The goal of their visit is to strengthen diplomatic ties between Ghana and the United Kingdom and would highlight key themes within the Commonwealth of Nations.

He said Ghana was influenced by British values and institutional arrangements and that a large number of Ghanaians had been living in the UK.

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.

After the welcome remarks by President Akufo-Addo, the meeting between him and Prince Charles retired into a closed-door session.

On Thursday, Prince Charles called the regime change that ousted longtime dictator Yahya Jammeh an "important milestone".

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.
