The Prince of Wales is expected to acknowledge the slavery past of an historic African fort when he visits the continent with the Duchess of Cornwall.

Clarence House has announced Charles and Camilla are to tour the Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria during October and November, countries in a region synonymous with the slave trade.

The couple’s trip comes hard on the heels of the Prime Minister’s high-profile visit to the continent just a few weeks ago.
