This photograph shows The Duke and Duchess of Kent joining Milton Obote upon Ugandan Independence in October 1962. The intention was to leave as friends but often the nations were not as well prepared as had been hoped and some of the successor regimes (like in Uganda) were unstable and/or liable to military takeover.
