Prince Charles, Camilla in Ghana on second Africa stop

Prince Charles

Charles and Camilla will be visiting Gambia, Ghana, and Nigeria on the nine-day trip, and from the message that Charles posted on Instagram and YouTube on Wednesday, it seems that the lovebirds could not be more excited about the tour.

Prince Charles' visit to Ghana is the first since 1977.

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.

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.

This will be The Duchess of Cornwall's first visit to Ghana.

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".

Local officials said it was the first royal visit since the country rejoined the Commonwealth.

At the reception Prince Charles was presented with a with a birthday cake.

As Britain prepares to leave the European Union in 2019, the prince aims to "celebrate the UK's dynamic, forward-looking partnerships" with Commonwealth nations, a statement announcing the African tour had said.

At the evening's State Dinner, Prince Charles spoke of the bonds between the people of the United Kingdom and The Gambia, saying, "We have also been fortunate to meet so many people who are making a profound difference to this partnership, whether British or Gambian or, indeed, one of the countless people who have a home in both countries and are, in so many ways, a living bridge between us".
