The events in the UK, according to monarchical historian Teacher Sarfo Kantanka, will bolster ties between the two kingdoms and nations.

On Wednesday, the Asantehene departed Kumasi for the United Kingdom in order to attend King Charles III’s coronation.

It’s anticipated that royalty from all across the world will attend.
