Prince Charles and Camilla have begun their nine-day tour of Africa.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall touched down at Banjul International Airport on Wednesday evening where they were greeted with a ceremonial welcome from dancers in colourful dress and a long line of dignitaries.

The couple were met on the red carpet by President of The Gambia, Adama Barrow, and one of his wives. An official ceremony was held in McCarthy Square in the Capital City of Banjul to welcome the royal couple. They also enjoyed a cultural performance at the Coco Ocean Hotel.
