Prince Charles and Camilla’s historic trip to Cuba will take place from Sunday 24 March. The first ever visit to the state by a British Royal will take in Havana and the island’s south coast. The @foreignoffice says it won’t stop UK’s ‘open and frank’ dialogue on human rights.

Roya Nikkhah @RoyaNikkhah 10m10 minutes ago
Charles and Camilla will be welcomed by Cuba's president, but Clarence House says they have no plans to meet with Raul Castro. Their visit will take in the classic cars, dance studios and boxing gyms of Havana, where Prince Charles will learn more about Cuba's organic farming.

Lizzie Robinson @LizzieITV 10m10 minutes ago
The President of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, will host an official dinner for the couple during their stay. They will also attend a wreath laying ceremony for the essayist and poet Jose Marti, visit one of the country’s leading dance studios and view British classic cars.


Charles and Camilla will be in Cuba from March 24th to 28th, flying home on/by the 29th.

Wonder if a (leased) "royal yacht' will be used like the last time they toured the Caribbeans.

This should be interesting. I think it has been about a decade since they have done an official tour of the region.

I doubt it, they got a lot of criticism for the yacht.

It’s going to be a difficult visit for Camilla. She really minds the heat and humidity.

I suspect she will spend a few days in the area before the start of the tour to acclimatise and work through her jet lag.

Well I live in Barbados. No idea that they were coming. But there are plenty British tourists here for cricket. Camilla better come prepared...it is HOT! They will be very sun tanned when they leave to go back to the UK.

Sounds like a very interesting tour.
Now I’m really curious to see where the Cambridges go on tour this year, since I was expecting them to finally go to the Caribbean.

I think it will be a tour in Africa, or perhaps, part of the M-E.

Do we know what time they are arriving? Which RR are going? Haven’t seen anything on twitter and only Chris Jackson on Instagram.

To begin the visit, The Prince is meeting with Prime Minister Allen Chastanet and Governor-General Sir Emmanuel Neville Cenac.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D14z3MlXcAIqLbP.jpg

Prince Charles is attending an event to celebrate 40 years of St Lucia’s independence.
A military parade involving police, members of the fire service and cadets kicks off the celebrations.

As much as I like following all royal tours, Charles and Camilla are tied with Harry and Meghan just about evenly. Both couples actively show that they're enjoying where they are and with what they are doing. That, to me, makes all the difference. I also have to admit that for a tour in a warm climate, I look forward to Camilla's outfits the most.

Great to see the first photos. Wonderful welcome and parade

Is Camilla not joining him in St Lucia??

I agree Osipi, I like her fashion in warmer countries.
