During the second full day of their visit to Jordan, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall visit the Roman ruins at Jeresh and a refugee camp which is home to 1,500 people escaping the conflict in neighbouring Syria.
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are on a three-day tour of the Middle East. They did a spot of sight-seeing at the Roman ruins in Jeresh on the second full day of their visit to Jordan.
Prince Charles shared a joke with members of a traditional Jordanian troupe who poured him a cup of tea.
They spent the morning visiting Syrian refugees in the King Abdullah camp in the north of the country.
The royal couple described the situation as "heartbreaking" and the prince said many of the children had been "traumatised by the horrors of what they've witnessed".
The camp houses 1,500 people who have fled the fighting in neighbouring Syria. More than one million Syrians in total have been registered by the UN as refugees in countries including Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt.
The refugee camp, near Jordan's northern border with Syria, is one of the smaller camps in the country. Some 110,000 of those who have sought shelter in Jordan are living in the nearby camp of Zaatari.
Although families are living in cramped portable homes, they at least have access to food and education in Jordan.
The couple spoke to families about their ordeal, visited a craft skills training centre for women and children, and a nursery, where children sang songs to them.
