Funeral Of Queen Elizabeth II: Akufo-Addo Spotted In London



President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is in London for the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

The president, accompanied by First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo, is believed to have left Accra on Sunday to join other world leaders for the event.

Even though no official communication of his departure from Accra has been made, in a Reuters video in which Akufo-Addo and the First Lady arrive for the a state reception in honour of the late monarch.

It was widely expected that he will travel having been listed as one of the invited leaders of the Commonwealth.

Last week, after signing the book of condolence at the British High Commission in Accra, Akufo-Addo announced that he had intentions of travelling to London for the funeral.

“I intend to go to London for the funeral, I don’t know whether you have anything particular to tell me about that?” he asked High Commissioner Harriet Thompson.

To which she responded: “The invitations have been sent, s they will be with your High Commission in London. They were sent over the weekend and we’ll make sure the arrangement works smoothly between your team there and our team here.”

After signing the condolence book, President Akufo-Addo also sent his well wishes to the new monarch, King Charles II.

“Let me take the opportunity to also wish the King the best of luck with his tenure. He has been here with us a few occasions, he is a good friend and I am confident that he will do a very good job in her succession,” he stressed.
