The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall began their tour of Western Africa on Wednesday, landing in Banjul, the capital of The Gambia.

The Duke and Duchess were met at the Kotoka International Airport by the Speaker of Parliament Prof.

According to JoyNews reports, the couple were at the Jubilee House for a brief ceremony with President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The objective of their visit is to strengthen diplomatic ties between Ghana and the United Kingdom and would highlight key themes within the Commonwealth of Nations.

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.

Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, arrived in Accra, Ghana, as part of their week-long African tour to strengthen ties with Commonwealth countries.

Ghana is the ninth country to enter into the Commonwealth, an intergovernmental organisation comprised of 53 member states that are mostly former territories of the British Empire.

They were met on arrival by the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye, and his spouse, who, accompanied by some ministers of state, shepherded the visiting Royal couple into a waiting vehicle and drove off to the Jubilee House to be officially welcomed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

He was presented a pair of clickers on day one of his visit to Ghana and made a decision to go all out.

In contrast, Prince Charles does not appear to have the same kind of relationship with his younger siblings, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

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.

After four days in Ghana, they will then head to Nigeria on Tuesday where they will be welcomed by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
