Someone, tell me what are Prince Charles and Camilla going to do with the yak?

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla express thanks for their gift in the remote Karakoram mountain range. Charles and Camilla were presented with a yak by villagers on the last day of their trip to Pakistan.

Thank you to all, for sending links and pics from the last day of the visit of TRH in Pakistan.
I think the Royal Couple had a nice and successful trip.
I agree Hornsen, the pic where Charles takes Camillas´ hand, when they leave the plane is so cute. Our Prince is a real gentleman!
To see the loving and affectionate gestures of Charles&Camilla during their trip makes me smile a lot. I love it to see them so happy together!

They give milk, I once had yak cheese pizza, it was really good. yak cheese is very flavourful. (It was in Tibet)

I love the pictures from the last day. The scenery is beautiful, they both look like they are having a wonderful time.

Is that a cosy fit, Camilla?

Thank you everyone who posted pics of the Pakistan tour. They've been wonderful. I feel I was there with the royal couple.

I'm a little disappointed I didn't get to vicariously enjoy the events where Camilla wore the Farah Leghari outfits though. I wonder if we're going to see pics of them?

It is a little known fact! I thought he could make omelettes using the eggs from his hens at the bottom of the garden and a little of the Yak milk, or some of the cheese (made from the milk).

Thumbs down

Scowls, shoves and security concerns mar a royal passage to Pakistan

Rapid rescheduling after madrasa raid made journey by Charles and Camilla largely irrelevant

The yak looks so beautiful. I like the color of it. I used to see a yak when a visit a place near Tibet. But I am too afraid to touch it and how brave TRH are! thanks all for the coverage of the trip and I learnt some knowlegde about the country through reading these news.
