During their last engagement of the third day of their Caribbean tour, William and Kate attended a reception hosted by the Governor-General of Belize at the Maya ruins at Cahal Pech, near San Ignacio.

For her first glam look of the tour, Kate wore a metallic pink full-length dress from British label The Vampire’s Wife, which she paired with a traditional Maya embroidered handbag.

She also wore her hair in a sleek centre parting and wore a beautiful pair of statement earrings

During the reception, William gave a speech, where he said he was “thinking of those struggling in Ukraine” and added “we stand with them in solidarity”.

He also referred to his children George, Charlotte and Louis and explained: “Catherine and I have been deeply touched by the warm welcome Belizeans have given us.

“We hope to return again soon and to show our children this wonderful country. They are rather jealous that they are not with us now!”

It was a marked departure from earlier in the day when William and Kate dressed down in their casual clothes as they visited ancient ruins.

The couple wore khaki trousers as they travelled deep into the heartland of Belize to visit the Maya ruins of Caracol, which date back to 1200 BC.

Kate teamed her trousers by G-Star, which retail for £70, with with a simple white T-shirt and Supergra white trainers and gold hoop earrings.

The 3,000-year-old royal residence and temple, built by the Maya civilisation, stood at the centre of a city – home to an estimated 150,000 people.

Allan Moore, associate director of Belize’s Institute of Archaeology, showed the couple around the site which featured other buildings and was discovered in the 1930s by a logger looking for mahogany.

He told them: “It’s like looking at the inside of Buckingham Palace. This is just a small fraction of what we have here.”

After, the royal couple spent time with British and Belizean troops deep in the Chiquibul Forest, where they received a survival masterclass.

William visited Belize as a teenager in 2000, when he reportedly learned jungle survival techniques with the Welsh Guards who were receiving training from the British Army Training Support Unit as part of Exercise Native Trail.

William was beginning a gap year before university at the time and while in the jungle, the then 18-year-old duke learned his A level results.
