The Prince of Wales who ended an official visit to The Gambia on Friday has made a vow toward the country's infrastructural development.Rounding off a three-day visit to the country, Prince Charles promised that the United Kingdom would become more involved in efforts to improve Gambia's fledgling infrastructure. "Some of them were happy, some of them not so happy". So many of our values are influenced by British traditions and institutional arrangements and a lot of the people who are living in your place are doing well; they are well treated. The Prince and The Duchess will then attend a traditional durbar or procession at the palace with the Asantehene and local chiefs.

After his visit to The Gambia, he is proceeding to Ghana.

Prince Charles and his delegation will leave Banjul for Accra today and from there, he would proceed to Nigeria. The waterfront was conceived by David Adjaye, the principal architect who crafted the design for Ghana's future national cathedral.

The explosive claims were revealed in "Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles", the latest book by self-styled royal author Tom Bower. The Prince will also meet with Ghanaian and worldwide business leaders to discuss sustainable practice in Ghana's cocoa industry.

Ahead of the trip, Prince Charles shared a message saying he was looking forward to "meeting so many of you".
