Camilla keeps her cool in all-white as she officially opens a hospice in the Cayman Islands

The Duchess of Cornwall visited Jasmine Villa Hospice in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands on Thursday. 

Keeping her cool in a coordinated white outfit, Camilla, 71, arrived solo as she officially opened the not-for-profit organisation.

The hospice is dedicated to providing professional, free of charge care to anyone in the community living with debilitating long-term or end-stage conditions. 

Embarking on the next step of their Carribean tour, Her Royal Highness received a warm welcome from the community and looked delighted as she was handed a bouquet of brightly-coloured flowers by a well-wisher. 

Meanwhile, the Prince of Wales arrived on the island of Cayman Brac to visit a swimming pool and attend a reception.

Jasmine relies entirely on donations from the Cayman community and the hospice is the first of its kind in the Cayman Islands. 

Camilla, who was accompanied by the Governor’s Wife, Lissie Roper, was met by Chris Duggan, Chair of the Board before she unveiled a plaque and cut a ribbon.

During her visit, Camilla learned about the newly installed artwork in the central hall, before having a short tour of the building.  

Shielding the sun from beating down on her head, the Duchess could be seen holding a chic white parasol as she engaged in conversation with fans that lined the streets, before meeting the staff that worked there.     

It was a busy day for the Duchess of Cornwall who also met school children during her visit to Georgetown Primary School

Following this, she met with a former shelter client who baked a birthday cake to celebrate TAYA lounge’s second birthday.

The Duchess also met with school children during her visit to Georgetown Primary School.

Looking smart in a blue and beige uniform, the youngsters lined the streets and waved flags for the royal arrival.   

Camilla then posed for a photograph with the school choir while holding another bouquet of flowers, before being presented with a gift of books.

It comes after a busy few weeks for the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, who left Cuba yesterday following a historic visit to the country.

They ended their visit with a glass of rum, audiences with the ambassador and a horse called Diane.

Both got behind the bar at private restaurant Havana and made a couple of the country’s famous rum-based mojitos for themselves, with Charles even helping press the sugar cane and produce the juice needed to make the drink.

Later Camilla met a horse as she visited an equine project, feeding the animal sugar after hearing how the mare’s calm temperament had resulted in her name being shortened from Dynamite to Diane.
