Prince Charles and wife Camilla joined a group of Rastafarian musicians Wednesday for a drum session outside the old home of reggae great Bob Marley.

On a Caribbean tour to promote environmental protection, the royal couple were led through the home - now a museum honoring the late singer - by Marley's widow, Rita, and sons Robert and Rohan.

Charles and Camilla viewed memorabilia such as tour photos and a Gibson guitar favored by the singer, who rose to international stardom before dying of cancer at 36.

Earlier Wednesday, hundreds of people jostled each other for a glimpse of the British royals during a visit to an impoverished community. Charles chatted with townspeople and planted a seedling at a community center in Rose Town, where his Foundation for the Built Environment is helping with revitalization efforts.

"It's quite a spectacle," local resident Dale Bent said of the touring royals.

The prince also inspected an honor guard in the capital.

Gov. General Kenneth Hall and British High Commissioner Jeremy Cresswell accompanied the royals, who are nearing the close of a five-island tour aboard a 246-foot yacht that boasts a hot tub, gym and 24-member crew.
