God but my bread! & # 39; Prince Charles drops Queen & # 39; s English for pidgin

Prince Charles made a hilarious speech to an audience in Nigeria and said to them: "If someone is a party, follow the wash plate!"

Speaking in a mix of pidgin and Yoruba – a West African language – he said that it was special to be here, just a few days before my 70th birthday, in the land of the Owambe & # 39 ;, a Yoruba word for sumptuous celebrations.

Warming up his theme in the residence of the deputy high commissioner in Lagos, Charles said: "Una people. After fine Lagos people (great people from Lagos). I greet you! & # 39;

& # 39; How do you know? (How are you?), He added, cheers and laughter from the audience, including supermodel Naomi Campbell.

Campbell and Charles have known each other for years and met at a reception in Nigeria, on the penultimate day of Charles & # 39; s official visit to West Africa

What he said and what it meant

& # 39; If someone is having a party, follow the wash plate! & # 39;

One should not keep their welcome delayed.

& # 39; Owambe & # 39;

A Yoruba word used to characterize big parties.

& # 39;Una people. After nice people from Lagos! & # 39;

Great people from Lagos!

& # 39; How are you crazy? & # 39;

How are you?

God but my bread! & # 39;

My wish has been granted!

& # 39; If your spirit of life shows you pepper, my husband makes pepper soup! & # 39;

Always look at the positive side of life.

& # 39; My friends, you are doing well! & # 39;

Thank you!

On the penultimate day of his visit to West Africa, the prince added: "I find it hard to believe that nearly 30 years have passed since I first came to this city and finally came back here, ladies and gentlemen, all I can say is that God only pours my bread! (My wish has been granted). & # 39;

He emphasized the work of his Prince & # 39; s Trust International and added: "If life dey shows your pepper, my husband makes pepper soup! (Always look at the positive side of life). & # 39;

Charles said he was struck by the dynamism and energy of Lagos and his "vital role as the beating cultural and economic heart not only of Nigeria but of the entire region", but emphasized the challenges of climate change, population growth, youth unemployment and pollution.

He concluded: & # 39; Unfortunately, my time in Lagos, and indeed in Nigeria and West Africa on this tour, is coming to an end soon and I have to say goodbye to you soon. As I am sure, you will all agree, if someone is tey for a party, then follow the wash plate! (One should not keep their welcome delayed). My friends, you are doing well! (Thank you) & # 39 ;.
