The Prince of Wales CHARLES and CAMILLA, Duchess of Cornwall have made history. They are the first members of the royal family to visit Cuba in an official capacity. Both are seen as an attempt to help form closer ties between the UK and Cuba, which were foes during the Cold War. The couple also attended a ceremony for Cuba’s national hero, the poet, and essayist JOSE MARTI, due to join the country’s president for an official dinner. After this week they will be joined by Commonwealth minister. Lord Ahmad is flying to the country to represent the UK government.
