Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall arrive in Accra today

Prince Charles and the Duchess, Camilla, arrived in Accra on Friday to begin a five-day visit that will seek to improve bilateral ties between both countries.

It would be recalled that the Prince of Wales's last visit to Ghana was in March 1977.

They plan on "meeting as many people as possible during our forthcoming visit, bearing in mind the very special memories I have from 40 years ago to re-experiencing the irresistible attractions of highlife and afro-beat", he said in a pre-recorded video released ahead of the visit.

The Prince of Wales was handed a calabash instrument, and while nervous at first, soon found his rhythm.

Following the breakup, Queen Elizabeth came to Ghana in 1961 - a visit signalling that the two countries were ready to fix severed ties.

In a TV interview in 1995, when speaking about her troubled relationship with Prince Charles, the Princess famously declared: "Well, there were three of us in the marriage, so it was a bit crowded". During their visit, their Royal Highnesses will attend a number of events, including an arts festival at the British Council in Lagos to mark the 75th anniversary of the British Council in Nigeria.

During their visit to Accra, Charles and Camilla are due to attend a State Banquet celebrating the ties between the United Kingdom and Ghana.

Prince Charles' presence at the church brought joy and smile to the congregation who were glad to have the Royal in their midst.

The Prince, who landed in Gambia on Thursday, congratulated the country for turning its back on "autocratic" rule at home and returning to the Commonwealth.
