The Prince admitted playing the steel drums was much harder than he thought.




His Royal Highness talks over his music lesson with Calypso Super Blue.




Prince Charles waves goodbye and thanks the organisers after they gave him his own steel drum as a keepsake. He quipped: "It would make rather a good bird bath."




Prince Charles later saw Trinidad's carnival preparations in full swing.




However the Prince of Wales declined to join in with dance rehearsals.
