Prince Charles & Wife Camilla Arrive in Cuba for First-Ever Official Royal Visit!

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are making history!

The 70-year-old Prince of Wales and his wife made their way off an RAF Voyager plane as they were greeted by Cuban officials in Havana, Cuba on Sunday afternoon, March 24.

Prince Charles and Camilla‘s visit to Cuba marks the first time members of the British royal family have made an official visit to the country. Queen Elizabeth has never made a state visit to Cuba, which came under Communist rule in 1959 by Fidel Castro.

During their trip, Prince Charles and Camilla will explore the cultural and academic connections between the people of the UK and Cuba, including key themes, such as the arts, youth entrepreneurship, heritage restoration and sustainable agriculture.

Within an hour of touching down in Havana, Prince Charles laid a wreath at the memorial of Cuba’s national hero, essayist and poet José Martí.
