Accra, Nov. 04, GNA – Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla have reignited long-standing relationship between the British and Asante people with a historic visit to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, at the Manhyia Palace, Kumasi, on Sunday, November 04, 2018.

This coincided with the ‘Akwasidae’, a sacred day on the Asante calendar.

The Prince is in Ghana as part of a working tour, to strengthen the Commonwealth ties and shared values.

The Prince of Wales’ last official visit to the country was in March 1977.

His historic journey this time is coming in the wake of the recent Commonwealth Heads’ of Government unanimous decision that the Prince should succeed Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, as the future Head of the Commonwealth.

Traditionally, the British and Asante people have enjoyed long-standing ties and this dates back to more than three centuries.

The Royal couple were treated to a full blast of the rich Asante culture.

Prince Charles, in a brief message, said his visit was a moment to celebrate the warm, enduring relationship and shared ambition for the Commonwealth.

He stressed the need for countries under the Commonwealth to continue to maintain closer ties to help advance the cause of humanity.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu noted that Ghana was currently working assiduously to bring down the high rate of poverty, illiteracy and disease.

He encourage the Prince to support the noble of cause of making life better for the people.
