Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall begin tour of The Gambia

Britain's Prince Charles Prince of Wales is making his first visit to The Gambia

The Prince will also meet with Ghanaian and worldwide business leaders to discuss sustainable practice in Ghana's cocoa industry.

-They were met at the airport by the speaker of parliament, Prof. Mike Ocquaye, before being taken to the Ceremonial Room of the Jubilee House to interact with President Akufo-Addo. Ghana was the first majority-ruled African country to join the Commonwealth in 1957 and the visit aims to highlight Britain's enduring relationship with Ghana.

Prince Charles had an impromptu vibesing session with a traditional band after he arrived in Ghana for the latest leg of his West African tour.

He said Ghana was influenced by British values and institutional arrangements and that a large number of Ghanaians had been living in the UK. From the snapshots of the royal couple taking a romantic stroll through their garden and cuddled up on a couch, it's clear that Charles and Camilla - who have been married for 13 years - are just as happy now as they were on their wedding day in 2005.

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.
