Britain's Prince Charles and his wife visit Kuwait's Grand Mosque

Britain's Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, visited Kuwait's largest mosque Wednesday where they listened to kindergarten children recite a verse of the Quran.

The royal couple stood shoeless on the Grand Mosque's carpeted floor, smiling to the children who squatted in horseshoe shape.

Prince Charles wore a gray suit, and the Duchess of Cornwall was dressed in a cream-color pants suit. Before stepping into the mosque, she covered her hair with a white scarf, and the two took their shoes off, as is required to enter a mosque. They were offered Arabic coffee in gold-rimmed cups before their tour.

Prince Charles and his wife then sat with officials in a lavishly furnished tent where they held discussions with Kuwait's minister of justice endowments and Islamic affairs and other officials about the country's efforts to promote moderation and religious understanding.

The press did not have access to the meeting, but the British Press Association quoted a royal spokesman as saying the couple talked about ways to combat extremism and how to promote an understanding of Islam as a peaceful religion, reports AP.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are on a tour of Gulf countries and arrived in Kuwait Monday.
