"It's a big honour for us to receive you in Ghana..."

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

According to JoyNews reports, the couple were at the Jubilee House for a brief ceremony with President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. But we are in the happier period now.

The British Royals would on Saturday visit the Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II at the Manhyia palace and subsequently visit the Christianborg Castle which was once owned by the British. But we are in the happier period now.

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.

He said: "He's done an incredible job without telling us what we should be doing or what direction we should be going".

Continuing her current trend of rewearing pieces that she's stepped out in before, Kate's classic midi dress, with elegant flute sleeves and a modern shoulder shape, was first seen on the Duchess during her official visit to Canada in 2016.

Prince Charles, who was accompanied by his wife Camilla, visited a medical research facility run by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and an armed forces training centre, where Gambian troops are preparing for a peacekeeping mission in Sudan. The waterfront was conceived by David Adjaye, the principal architect who crafted the design for Ghana's future national cathedral.

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

Prince Charles also plans to meet with a number of British Ghanaians in the business, arts, culture and media sectors.

He will also meet with key players in Ghana's cocoa industry where he will discuss innovative ways to sustain one of the country's most profitable resources.
