Prince Charles and Camilla visit Cuba despite U.S. crackdown

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla arrived in Cuba on Sunday (March 24) as part of a Caribbean tour and lay a flower wreath at the Jose Marti Memorial in Havana's Revolution Square.

They are the first British royals to visit the Communist-run nation even as ally the United States seeks to isolate the country.

The royal couple were asked by the UK government to add Cuba to their tour of former and current British territories in hopes of boosting commercial relations and political influence.

The plans were made before the Trump administration intensified efforts this year to end what it views as Latin America's "troika of tyranny": the socialist governments of Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba.

It has warned foreign companies away from doing business with Cuba, continuing its reversal of Trump predecessor Barack Obama's detente with the island.

The visit will be welcomed on the island, which has seen a decline in high-profile visits since the likes of Pope Francis, then-U.S. President Obama and the Rolling Stones graced its shores just a few years ago.

The royal couple will dine with Cuba's new president, Miguel Diaz-Canel, who succeeded Raul Castro a year ago.

They first met last November on Prince Charles' 70th birthday, when the Cuban president was visiting London.

There are no plans for Charles to meet Raul Castro, who remains head of the Communist Party, though that could change, according to Britain's embassy.
