Charles is lord of the dance during Ghanaian welcome

Britain's Prince Charles Prince of Wales receives gifts during a welcome ceremony at the airport in Banjul Gambia,upon his arrival for an official visit

Prince of Wales, Prince Charles has observed and kept the Sabbath Day holy as he joined Christians to worship at the Accra Ridge Church as part of his five-day visit in Ghana.

Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall will be visiting Commonwealth countries in the region including Nigeria and Ghana, over a period of nine days.

"I am not a film star", the Queen said to then-UK Prime Minister Harold Macmillan after receiving backlash for announcing her visit to Ghana.

The Prince of Wales's last official visit was in March 1977.

"We know the relations between our two countries go back centuries", said President Akufo-Addo. So we are very happy to have you here.

Midterm Elections Seeing Huge Turnout
Polk County Supervisor of Elections Lori Edwards said many voters lack a full understanding of the amendments they are voting on. Early votes can be cast through Monday. "Everybody has been contacted and notified that there is a midterm election".

During his trip, the prince visited the British-established Medical Research Council (MRC) and The Gambia Armed Forces Training School in Fajara, after being treated to a state banquet at State House in Banjul. "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. As the Prince and Duchess made their way around the seating area to meet leaders, they were mobbed by local press and curious visitors desperate to catch a glimpse of the heir to the throne.

Despite the heat, Prince Charles looked his usual dapper self in a pale grey suit, complete with a lilac shirt, patterned tie and a smart pocket square.

Critics of the Commonwealth see it as an outdated relic of Britain's imperial past, while advocates say it gives small countries like Gambia a seat at the table with larger states, and has potential to improve life for its 2.4 billion residents.

The tour will celebrate the U.K.'s dynamic, forward-looking partnership with these Commonwealth nations on a range of shared priorities.
