The Duke and Duchess of Sussex may have just arrived home from their royal tour, but not before passing the baton to Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, who recently arrived in The Gambia to begin their own overseas tour of West Africa.

His Royal Highness will visit the Christiansborg Castle, once a Danish and then British, slave fort, which was until a few years ago the seat of Ghana's Government after independence, to discuss the future restoration and reuse of the area, as part of a major redevelopment of Accra's waterfront, conceived by the Ghanaian Government with the architect Sir David Adjaye.

Ghana was the first majority-ruled African country to join the Commonwealth in 1957 and the visit aims to highlight Britain's enduring relationship with Ghana.

"The UK and Ghana's shared history and common values form the basis of our enduring friendship".

The Prince and Duchess will tour the city throughout the weekend and depart Tuesday, November 6.
