Famous singer Lionel Richie has recently met with Prince Charles in Barbados, where he was declared the global ambassador for The Prince's Trust International.


The meeting took place on Tuesday, March 19, 2019, as part of Charles' 12-day tour of the Caribbean, during which he will be accompanied by his wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles.

It has been reported that the 69-year-old musician is now expected to introduce the Prince's charity to an international audience after the reception at the Coral Reef Club Hotel.



The Prince's Trust International is an extension of The Prince's Trust, an organization that has reportedly helped people in the United Kingdom, aged 13 to 30, have a better life for the past 43 years.

The extension found back in 2015, has the same purpose but focuses on helping young people from Australia, India, Canada, Jordan, Malta, Pakistan and Barbados.

While at the Coral Reef Club Hotel, Richie and Charles were seen talking to each other on several occasions and even sharing quite a few laughs here and there.

Aside from Richie's girlfriend, Lisa Parigi, the duo was also joined by none other than singer Tom Jones, who warmly embraced Richie at the event.

Later that night, The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall attended a reception held at the Prime Minister of Barbados Mia Mottley's residence, where they had the opportunity to mingle some more with Richie and Jones.



The Caribbean tour started on Sunday, March 17, when the Prince visited St. Lucia before flying to Barbados, where Camilla was already waiting for him, having flown there ahead of him.

On Monday, the Royals were spotted having a good time and enjoying the warm weather of Barbados at the beach, with Charles sporting a pair of floral trunks and Camilla a dark-blue one-piece swimsuit.
