‘Will Gets the Giggles at Ancient Mayan Ruins’
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed deep into the jungle for the second full day of their Caribbean tour.
Dressed in casual clothes and sunglasses, Will and Kate visited ancient Mayan ruins at an archaeological site in western Belize, close to the border with Guatemala.
As they climbed the 43m-tall, 3000-year-old, Caracol, or “sky palace”, Archaeologist Allan Moore told them its history.
It would have once been the centre of a community of around 200,000 people, and yet it was only re-discovered by an explorer in 1937.
The Duke got the giggles when he realised the photographers, who were surrounding them from all angles, would be in each other’s shots. “We’ve got one [group] one side and another the other,” he laughed. “You are in each other’s photographs.”
After visiting the archaeological site, Will and Kate remained in the jungle, to meet with the BATSUB (British Army Training Support Unit), which gives tropical environment training to British troops and international partners.
The Palace has said it was “a trip down memory lane” for the Duke spent some time with the unit, under the guidance of the Welsh Guards, during his gap year between Eton College and St. Andrew’s University.
