Now that the whirlwind first tour for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has come to an end (quickest 16 days ever?), fans of the royal family have turned their attention back to London, England.

According to JoyNews reports, the couple were at the Jubilee House for a brief ceremony with President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

When the plane touched down, the British High Commissioner to Ghana, Mr Iain Walker, and other British officials embarked to briefly engage with the couple to prepare them to disembark to the waiting arms of the dignitaries.

Visiting Prince of Wales, Prince Charles today took a tour around the Christiansburg Castle in Osu and Jamestown a suburb of Accra as part of his five day visit to Ghana.

Prince Charles of Wales first visited Ghana since 1977. "Some of them were happy, some of them not so happy". So many of our values are influenced by British traditions and institutional arrangements and a lot of the people who are living in your place are doing well; they are well treated.

I remember quite clearly The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh returning from their own visit to The Gambia in 1961 when I was just thirteen and telling me how much they had enjoyed their time here.

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

The documentary, Prince, Son And Heir: Charles At 70, will be broadcast on Thursday, November 8 on BBC One at 9pm.

Prince Charles and Camilla are visiting The Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria through 8 November at the request of the United Kingdom government to "celebrate the UK's dynamic, forward-looking partnerships with these Commonwealth Nations on a range of shared priorities".
