Altars, cemetries and pasties: Prince Charles and Camilla's Mexican Day of the Dead

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall joined Mexico for the nation's famed Day of the Dead celebrations on Sunday. The royal couple clearly enjoyed the colourful religious festival, which includes fancy dress in skeletal costumes, known as Catrinas, and decorated altars for loved ones that have passed away. 

Charles and Camilla even tucked into some of their very own English traditions, enjoying a cup of tea and pasty, in Real del Monte, 60 miles north of Mexico City, an area nicknamed "Mexico's Little Cornwall" for its close ties to the West Country.
