The royals have a busy itinerary ahead of them, with stops in Jamaica and the Bahamas also planned as part of an eight-day visit to the region in order to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The Cambridges landed at 3pm local time to begin the eight-day tour. Both looked relaxed after the 11-hour flight, with Kate radiant in a royal blue outfit and her husband as dapper as ever in a smart grey suit.

On Sunday, the couple's first stop was at the Che'il chocolate farm in Hopkins, Belize.

The Duchess tried her hand at grinding nibs, broken-up cocoa beans, hard work that's usually performed by the women in rural communities.

The Duke then also had his turn at chocolate-making, much to his wife's delight! 

"The smell of the chocolate is amazing," she said. 

William even joked, "Do you take apprentices? Can I come and work for you? It's my kind of thing."

The couple’s eyes lit up when they saw the chocolate fountains ready for their arrival. 

They enjoyed dipping tortilla chips into the liquid chocolate and later tried hot chocolate, too. 

Mum-of-three Kate sweetly commented: "I think our children will be very jealous."
