Why Camilla left Prince Charles on their royal tour

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.

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.

Last week Camilla wowed at a black-tie dinner in The Gambia last Thursday, wearing a mint green gown and a £38,500 pair of diamond earrings.

They are Van Cleef & Arpels Magic Alhambra earrings, which feature three white gold, round diamond clover leafs.

Camilla and Prince Charles were joined at the state dinner at the Coco Ocean Hotel, by President Adama Barrow and his wife.

According to the Queen Jewel's Vault, Camilla was first spotted wearing the jewels back in 2012 and she has sported them for several evening engagements, including the Queen's 92nd birthday celebrations in April.
