3 photos of the British Royals as they arrive in Ghana

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

Ahead of the visit, Prince Charles said he was delighted to be returning to Ghana which he first visited more than 40 years ago.

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.

The Prince of Wales and his wife have started their tour of West Africa in Gambia, which was re-admitted into the Commonwealth in February this year.

"So, too, can we commit ourselves, together, to addressing with all urgency some of the most pressing challenges facing our world, such as climate change, resource depletion, youth unemployment and rapid urbanisation, and to do so by harnessing the remarkable professional expertise and experience upon which the Commonwealth and her member states can draw".

"Please know that United Kingdom and the other members of the Commonwealth stand with you", Prince Charles said.

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".

-The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall have arrived in Accra to begin a five-day visit. President Adama Barrow and first lady Fatoumata Barrow greeted the royal couple on Wednesday, Oct. 31, along with Gambians who came out in throngs for their arrival. The last visit was by Princess Anne in 1990.

The third day of the royal visit to Ghana saw the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall welcomed in a "Durbar", a lively ceremony honouring chiefs with gifts and a meeting with the King of the Ashantis.

Born of British and French colonial rivalry in the 19th century and surrounded by Francophone Senegal, Gambia - a tourist haven and groundnut producer - won independence from Britain in 1965.

He refused to step down, but was forced out the following month after other West African countries intervened militarily.
