Prince Harry and Megan could be invited on a fresh unofficial royal tour of another Commonwealth country, according to sources.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in talks to visit Ghana after a successful three-day tour of Nigeria.

The West African country’s officials and leading icons are keen for Harry and Meghan to fly to Accra, the capital of Ghana.

Charles and Camilla visited Ghana during a four-day royal tour in 2018 where they were joined by the King’s brother, Prince Edward.

A source said: “There is already a lot of talk and excitement in Ghana, everyone is so keen for Harry and Meghan to come and experience the great culture and warmth.

“Several top names have already visited Ghana in recent years from Ed Sheeran, Naomi Campbell and One Direction’s Liam Payne.

“Idris Elba, who DJ’d at Harry and Meghan’s wedding is a regular too, he is part-Ghanaian and loves spending time ‘back home.’”

The source told The Daily Mirror: “Harry certainly won’t be short of people to show him around and they will certainly roll out the red carpet for him, drafting in some of the finest Afro-beats performers to welcome him and his family.

“So perhaps it is only a matter of time before Harry and Meghan come out, and sample the famous jollof rice!”

The invite comes after the duke and duchess’s recent three-day trip to Nigeria, after being invited by the country’s highest-ranking military official, Christopher Musa.

Following the trip, Prince Harry told People that he hoped there were more visits like this in the future.

The prince said: “It is hugely important for us to meet directly with people, supporting our causes and listening, in order to bring about solutions, support and positive change.

"Whether it's the Archewell Foundation, Invictus or any of our other causes, there will always be reasons to meet the people at the heart of our work."

Harry and Meghan travelled to Nigeria largely to promote their Archewell Foundation’s mental health initiatives for young people and to promote the Invictus Games.

The duke continued: “I’m so happy with the growth of Invictus and to include Nigeria.

“You know what Africa means to me over the years. It is a very, very special place, and to be able to include Nigeria now [in Invictus], I’m very happy.”
