The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, have arrived The Gambia on the first stop of their tour of West Africa.
The royal couple had met with creatives from the continent in preparation of the tour last week.
They were greeted at the Banjul International airport by the Gambian President, Adama Barrow.
They were welcomed with a cultural performance, after which they attended a reception with representatives from the Chevening and Commonwealth Scholarships Alumni at the Coco Ocean hotel.
Speaking at the reception, Prince Charles shared that he and his wife still intend to visit Nigeria and Ghana. He said:
“As my wife and I prepare to embark on our upcoming tour of The Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria, I did just want to take this opportunity to send you all our special greetings and to say just how much we are looking forward to meeting so many of you.”
