Who says the royals have to be prim and proper all the time? Earlier today, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall kicked off her shoes and walked along Derrynane Beach in County Kerry with her husband Prince Charles.

In the photos, it's unclear if she was fully barefoot, or padding around the beach with her stockings on, but we'd prefer to think she had the sand between her toes this morning.


As reporter Carolyn Durand pointed out, the Prince of Wales is quite passionate about the ocean, and a supporter or reducing the amount of plastics that make it into the water.

"The nightmare result of eight million tonnes of plastic entering the ocean every year is set to get worse rather than better," he said at a meeting of environmentalists at the British Academy in London in January.

"We cannot, indeed must not, allow this situation to continue."

Charles and Camilla are currently on a royal tour of both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. They started their trip in Northern Ireland earlier this week, where they visited a memorial garden dedicated to the victims of the 1998 Omagh car bomb, spent a few hours in a local woodshop, and toured a new hospital facility.

During the Republic of Ireland portion of the trip, Charles and Camilla have visited the English Market in Cork (learn you how you, too, can visit the famous trading center here) and Muckross House, a historic home in Killarney National Park.
