The Prince of Wales looked suitably cool in the Caribbean sunshine today, as the royal donned a pair of sunglasses and a light white suit for his arrival in St Vincent and the Grenadines.

The royals arrived at Argyle International Airport to kick off their visit and received a very enthusiastic welcome from well-wishers on the tarmac.

Prince Charles, 70, and Camilla, 71, are currently on a 12-day tour of the Caribbean, and were greeted by school children as they arrived on the island.

Many of the pupils waved Union Jacks alongside the flag of the island.

The royals have already visited St Lucia and Bridgetown on their tour, which will also take in an historic trip to Cuba later this month – the first by a member of the British royal family.

Waiting to meet the couple at the bottom of the steps of the RAF Voyager ministerial jet was the country’s Governor General Sir Frederick Ballantyne, the Queen’s representative in the country.

Nearby was the Commonwealth nation’s prime minister Ralph Gonsalves – known as Comrade Ralph to many in his country.

On Monday the couple enjoyed some downtime on a Barbados beach as they made the most of a day off in the sun between official engagements.

Later, the Prince of Wales visited a conservation project at the Prospect Brighton Mangrove Park.

The royal unveiled an information board in the park.

Charles went on to meet with marine cadets and graduates of the Youth Development Summer Programme.

During their tour, Charles and Camilla will also visit St Kitts and Nevis, Grenada and the Cayman Islands.

Meanwhile, Camilla Duchess Of Cornwall was snapped drinking passionfruit rum while visiting St Vincent and The Grenadines Community College.

The royal, who was still carrying her trusty parasol, grinned from ear to ear as she drank a small shot of the liquor.

She posed for photographs with students of the college, who performed and danced for the Duchess in intricate costume.

She was greeted by a dance presentation by the La Gracia Dance Company and Arabesque Dance Company at St Vincent and The Grenadines Community College.
