Prince Charles in development vow to Gambia

Prince Charles

Have you ever met one of the royals?

In the company of his wife, Rebecca, President Akufo-Addo gave an assurance that Ghana was determined to maintain its firm relationship with the United Kingdom and ensure that trade relations, among others, were strengthened for the mutual benefit of the two nations and their people.

The visits will highlight key themes in these relationships, including the importance of our Commonwealth ties.

Gambia's President Adama Barrow sits with Britain's Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, at McCarthy Square during an official welcome ceremony in Banjul, Gambia November 1, 2018.

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

A statement issued by the British High Commission in Accra and copied to the Ghana News Agency said the visit would celebrate the shared values and culture between the two nations.

Trump Hints China Trade Moves for Argentina G20 After Xi Call
China has responded with retaliatory duties on $110 billion worth of USA goods. The Chinese president also said he would like to meet Trump at the G20.

On Saturday, November 3, the British Royal will call on the Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II at the Manhyia palace.

In a rare moment of PDA, Camilla is even pictured with her hand resting on Prince Charles' leg in a photo taken in Clarence House's Garden Room.

They will also make a trip to the Christianborg Castle which was previously owned by the British. The waterfront was conceived by David Adjaye, the principal architect who crafted the design for Ghana's future national cathedral.

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".

Camilla is set to attend The Women of the World festival, for which she is President.
