He performed a simple jig and rattled a calabash instrument as he found his rhythm.

There were the sounds of bells, whistles, drums and horns all across Accra when Prince Charles of Wales and his wife Camilla touched down at Kotoka International Airport on Friday.

On Sunday, they will fly to Kumasi, also in Ghana, to see a spectacular durbar, a ceremony paying homage to leaders, and have tea with The Asantehene.

Prince Charles would later meet with key players in the cocoa industry to discuss ways to sustain the country's mostprofitable resources and local policymakers to discuss renovations and reuse of the historic landmark, as part of efforts to redevelop the Accra beach front. "Some of them were happy, some of them not so happy".

He was presented a pair of clickers on day one of his visit to Ghana and made a decision to go all out. But we are in the happier period now. "It's a relationship that we value", Nana Akufo-Addo said.

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

The Duchess of Cornwall began her day meeting with young people for The Queen's Commonwealth Essay Competition at St. Therese's School.

A statement by the ministry's spokesperson, George Edokpa, said the British Royalty and delegation will be received on arrival by the minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, along with the minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Alhaji Muhammed Musa Bello.

Prince Charles visited the Gambian Armed Forces Training School to meet with the Chief of the Defence Staff and attend an global human rights lesson. The waterfront was conceived by David Adjaye, the principal architect who crafted the design for Ghana's future national cathedral.

The Duchess of Cornwall, who had been expected to attend, chose not to accompany her husband to a harvest festival service at Accra Ridge Church in the capital city.

On his first visit to the Gambia, Prince Charles will on Thursday visit the Medical Research Council in Banjul, a center specializing in the fight against malaria.
