Let me make one thing clear, I am not stalking any of Britain’s royal family, and I’m not a royal family gossip monger. However, I read Yahoo! News, and I can’t help but notice when article after article on Charles and Camilla’s tour through the Caribbean keeps popping up.
At first I was intrigued. Are they in their swimsuits sunning on a beach?
The thought of Camilla in a swimsuit was not thrilling (or Charles for that matter). I admit my curiosity reached an all-time high when it said they were in Jamaica, St Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago. Why those islands, as opposed to say some fancy private one or even a posher Caribbean island selection, and what are they doing there?

They’re apparently doing a lot of royal ambassadorish cultural things. For instance, in Jamaica they visited the museum dedicated to Bob Marley, where they listened to some reggae tunes performed by a group of Rastafarian drummers, and they also tried their hand at drumming along.
In Trinidad they visited the oldest nature park in the West Indies, the Asa Wright Nature Center. In St Lucia, the biggest news was that Camilla wore a bright purple dress. It must be a bummer to not get to wear shorts on the royal tour, I hope back at the resort they are chilling out in a nice frayed tee and some cutoffs sipping planters punches.
So all in all, if you leave out having to wear a suit everyday and the official meetings about drug trafficking and crime, it sounds like a nice trip itinerary. And frankly, a pretty inexpensive one too. Though Charles and Camilla are traveling via luxury yacht, I am sure there’s a cheaper way to travel between these islands if one were so inclined. And all the things they did? You can book all those on Viator, at a guaranteed lowest price. The only thing we don’t sell is the red carpet (you’ll just feel like its there).
