year old girl, daughter of a member of the regiment presented H.M. with a bouquet of flowers just before she went to the officers mess for an informal meeting with the officers of the regiment.
This afternoon I was given the opportunity to film part of the Royal Train that her Majesty will be travelling on from Thursday onwards during her up country tour.
