Camilla was all smiles as she landed in St Vincent and the Grenadines with husband Prince Charles as part of their royal tour of the Caribbean on Wednesday.

The Duchess of Cornwall looked lovely in a pale pink kaftan style top which she matched perfectly with a pair of white pants for the second day of the tour.

With an umbrella in hand to shade her from the hot Caribbean weather, the 71-year-old even enjoyed a sip of passionfruit rum provided to her by excited locals.

The Duke and Duchess were met at the airport by a Guard of Honour and greeted by the Governor General, Sir Frederick Ballantyne and the country’s Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves.

Charles and Camilla also took some time out to say a quick hello to local school children and residents who gathered eagerly to capture a glimpse of the royal couple.

After receiving a warm welcome into the country, the pair headed to The Grenadines Community College with its director Nigel Scott.

Here the two mingled with school children, enjoying a chat before meeting female entrepreneurs for a roundtable on domestic violence.

It has been a busy couple of days for Charles and Camilla who the day before joined singing superstar Lionel Richie for a special meeting in Barbados to discuss the importance of supporting young people in need.

The three friends spoke about Charles’s charity the Prince’s Trust and Lionel gave a touching speech on the progress young people in Barbados thanks to help from the charity.

The Prince’s Trust was first created in 1967 after the royal completed his duty in the navy as a way to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people in the United Kingdom. It has since grown to support those across the world suffering with homelessness and mental health issues through the development of free programs.

Lionel, who is first Global Ambassador and Chairman for the Global Ambassador Group for the charity, spoke openly about the changes the country has seen since being involved with the Prince’s Trust.

“The two things I heard were self-esteem and self confidence,” he explained in a video shared on the Clarence House Twitter page after visiting children in the country. “The fact that they (young people) can now believe in themselves is a huge step forward and I was so proud to see them, they were actually excited to be there and telling their stories.

“Our best ambassadors are the kids, because once they realise ‘I can leave home, I can go to this place, go to this group and be inspired to do excellence’ is the best thing ever. And of course this island is now infected with that kind of attitude, I just think it’s going to be brilliant.”

He added: “I am going to come back here myself and see them again because they inspired me”.
