The Prince and Mr Johnson are in Rwanda for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). Mr Johnson suggested yesterday that he talk about the ‘obvious merits’ of the migration policy when he meets Charles over a cup of tea this morning.

He said: ‘I am delighted that Prince Charles and everyone else is here today to see a country that has gone through a complete, or a very significant, transformation.’

Mr Johnson told ITV: ‘People need to keep an open mind about (Rwanda) policy, critics need to keep an open mind about policy. Many people can see its obvious qualities. So yes, of course, if I see the prince tomorrow, I’m going to say that.’

Earlier this month it was revealed that Charles had been heard describing the Rwanda plan as ‘horrendous’. Last week Mr Johnson shrugged off criticism of the policy from ‘slightly unpredictable quarters’ in an apparent dig at the Prince and bishops of the Church of England, who attacked it as ‘immoral’.

The three themes on the agenda of the Prime Minister’s meeting with Charles are sustainability, youth, and the history and values ​​of the Commonwealth and Charles’ passion for it. Royal sources said it was “unlikely” that the two men would discuss the Rwanda plan.

Downing Street later repeated the same line in what appeared to be a coordinated effort to reduce the chances of a showdown between the prime minister and the prince, but a spokesman did not rule out the possibility of Mr Johnson raising it. .

‘You have to break the gangs’ business model – that’s the totally right thing to do.

‘What people need to understand is that what critics of the policy need to understand – and I have seen a lot of criticism – is that Rwanda has gone through a complete transformation in the last few decades.’

He added that the UK and Rwanda have ‘put an enormous amount of caution in the way things work, both in the UK and in Rwanda, so that everything we do is in line with human rights’.

A visit to Rwanda is considered extremely important for Charles. He and Camilla are the first British royals to visit the country, and it is the first CHOGM they have attended since she was chosen to take over as head of the Commonwealth after the Queen.

The focus was on travel. On the 1994 Rwandan Genocide.

After meeting with Rwanda's President Paul Kagame yesterday, Johnson said the leader

After meeting with Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame yesterday, Johnson said the leader “cares passionately” about the policy of Britain, which has been a refugee in neighboring Uganda.

Charles is accompanied by Sir Edward Young, the Queen’s private secretary, who is the monarch’s main point of contact with Number 10. She is there as the Queen remains the head of the Commonwealth. Sir Edward is believed to have been involved in behind-the-scenes discussions between Charles and the Prime Minister to resolve the issue.

The first flight to ferry asylum seekers from Britain to Rwanda was due to take off last week, but was grounded in successful challenges to the European Court of Human Rights ahead of a full hearing on the plan’s legality in UK courts.

The policy is an element of a £120 million economic deal with Kigali, but has been widely criticized due to concerns about Rwanda’s human rights record. Last night, a spokesman for the government of Rwanda said Britain had repaid all the money, and some of it had been spent, making it unlikely that anything would be taken back if the policy faltered.

After meeting with Rwandan President Paul Kagame yesterday, Mr Johnson said Mr Kagame cares ‘zealously’ about the UK’s policy of refugee in neighboring Uganda. Mr. Kagame has been praised for his role in ending the 1994 genocide, in which ethnic Hutu extremists killed 800,000 people. But his regime has since been accused of political repression, murders and the imprisonment of critics.
