The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, are in Accra today on a five-day visit.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were greeted on arrival at the Kotoka International Airport as they start their visit to Ghana.

During the visit, their Royal Highnesses will celebrate the close relationship between the United Kingdom (UK) and Ghana, the importance of their Commonwealth ties and shared values.

The visit, which is part of a West Africa tour, will be the Prince of Wales’ and The Duchess of Cornwall’s first visit to the Commonwealth since Commonwealth Heads of Government unanimously decided the Prince should succeed Her Majesty The Queen as the future Head of the Commonwealth, during the Commonwealth Summit held in London in April this year.

The summit was the largest of its kind in British history, with leaders agreeing a range of actions to build a reformed and revitalised Commonwealth that was fairer, more sustainable, prosperous and secure.
