    PRINCE CHARLES, WHO HAS BEEN ATTENDING SCHOOL IN AUSTRALIA, ON MONDAY ARRIVED IN MEXICO ON HIS WAY TO THE COMMONWEALTH GAMES IN JAMAICA.

    ALTHOUGH HIS VISIT TO MEXICO WAS NOT OFFICIAL, THE PRINCE RECEIVED A ROUSING WELCOME FROM PHOTOGRAPHERS AND REPORTERS AT THE AIRPORT.

    LATER, THE PRINCE VISITED THE MEXICAN NATIONAL MUSEUM OF ANTHROPOLOGY AND SPENT SOME TIME INSPECTING RELICS OF MEXICO'S ANCIENT AZTEC CIVILISATION.

    HE ASKED FREQUENT QUESTIONS ABOUT THE EXHIBITION AND CLOSELY EXAMINED EXAMPLES OF EARLY AZTEC RELIGION AND CULTURE.

    THE MUSEUM IS ONE OF THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE OF ITS TYPE IN THE WORLD.

    PRINCE CHARLES SIGNED THE VISITORS REGISTER AFTER HIS VISIT.

    HE WAS DUE TO LEAVE MEXICO FOR JAMAICA TODAY (WEDNESDAY), WHERE HE WILL BE RE-UNITED WITH HIS FATHER, THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH, AND HIS SISTER, PRINCESS ANNE, WHO ARE ALSO ATTENDING THE COMMONWEALTH GAMES.
