You'd think you were reading about The Rolling Stones or Queen or even Madonna. When one hears the word "tour," that's exactly what comes to mind. Well, now we add the monarchy to the list of rock star legends.

The Caribbean tour of Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, is under way, with the royal couple visiting the beaches of Barbados on their way to Cayman next week.

This past week, Prince Charles and Camilla arrived in the Caribbean, helping St. Lucia celebrate its 40th year of independence. Many local hoteliers were their to support the Royal Family and showed their enthusiasm in a meet n greet. 

But it was on his trip to Barbados that the 70-year-old Prince of Wales proved that "70 is the new 50" with the elder statesman revealing quite impressive physique while strolling on the beach. Yes, the Prince took his shirt off (like we all do!) when frolicking on the pearl white sandy shores of Barbados. 

Prince Charles wowed onlookers going shirtless and proved tabloid reports of a man obsessed with staying fit to be true. Sporting a muscular frame, it seems all the push-ups and stomach crunches The Prince does before bed has truly paid off. Why, Prince Charles may be the most fit Prince in the history of England! Charles even revealed that he asked the National Welsh Rugby team for training advice! (How fit does this man want to be!? Arnold Schwarzenegger watch out!) 

The Prince and Duchess also stopped off in St. Vincent and St. Kitts, with further visits planned to Grenada, Cuba and the Cayman Islands next week.

Plans were revealed for his trip to Grand Cayman. The Prince is scheduled to visit the blue iguanas at the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, which was opened by his mother in 1994, and participate in the opening of the Children’s Garden there. Governor Roper and members of the RCIPS Air Operations Unit who were deployed to help out in Caribbean islands in the aftermath of the 2017 hurricanes are expected to attend.

The Duchess of Cornwall will also have a busy day, visiting George Town Primary School for a cultural event, as well as attending the opening of the new Jasmine hospice centre.

The visit will be capped off with a reception hosted by Premier McLaughlin at Pedro St. James, where Prince Charles will Award Deputy Governor Franz Manderson with the MBE honour. The Royals will depart after the reception.

All in all, the Royals have put the Caribbean on the map once again as the hot topic destination for all the whole world to see.
