Princess Anne Meets Nana

President Akufo-Addo welcoming Princess Anne

Princess Anne, daughter of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of England, yesterday paid a courtesy call on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Flagstaff House as part of her two-country visit to West Africa.

A number of issues bordering on the strengthening of bilateral ties between Ghana and England, and enhancing access to education for Ghanaian children, were discussed.

Princess Anne later laid a wreath at the Christiansburg War Cemetery at Osu at the start of her two-day visit to Ghana.

Princess Anne is the sponsor of the Varkey Foundation’s Making Ghanaian Girls Great – Ghana’s first interactive distance-learning project.

The princess will be engaged in a live interactive session with some of the school-children, who are beneficiaries of the programme.

She was at the British Council Hall in Accra Tuesday morning.

The Princess Royal’s visit will blend tradition and modernity, as she visits the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, who would hold a reception for the guests, including former President John Agyekum Kufuor, in Kumasi today.
