The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Tuesday welcomed Princess Anne, the daughter of Queen Elizabeth II, to the Flagstaff House in Accra.
Princess Anne is on a two-day visit to Ghana to celebrate the unique friendship between the UK and Ghana at a time that Ghana is observing its 60th independence anniversary.
President Akufo-Addo and the Princess discussed how to strengthen bilateral ties between Ghana and the UK.
The Princess said the UK was interested in helping to improve access to education for Ghanaian children. Princess Ann also presented the president with a gift she brought from the UK.
As part of her visit, the princess will meet a number of dignitaries, including the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and former President JA Kufuor. She will also undertake a wide-ranging programme that builds on her previous visits in 1998 and 2011, with a focus on empowering women who act as role models for others, exploring the importance of support for girls, female education and entrepreneurs in delivering Ghana’s future.
