I had a sleepless night when I learnt that she had given birth to a royal child. I was overwhelmed with Joy,” she added.

Nakimenya said signs that her family could come close to the royal family appeared during the Kabaka’s visit to Ssempa village in Bulemeezi county in 1996.

The King visited her home and toured the farms. Nakimenya has fond memories of how she was photographed shaking the monarch’s hand.

Nansikombi is said to be staying at an undisclosed place. She regularly contacts her parents on telephone.
