And it's not the first time, we've seen some of Charles' smooth moves on their nine-day royal tour.

Earlier this week, Camilla was credited with bringing the "sparkle" back to Prince Charles' eye in an intimate magazine article, which gave an inside glimpse at the couple's marriage like never before.

The heir to the throne made the remarks while he and his wife Camilla were on the fourth day of their trip to Ghana as part of their tour of West Africa.

A source added there were no known specific threats to the Prince's safety, with "additional security precautions relating to recent clashes".

The Commission says the visit is at the request and on behalf of the United Kingdom government. During their visit, Their Royal Highnesses will undertake a series of engagements in Abuja and Lagos where they will have the opportunity to interact with a cross-section of Nigerians from Traditional Leaders to those in business, the arts, fashion, the armed forces and the charitable sector.

Clashes between the mostly Muslim nomadic cattle herders and Christian farmers, usually over land and grazing rights, have escalated into deadly violence which has killed thousands over the a year ago.

The Foreign Office spokesperson said: "We've arranged an interesting and engaging programme on Thursday in Abuja, which will include showcasing alternative livelihoods focusing on poultry and Acha supergrain, water aid and a peacebuilding discussion with youth peace ambassadors".

Jos, the Plateau state capital of about one million people, is nestled in the hills of central Nigeria and has frequently been the scene of violence.

The duchess also stopped by the Ghana International School to highlight the Commonwealth Essay Competition prize, an international writing competition that the Royal Commonwealth Society has managed since 1883.

Charles said: "In such an uncertain and changing world, none of us can know what kind of a planet our grandchildren, and great grandchildren, will inhabit, but the Commonwealth, it seems to me, offers us a vital mechanism to help ensure that it is not poisoned and polluted and that its vitality is not compromised".

Prince Charles says Britain also has a role to play to "robustly promote and defend the values which today make it incomprehensible for most of us that human beings could ever treat each other with such utter inhumanity" referring to the slave trade.
