  • The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall recently embarked on a whirlwind tour of the Caribbean.
  • From making their own mojitos to showing their silly sides by posing with statues, the couple proved they’re still young at heart.
  • From Barbados to Cuba, here are the best photos from the pair’s royal visit.

Prince Charles and Camilla recently took a 12-day tour of the Caribbean, hitting five Commonweath countries and becoming the first royals to make an official visit to Cuba – but this trip, filled with mojito masterclasses and statue photo-ops, was unlike any other royal visit.

The pair, who are 70 and 71 respectively, proved they’re still young at heart as they sipped and even boxed their way through the trip, which involved a celebration with Lionel Richie and plenty of rum.

Royal etiquette expert Grant Harrold recently told INSIDER that it’s frowned upon for members of the public to touch the royals. The only exception would be if it was a handshake, and if it was the royal who initiated it.
