Britain's Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have attended a dubar - a traditional celebration of leaders - as part of their visit to Ghana.

The heir to the British throne and his wife, Camilla, arrived in the west African country's capital, Accra, on Friday night and flew into Kumasi International Airport on Sunday.

Children lined the streets waving miniature Ghanaian and UK flags to welcome them. Charles said returning to Kumasi brought back fond memories of time he spent in the city 41 years ago.
