Queen Elizabeth appoints Ghanaian first black equerry in British history


The Queen has picked a Ghanaian-born Household Cavalry officer as the first black man to hold the role of equerry, one of the most important positions in the royal household.

It is understood Major Nana Kofi Twumasi-Ankrah will be the royal household’s first black equerry, a role which requires him to support the monarch at official engagements such as regional visits and audiences at Buckingham Palace.


The Sunday Times said Maj Twumasi-Ankrah, a 38-year-old Afghanistan veteran known as TA to his friends, moved to the UK from Ghana with his parents in 1982 and studied at Queen Mary University of London and the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst.

He will start the role later this year, the paper said.

The Queen’s Equerry is an officer from one of the armed services, who takes on the role for three years.
