Upon arrival on the island, the prince was greeted by traditional dancers after which he is the president of Vanuatu, Tallis Obed Moses, met. According to the tradition of the Malvatumauri tribe, Charles participated in a number of rituals.

He took a sip of a cup of special drink, a Royal Kava. That was last drunk when his father Philip, the duke of Edinburgh, the island in 1974 visited. “I am moved by the reception and I am very grateful for the title that I received,” he said. He added: “Vatu, you’re number one!”


After the meeting with the president visited Charles a local market, where he had a bag and a hat bought for his wife Camilla. Then he went along to a hospital in the capital, Port Vila in 2015 hard-hit by the tropical cyclone Pam.
