3 photos of the British Royals as they arrive in Ghana

Prince Charles and Camilla were welcomed by Gambia's President Adama Barrow and his wife Fatou Bah Barrow at the airport in Banjul

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that First Lady Melanie Trump of the United States had also visited Ghana recently to promote her "Be Best" child welfare initiative.

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".

Britain's Prince Charles congratulated Gambia on Thursday for turning its back on "autocratic" rule at home and returning to the Commonwealth fold as he began a nine-day Africa tour.

Prince Charles and Camilla were presented with a Kalabash containing kola nuts, which is a symbol of honour in welcome ceremonies, and met members of the Gambian delegation before continuing with the welcome ceremony.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo yesterday welcomed the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, to the Jubilee House, with a call on the United Kingdom (UK) and Ghana to make concerted efforts to increase their trade relations.
