The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall have spent the night without electricity while on tour in Egypt.
Camilla uses a brightly coloured swat to keep away flies
The couple stayed in the Adrere Amellal Ecolodge on the edge of the Sahara, where beeswax candles and lanterns are used in place of electric lights.
The luxurious hotel in traditional houses built of mud and salt serves organic food, appropriate for a prince who champions natural farming methods.
Later, the royals braved heat and dust to visit the oasis town of Siwa.
Camilla sheltered under a parasol as she explored market stalls in the town, close to the border with Libya. One of the stall holders handed her a manasha - a brightly coloured swat to keep away the flies.
The royal couple are in Egypt as part of their second royal tour together, which will also include visits to Saudi Arabia and India.
