Buhari To Receive Prince Charles And Entourage By 2pm Today

Prince Charles was speaking to a gathering in Ghana's capital Accra where he has been touring with his wife, Camilla.

The third day of the royal visit to Ghana saw the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall welcomed in a "Durbar", a lively ceremony honouring chiefs with gifts and a meeting with the King of the Ashantis.

The event was attended by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, former Presidents Jerry John Rawlings, John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama, and a host of dignitaries and people from various walks of life.

The Asantehene was speaking when the heir to the United Kingdom throne, Prince Charles, paid a visit to him at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi, yesterday.

During a speech at a state dinner the president said, "At the moment, Britain is going through hard moments in trying to define her place in the world in view of Brexit".

He emphasised that, "It is our expectation that trade relations between our two nations will not be negatively affected and that sooner rather than later, those anxieties will be allayed". The Prince of Wales also told the audience about his first visit to the country in 1977 and how he regretted not returning earlier.

They had visited Gambia and Ghana in their West Africa tour and their final stop is Nigeria. In a post shared on Twitter, the photograph is spotted resting in a frame inside of the Government House in Wellington.

The Duchess of Cornwall put on a glamorous display in a pale pink Anna Valentine gown and her Van Cleef & Arpels Snowflake earrings and pendant necklace, while her husband sported a black tux.

Prince Charles says Britain also has a role to play to "robustly promote and defend the values which today make it incomprehensible for most of us that human beings could ever treat each other with such utter inhumanity" referring to the slave trade.
