Prince Charles, Princess Camilla arrive Nigeria

Prince of Wales tastes a sample as he tours a Cocoa Farm

"There is, it seems to me, tremendous potential for the Commonwealth to share best practice and coordinate its response to these kind of disasters" Prince Charles said.

"The appalling atrocity of the slave trade and the unimaginable suffering it caused left an indelible stain on the history of the world".

He went on to speak to Harry and Meghan's official wedding photographer, who described Charles and Camilla as like "a young couple in love", while Camilla's nephew even contributed and recalled their "genuine, deep-down affection and love", painting a picture of a couple very much in love.

Britain's Prince Charles (L) stands with the Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi, during his meeting with traditional leaders at the British High Commission residence in Abuja on November 6, 2018. "We have a shared responsibility to ensure that the abject horror of slavery is never forgotten, that we abhor the existence of modern slavery".

Built in 1661, the castle was a principal holding cell for enslaved Africans during the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

Prince Charles had earlier scheduled a trip to Jos on the final day of his royal tour of West Africa, to undertake engagements including a discussion about peacebuilding and conflict resolution, but he would not be going based on the advice of the Foreign Office, reports UK Telegraph.

The castle later became the seat of the Ghanaian government after the country's independence from Britain in 1957.

The event was attended by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, former Presidents Jerry John Rawlings, John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama, and a host of dignitaries and people from various walks of life.

On Tuesday, Charles and Camilla arrived in Nigeria, where President Muhammadu Buhari welcomed them at the Presidential Villa.

This choice of gift makes a lot of sense, considering Prince Charles is a long time supporter of environmental conservation.

"Was quite an honor to be invited to the Grand Reception in honor of Thier Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall in Ghana to mark His Royal Highness' 70th Birthday".
