Britain's Prince Charles salutes Gambia's return to Commonwealth

Prince Charles and Camilla head next to Nigeria, another former colony with a huge diaspora community in the United Kingdom.

On Saturday, the Prince and Dutchess will visit Kumasi to meet His Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II the Ashantehene at the Manhyia Palace and will attend a traditional procession with the Ashantehene and local chiefs.

-They were met at the airport by the speaker of parliament, Prof. Camilla dressed in an elegant white dress with a summery straw bag and matching nude shoes for the couple's first engagement of the day in the capital city of Accra, where they were welcomed at Jubilee House by President Nana Akufo-Addo and the First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo.

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, have finally touched down in Ghana to begin their historic visit. The visits will highlight key themes in these relationships, including the importance of our Commonwealth ties.

He said Ghana was influenced by British values and institutional arrangements and that a large number of Ghanaians had been living in the UK.

"This will be the first visit to The Gambia for us both although we have heard so many wonderful things about the beauty of its natural environment and the resilience of its people".

The magazine's interview paints Charles and Camilla as charming and easy-going with glowing commentary from the royal press.

They were greeted by President Adama Barrow and his wife, Fatou Bah-Barrow.

Accompanied by some government officials and dignitaries, Prince Charles was taken round the once British-owned slave fort, which served as the seat of Ghana's government for decades.

The Banquet will be attended by senior dignitaries, British nationals, a cross-section of Ghanaians and prominent figures from the areas of business, arts, culture and the media.

Britain and Ghana are members of the Commonwealth Clean Oceans Alliance and, at the summit, made a commitment to work together to protect the oceans by taking steps to eliminate avoidable plastic waste.
