King Charles III Welcomes South Africa’s Cyril Ramaphosa #shorts.

King Charles III hosted his first state visit since becoming British monarch Tuesday, welcoming South African President Cyril Ramaphosa to Buckingham Palace.

MORE: Charles, 74, rolled out the traditional pomp and ceremony for the first time as head of state, as Britain seeks to bolster its relations with its biggest trading partner in Africa.

There were gun salutes and a ceremonial welcome from the king and his wife Camilla, the queen consort, before a grand carriage procession along The Mall to Buckingham Palace.

Ramaphosa is scheduled to visit Westminster Abbey to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior and see the memorial stone for former South African President Nelson Mandela. He will also address lawmakers in parliament and meet Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.
