The couple later met with Prime Minister of Belize Johnny Briceno and wife Rossana Briceno

Following touch down, the couple headed off to meet with prime minister Johnny Briceno.

"It's lovely to be here," William told him and his wife upon arrival.

"Thanking you so much," the Prime Minister replied, adding: "We're so happy you're here!"

"There were lots of questions in the car," said Kate, laughing, and clearly referring to William.

The Prime Minister and his wife then invited Kate and William to sit in a lounge area in his office building which overlooks the ocean.

"It's such a lovely view," said Kate.

The tour is marking the Queen's Platinum Jubilee and highlights of the visit will see the couple renew their friendly sporting rivalry when they take to the waters for a sailing regatta in the Bahamas in honour of the monarch’s 70-year reign.
