Prince goes penguin spotting in Falklands
A moment of light relief as the prince poses with penguins
The Prince of Wales has spent the last day of his trip to the Falkland Islands observing local wildlife.
It was a light-hearted moment on a sombre trip which has been designed to bring about reconciliation between Argentina and Britain over continuing tension over the Falkland Islands.
Prince Charles flew into the British territory on Saturday from Uruguay after a relatively low-key visit following political protests in the Argentine capital Buenos Aires.
On Sunday, the Prince laid a wreath at the Goose Green regimental memorial to British servicemen who died in the 1982 war against Argentina.
Once more, he will lay a wreath, this time at the British military cemetery, overlooking San Carlos Water, where 15 servicemen were laid to rest.
As Colonel-in-Chief of the Welsh Guards, Prince Charles will also lay a wreath at the Welsh Guards Memorial in Fitzroy Cove where the landing craft Sir Galahad was bombed in an air attack that cost 50 British lives.
Altogether, 258 British lives were lost and more than 650 Argentinians died.
10,000 Argentine troops were taken prisoner.
The Prince will also visit the Falkland Islands Community School, in the capital Stanley.
He will then be shown around the Falklands' agriculture department, where the emphasis is on organic farming and sustainability both of which the Prince advocates, and the Dorada fisheries patrol vessel.
Before flying back to Britain, the Prince will pay a private visit to Mount Longdon above Stanley, scene of one of the last battles of the conflict.
The Falkland islanders have given the prince a warm welcome and several councillors have said they hoped his visit might be a precursor to one by the Queen - however, a BBC correspondent says this is unlikely to happen.
