Author Robert Jobson's new biography of Prince Charles is claiming the heir to the British throne "desperately" wanted to get out of his own royal wedding to Diana.

The duchess has worn the stunning accessories on a number of formal occasions, including to a dinner on the royal tour of France and Greece earlier this year.

Britain's Prince Charles and his wife Camilla landed Wednesday in The Gambia for the first leg of a week-long African tour aimed at strengthening ties with Commonwealth nations. They will also visit Ghana and Nigeria while they are there.

The Duchess of Cornwall's lovely earrings were on display as she enjoyed a drinks reception ahead of the meal.

Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar also denounced the assassination and sought a report from the Inspector General Punjab Police. The religious scholar was the founder of the Haqqania seminary, where dozens of Afghan leaders have received their education.

The Prince of Wales congratulated The Gambia for turning its back on "autocratic" rule at home and returning to the Commonwealth fold in February, after the country's exiled authoritarian former leader Yahya Jammeh fled the country previous year.

Britain's Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, have arrived in Gambia for a three-day visit.

The royal added that The Gambia was 'turning its back on 20 years of autocratic rule in order to embrace a new beginning'. In the country, the pair will attend joint engagements as well as separating for solo ones, with the Duchess visiting to a school to meet young people aspiring to enter The Queen's Commonwealth Essay Competition, and the Prince of Wales heading to see the work of the Medical Research Centre, which is a faculty of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

The royal couple will spend nine days in The Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria, first celebrating The Gambia's return into the Commonwealth in February. He and Bowles will also visit the Gambian Armed Forces Training Center, where troops are trained for their role in the United Nations.
