Camilla Parker Bowles has cut her West African tour with Prince Charles short.

According to Laura Mowat, a journalist for Express, the Duchess of Cornwall has left her husband to continue his trip in Nigeria alone. The Prince of Wales was seen arriving at Lagos airport without his wife on the penultimate day of their nine-day tour of West Africa.

Camilla's departure was scheduled ahead of the visit. This isn't the first time that she has abandoned Prince Charles to continue a royal tour alone. Earlier this year, she also cut her Australian trip short.

According to an insider, Camilla "doesn't want to take too much on." A palace insider also told the publication, "The duchess doesn't want this, she does get tired."

"When they visit Australia on a tour the duchess is coming back early," the source added. "The schedule is too much for her, as she’s 70 years old. She doesn’t want to take too much on."

For the Australian trip, Camilla was in good health, but she doesn't like flying. To avoid taking more flights as Prince Charles was scheduled to visit more cities, she opted to fly back home.

"There are no health reasons [for the Duchess pulling out after two days]. She is fit as a flea," the Clarence House spokesman said. "The Duchess does not like flying but I think she sometimes has to embrace that fear and get on with it."

"She is going to the games, which she regards as a very important part of the tour," the spokesman continued. "It's quite a gruelling tour, with some fantastic places for the Prince to visit."

In related news, Camilla and Prince Charles were set to visit Jos, but were advised by the Nigerian officials to cancel it as the place is plagued by violence. In fact, at least 14 people were killed after a gunfire erupted on the edge of the city last month.

"Due to operational constraints beyond our control, we have decided at this time not to include Jos during Their Royal Highnesses visit to Nigeria," a spokesperson for the country's foreign office said.

Prior to visiting Nigeria, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall made a stop at Gambia and Ghana. The Ghanian officials even made a mistake by calling Camilla "Princess Camilla." Technically, she's a princess but refused to be addressed in the said title as it was strongly associated with Princess Diana, Prince Charles' first wife.
