Prince Charles and Camilla enjoy romantic stroll on white sands of beautiful Grenada beach
Dame Cecile La Grenade, Grenada's Governor General greeted Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall after they landed in the capital St. George’s. While in Grenada, it wouldn't be right for the royal couple to not visit the famous beaches after a busy day.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall enjoyed their visit to the beach as they took a walk on the white sands. The royal couple visited the Grand Anse Beach and Camilla removed her wedges while Prince Charles kept his brogues all laced up, according to Daily Mail.
Their brief time for relaxation came after a jam-packed day filled with engagements that highlight the political, cultural and economic links between the Commonwealth country of Grenada and the UK. Camilla wore a light yellow Anna Valentine tunic and loose trousers.
She accessorized them with a pair of pearl earrings and shell-pink painted toes. The couple made their way to the Mount Cinnamon Resort where they were greeted by the holidaymakers.
This was Charles and Camilla's fifth stop on their tour of the Caribbean and they received a warm welcome. The royal couple is now in Grenada where they will get to know more about the local agriculture and the history of cocoa and spice that is produced on the island. They are on a 12-day tour of the region and will be visiting six countries in 12 days. They will also be undertaking 50 engagements even though they are both in their seventies.
They have already visited St Lucia, St Vincent, Barbados, St Kitts, and Nevis and will now be the first British royals to have a four-day visit in communist Cuba. According to Daily Mail, the Duchess of Cornwall even teased that the couple might even try to do some salsa.
This tour was requested by the British Government in order to strengthen and highlight diplomatic, political, economic and cultural ties in the country. And also as a validation of Prince Charles's confirmation last year as he will now take on the role as the Head of the Commonwealth from the Queen.
After they arrived at Grenada's Maurice Bishop International Airport, Prince Charles and Camilla were taken to St George's where the new parliament building is. Following that, they will attend a welcome ceremony and reception with the Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell. Prince Charles planted a tree at the Government House and visited the House of Chocolate with Camilla.
The royal couple also enjoyed the music of steel pan musicians along with dancers in the local spice market. They will also visit a booth that sells Nut-med which is a nutmeg-based pain relief cream.
While they were at a local handicraft, Prince Charles met the daughter of an old school friend and Camilla borrowed cash from aides to get a peacock clutch bag and a colorful shopper. Meanwhile, the Prince spoke to Lily Da Silva who was eight. She gave him a postcard and revealed that her father who is a journalist called Simon Lee was his a pupil along with the Prince at Gordonstoun and Prince Charles revealed that he remembered him.
The couple then visited the House of Chocolate and sampled some chocolate tea and Grenadian high-quality chocolate. They also tried some cocoa tea but Camilla did not like it much, whereas Prince Charles enjoyed it and finished Camilla's share as well. They were also given a bag of chocolate to take home for the Queen.
