The black and white hats, made from woven palm leaves, are called Vueltiao and are worn by peasants and cattle ranchers from the coast.

Charles and Camilla were visiting a gold museum showcasing fabulous treasures from the Latin American nation's early history.

Queen to open new Jaguar plant in Wolverhampton

A new Jaguar plant will be officially opened by the Queen later this morning and is expected to create 1400 jobs in Wolverhampton.

The £500 million engine manufacturing centre will cover three counties - Wolverhampton, South Staffordshire, and Staffordshire.

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) said the plant opening was a "seminal" moment in their history, as it was the first time they had built engines in house "in a generation".

JLR is known to have strong links with the monarchy - both Jaguar and Land Rover have held Royal Warrants since 1951. A Royal Warrant is awarded when a manufacturer has counted the royal family as customers for at least five years.

Last month JLR sponsored the Invictus Games, the sports event for sick and injured service personnel championed by Prince Harry.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have begun a nine-day visit to Colombia and Mexico.

On arrival in Colombia's capital Bogota yesterday, Camilla was presented with the gift of a snakeskin handbag by Mario Hernandez, the founder of the South American luxury fashion brand that bears his name.

Hernandez and his wife said they had also created a "casual" handbag for the Duchess of Cambridge that they hope Camilla will take back to the UK for Kate.

The prince and duchess' deputy private secretary Simon Martin said that the pair's visit will tackle areas including supporting victims of domestic and sexual violence, defence links and the fight against drugs and crime.
