Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall arrive in Accra today

Prince of Wales, Prince Charles has observed and kept the Sabbath Day holy as he joined Christians to worship at the Accra Ridge Church as part of his five-day visit in Ghana.

Following the event at MacCarthy Square, where the Union Jack was lowered in 1965 and the Gambian flag raised, the Duchess of Cornwall visited a middle school on the outskirts of Banjul to donate a metalwork lathe and plant a tree.

The Prince of Wales on Thursday (Nov 1) called on The Gambia to work with Britain to promote democracy almost two years after the small West African nation emerged from decades of authoritarian rule. "I am sure these five days that you are going to be here will be a memorable time for both of you", said President Akufo-Addo, at the seat of the Presidency. So we are very happy to have you here.

Meanwhile, 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. "Some of them were happy, some of them not so happy".

Husband Prince Charles looked dapper, too, choosing a navy double-breasted suit and a pretty floral buttonhole for his arrival.

Earlier this week, Camilla was credited with bringing the "sparkle" back to Prince Charles' eye in an intimate magazine article, which gave an inside glimpse at the couple's marriage like never before.

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.

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.
