Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, got into the groove while touring Jamaica Wednesday. Outside the old home of late reggae legend Bob Marley, the pair beat the bongos as part of a local drum session.

Currently on a five-island Caribbean visit to promote environmental protection, the royals also toured Marley’s home-turned-museum with his widow, Rita, and sons Robert and Rohan.

Earlier in the day, Charles planted a seedling in Rose Town, where his Foundation for the Built Environment is supporting revitalization projects. Their visit drew a crowd of hundreds, and local resident Dale Bent said, “It’s quite a spectacle.”
