What wedding? Charles and Camilla look more relaxed than ever as they walk arm-in-arm in Morocco

Relaxed in Rabat: Charles and Camilla show a rare glimpse of affection as they stroll arm-in-arm through the Kasbah des Oudaias

Most couples with less than a month to go before hosting a wedding would have a valid excuse to look a little haggard - particularly if it is destined to be the wedding of the year.

But Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have rarely looked happier and more relaxed.

The couple gave a rare glimpse of affection today as they walked arm-in-arm in sunny Rabat on the last leg of their official visit to Portugal, Spain and Morocco.

Charles and Camilla chatted and smiled as they strolled through the cobbled streets of the Kasbah des Oudaias area of the Moroccan capital.

Some had questioned whether the three day state visit to the African country should still go ahead considering the volatile political situation in its neighbouring countries.

Morocco has so far avoided prolonged unrest. But a few people died during protests in February.

Several thousand people took part in protests in Casablanca, Morocco's biggest city, yesterday - just as Charles and Camilla's visit to the country began.

Clarence House said that the Foreign Secretary, William Hague, had reassured the royal couple that the visit should go ahead.

The royal visit will focus on multi-faith issues, climate change and trade.

Charles and Camilla were welcomed by a guard of honour and Prince Moulay Rachid as they arrived at Rabat-Sale Airport yesterday.

They then visited the Mausoleum of Mohammed V before travelling on to King Mohammed VI's private residence, the Palais Dar Essalam.

Today Charles was supposed to travel to an oasis to see how locals are tackling the loss of arable land to the encroaching desert. But it was too windy so instead he joined his wife in the Kasbah and they looked very happy to be together.

The couple should make the most of their relaxing trip. They will be pretty busy when they get back to London.
