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.

Once portrayed as "the other woman" by the British media, one royal correspondent described Camilla as "my favorite royal, by a country mile", according to the magazine.

They were met by government officials with the Speaker of Parliament, Prof Mike Ocquaye spearheading the delegation.

Yesterday, the royal duo left for their tour of West Africa, just days after Prince Harry and Meghan returned from their Australian tour.

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

The waterfront was conceived by David Adjaye, the principal architect who crafted the design for Ghana's future national cathedral.

Prince Charles would also meet with a number of British Ghanaians doing various businesses.

Prior to Prince Charles and Camilla's visit to Ghana, President Akufo-Addo said that he looks forward to meeting them both and "we look forward to receiving him, as his visit will renew and strengthen the bonds of friendship between the United Kingdom and Ghana".

Prince Charles will also attend a meeting with Ghanaian and global business leaders to discuss sustainable practice in Ghana's cocoa industry and key environmental issues.
