The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall ended their official tour of the Caribbean yesterday in the Cayman Islands, visiting all three islands.
The Prince opened a new swimming pool in Cayman Brac, which will be used by local schools for training and competitions and by members of the public, before travelling on to Little Cayman to hear about the work that the Central Caribbean Marine Institute is undertaking to discover solutions to declining ocean health.
The Prince joined a class of Year 6 pupils from Cayman International School for ‘Reefs Go Live’ – a live link-up to a dive team on the nearby reef. It uses virtual live experiences to connect students and the public to real-time coral reef activity.
The Prince then visited the Queen Elizabeth II Royal Botanic Park and heard about the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme, which works to conserve the critically endangered species.
Meanwhile, The Duchess visited Jasmine Villa Hospice, the first hospice of its kind in the Cayman Islands, and met students at Georgetown Primary School. HRH also met staff working at a domestic violence crisis centre and those who had been supported by the services.
In the evening, Their Royal Highnesses attended a cultural celebration at Pedro St James before departing for the UK. #RoyalVisitCayman
