Britain's Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, will fly into Banjul today for a three-day visit.
It’s the couple’s first trip to The Gambia.
The eyes of the British media will be on the country for the duration of the tour, during which the pair will meet with President Adama Barrow and his ministers in the State House.
The Royals will visit the Medical Research Council, Gambia Armed Forces Training School and St Therese’s Upper Basic School in Kanifing South.
According to the British High Commissioner in The Gambia, Sharon Wardle, the visit is an opportunity to celebrate The Gambia’s re-entering into the Commonwealth.
She also said it will be a truly historic moment for The Gambia-UK relations, saying The Gambia is the first Commonwealth country to be visited by Prince Charles since the Commonwealth Head of States Summit in London.
The couple will arrive at the Banjul International Airport at 6 PM.
