(10 Nov 2016) Britain's Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, went shopping in a traditional Arabic souk in Bahrain's capital Manama on Thursday.
The royals started their day with a visit to the Old Post Office Museum, where they viewed an exhibition of historic stamps, before walking through Manama Souk and stopping at stalls showcasing traditional crafts.
The Prince and Duchess walked inside a local shop where they bought nesting dolls and a cushion.
The souk stands in Manama's old bazaar area and is located between the old parts of the city and the Central Business District.
Later, Charles and Camilla visited the Krishna Temple, the oldest Hindu temple in Bahrain.
There, the royals met with Muslim, Christian, Jewish, and Hindu community members.
Bahraini Jews, Christians, and Muslims are all represented in Bahrain's parliament, the government and public sector.
Before leaving the temple, Charles spoke to people from the Migrant Workers' Protection Society.
The organisation helps migrant workers and protects their human rights in accordance with international standards.
Charles then met with Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, on his private island.
The day's programme also included a meeting with Jameel bin Mohammad Ali Humaidan, the Minister of Labour and Social Development, and a visit to Al Fateh Grand Mosque.
The Prince of Wales is on the last leg of his three-nation gulf tour, having already visited Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
