Following Supreme Court ruling, Prince Charles condemned Rwanda’s ‘shocking’ deportation plan


The Prince, 73, is said to be particularly frustrated because he is due to represent the Queen at the Commonwealth heads of government meeting in the Rwandan capital Kigali this month.

The spokesperson said: “We would not comment on supposed anonymous private conversations with the Prince of Wales, except to restate that he remains politically neutral.

This comes after the judge at the High Court refused to grant an injunction sought by campaigners to block the one-way flight to Rwanda next Tuesday.

“Matters of policy are decisions for Government.”
