Well, pics are funny, but he seems to enjoy his time there and be in a really good mood.
I love those pics of him kitted out like the locals. I wonder if he was thinking about "Lawrence of Arabia".

Is there a reason Camilla didn't go? I thought spouses usually went on official state visits.
Camilla has commitments in the UK as she has her own engagements.

This isn't a 'State Visit' as it isn't between Heads of State so there is no requirement for the spouse to attend with their partner.
