During a March 23, 2022, visit to beloved author C.S. Lewis's childhood home in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the couple crossed paths with all sorts of fantastical beasts, a jaunty piper and even a very tall fairy. Not bad for a royal day's work!

THEY GO INCOGNITO

No name tag, no problem! Though attendees at Royal Ascot are typically required to wear name badges, Charles (with a bit of a mischievous look on his face) and Camilla forewent the accessory. Consider it a perk of being the future king!

...with vegetables! Later on at the South of England Show, actor Callum Arnott yelled at Camilla, "I'm wearing my thigh high rubber for you today. Knight me, can you knight me please!" She obliged — with a saber-like leek to help!

When in New Zealand! Just like Prince William and Princess Kate before them, Charles and Camilla sampled some of the local wines in Nelson, New Zealand.

Or at least, we hope they're joking! Camilla sported a cheeky grin while brandishing a hand-forged knife at her husband. HIs response? "Behave yourself!"

Whether they're at home in Britain or thousands of miles away in New Zealand, Charles and Camilla are always befriending those in their path — including this itty-bitty iguana.

They may be royals, but Charles and Camilla aren't afraid of muddy work. During a visit to Adelaide, New Zealand, Prince Charles picked up his spade and went to work at a sustainable urban development.

In New Zealand, surfing is as natural as breathing. So it only made sense that Charles would hobnob with a few of the country's wave-riders — even if he wasn't exactly dressed for the sport.

He may have forgotten to pack his swimsuit, but Charles — and Camilla — embraced New Zealand fashions in other ways, like with these furry capes. Très chic.

Walking across a bridge made entirely out of rope? It's no big for Prince Charles, despite the fact that it's much less sturdy than the wine-powered car he often uses for transport.

THEY'RE (NEARLY) ALWAYS UNFLAPPABLE

Charles and Camilla spend a lot of time with animals (whether it's cows, dogs or elephants) and 10 years into their marriage, there isn't much that will shock them. But even a royal is allowed to freak out a bit when something like this flaps its wings nearby.

THEY EMBRACE THEIR ARTISTIC SIDE

While on a royal visit (this one, to Gloucester, England), Prince Charles likes to get in the thick of it — and sometimes, that means pulling out a paintbrush. Here, he adds the finishing touches to a sign at the Gloucester Services Farm Shop.

THEY BEFRIEND SEA CREATURES

Elephants, dragons, lobsters and starfish, oh my! Prince Charles greeted (a massive version of) the latter two during a visit to Fistral Beach in Newquay, England, for Ocean Plastics Awareness Day.

Elephants aren't the only creatures that Charles and Camilla have come across throughout their travels – they've seen dragons, too! During a visit to the Isles of Scilly, the royal couple took in a children's rendition of St. George and the Dragon. Even better, the play had a sentimental touch for the duo: The story was the inspiration for grandson Prince George's commemorative birthday coin.

… and sip them, too! The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall couldn't resist sampling the local brew during a visit to the Raven Inn Pub in Llanarmon-Yn-Lal, Wales, in July 2018.

When it comes to sports, Charles is most comfortable on the polo field, and from the looks of this shot, it seems that Camilla is the darts champion in the royal family. The two played a round during a visit to the Raven Inn Pub in Wales in July 2018.

When in Wales, do as the Welsh do. The couple toured the Village Bakery in Wrexham in July 2015 and stepped up to the griddle to do a little baking of their own. Here, the two flip Welsh Cakes, a classic treat in the country — we hope they got to try one (of the many!) later on.

This four-legged friend may not be one of the Queen's beloved corgis, but that didn't stop Charles and Camilla from greeting the pup with a smile while chatting with locals in Wales in July 2018.

Since Charles and Camilla have ridden in a rickshaw themselves, a stop at the Elephant Family's Royal Rickshaw Auction in London — where they became acquainted with this guy — was obviously a must.

In June 2015, Camilla and Charles brought her three rescue Jack Russells to a dog show at Dumfries House in Scotland. Beth even won first prize in the agility contest!

THEY TASTE-TEST BEER

They may be two of the royal family's most active members (the prince alone carried out 533 engagements in 2017!), but Charles and Camilla still know how to have fun. Case in point: The two visited The Bell pub in Essex in early 2014 to learn about the arts activities that take place there. Oh, and they sampled a pint of their finest brews.

THEY DO THEIR DUTY, OF COURSE

As next in line to the throne, Prince Charles takes his royal duties seriously (and, clearly, so does his wife). The two solemnly listened to Queen Elizabeth's speech at the opening of parliament in June 2014.

It's not all motorcades and Rolls-Royces for this royal couple: During the March London Travels to My Elephant rickshaw race, aimed at preventing the extinction of Asian elephants, the couple got into a rickshaw. The move was in solidarity with the number of other participants riding rickshaws 500 kilometers across India to exhibit the danger facing Asian elephants.

With all those royal engagements and tours taking up their schedule, Charles and Camilla have to find some time to just kick back and relax — even if it's only for a few minutes. So the two rested their legs after arriving in Halifax, Nova Scotia, for a royal tour back in May 2014.

Hey now, did you two plan this? The pair sported matching striped hats during their visit to Colombia in October 2014.

Few things are more inherently British than a herd of sheep and the monarchy. The March Lamb National had both: A sheep race with Charles and Camilla as spectators.

When you travel the world as often as Charles and Camilla do, you're going to want a few reminders of home. So even when they were all the way over in Mexico, the couple made sure to stop by the world's only museum dedicated to cornish pasty, a classic British dish.

THEY CELEBRATE THE CHINESE NEW YEAR

The world-traveling couple is always embracing other cultures, even when they're at home. In February, Charles and Camilla headed over to London's Chinatown neighborhood to hang out with some dragons in honor of the Chinese New Year. Maybe next time they'll come see the royals on their own turf — they'd be right at home at Clarence House.

Throughout their marriage, Charles and Camilla have gone on a number of international royal tours, exposing them to a variety of cultures. In October 2017, Charles got a peek at traditional Colombian garb at the Organic and Urban Sustainability Fair in Bogota. It was a fitting event for the Prince of Wales to attend — he's a been a longtime proponent of environmental causes and sustainability.
