The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall had a golden ticket to visit a chocolate factory in Grenada as part of their 12-day Caribbean tour.

As part of their visit to the region the couple met some of the country's world-famous chocolatiers, innovative spice producers and will later learn about projects to improve stewardship of the Caribbean sea.

The couple then visited a chocolate factory on the island, learning how the business is thriving and sampling local chocolate bars and cocoa tea, a traditional chocolate beverage.

Charles and his wife were given a colossal hamper full of goodies to mark their visit to House of Chocolate - and of course drew comparisons to the classic film.

During the visit, Charles eyed up the chocolate liqueurs and joked: "I might have to try some of that on the way back!"

Grenada is known as the spice island and the prince and the duchess will later visit an exhibition and hear how innovative producers are finding new uses for spices in teas, soaps and cosmetics.

Charles will then attend a blue economy roundtable and join the discussion which will hear from participants about their plans for better stewardship of the waters of the Caribbean.

The prince and his wife have already visited St Lucia, Barbados, St Kitts and Nevis and St Vincent and the Grenadines during a busy tour at the request of the British Government which is aimed at strengthening ties with the Commonwealth nations.
