  • Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall begin tour of The Gambia

President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has met the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall at the Jubilee House, noting the visit by the Royals underscores the importance of the relations between Ghana and the United Kingdom. So we are very happy to have you here.

Prince Charles and Camilla then travelled to the Coco Ocean Hotel for a performance by a Kora ensemble, a West African 21-string lute-bridge-harp, and a "cultural dance and acrobatic display in the tradition of the Kayorn Kalorn, Banjul, Kabakel and Fula Juboo tribes".

They were met by government officials with the Speaker of Parliament, Prof Mike Ocquaye spearheading the delegation.

The British royals landed in Accra on Friday afternoon.

The doting dad-of-two Charles - whose son Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle announced in October that they were having their first child together - has previously opened up about being a grandfather, saying: "It's a different part of your life".

The British High Commissioner is expected to host Prince Charles to Royal dinner to mark his 70th birthday.

Once portrayed as "the other woman" by the British media, one royal correspondent described Camilla as "my favorite royal, by a country mile", according to the magazine.

The Prince of Wales, who took over the 53-member Commonwealth of Nations in April, last visited Ghana more than 40 years ago.

On the first day of her visit, Camilla shone out in a knee-length turquoise tunic and white flared pants to meet President Adama Barrow at the State House in The Gambia.
