Objects ranging from jade jewellery to funerary masks will be on display as the exhibit opens to the public 19th June and runs until 18th October 2015.

The exhibition is presented by the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) in Mexico. It is part of the 2015 ‘Year of Mexico in the United Kingdom’ and ‘Year of the United Kingdom in Mexico’.

Charles and his wife visited Mexico in November 2014. It was during their official welcome, The President of Mexico and Prince Charles launched the Year of the UK in Mexico 2015.

Charles embarked on a solo visit to take a look at new Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. There he met patients, staff and others involved in its development.

The Prince also met some of the members of the Children and Young Person’s Design Group, who guided and afforded feedback to architects working on the project.

As her husband went on to his engagement, Camilla paid a visit to Kids in Need and Distress (KIND) Children’s Centre to mark its 40th anniversary.

KIND Liverpool was established in 1975 and supports young people by providing access to educational tools and classes.

The Duchess last visited the facility in 2010 when she begun an appeal to raise funds for the refurbishment of an abandoned part of the building into the new Health and Wellbeing Centre.

During her visit on Thursday, she officially opened the Centre as it has reached completion.

After her visit to KIND, Camilla travelled to Birkenhead to make a stop at Manor Primary School. There she met parents and students who benefit from the Foundation Years Trust programme.

The Trust supports parents from pregnancy until their child begins school.

Staff and Volunteers from the Trust spoke with The Duchess about their work during the visit.
