Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are visiting the Saudi Arabia's Shura Council as part of their nine-day tour of the Middle East.

The Duchess has been meeting some of the first female members of the body which advises the government on new legislation.

In January, Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah appointed women to a fifth of the 150 seats in the Council for the first time.

Prince Charles and Camilla will also pay visits to a women's university and a business event today.
