ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Britain's Prince Charles and his wife Camilla have arrived in the United Arab Emirates as part of their three-nation tour of the Gulf.

The pair on Sunday afternoon toured the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the seven-sheikhdom country.

There, Camilla covered her hair with a blue scarf in a sign of respect at the massive mosque covered in gleaming white marble.

They had just arrived from neighboring Oman.

On Saturday night, Oman's state-run news agency reported that Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who has ruled the country on the eastern edge of the Arabian Peninsula since 1970, met with the royals. Journalists traveling with the royal couple did not attend the meeting.
