Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sample chocolate during Belize visit

he Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in chocoholic heaven sampling products made in a Belize cocoa farm – but had to work for their sweet treats.

Kate, 39, tried her hand at grinding nibs, broken-up made cocoa beans, backbreaking work traditionally performed by the women in rural communities during their visit to the Che ‘il chocolate farm.

As the future Queen watch her husband pounding away with a mortar and pestle made from volcanic rock she said: “The smell of the chocolate is amazing.”

William, 39, even joked about giving up his day job as a working royal asking Julio Saqui owner of the family run chocolate firm “Do you take apprentices? Can I come and work for you it’s my kind of thing.”

The couple’s eyes lit up when they saw chocolate fountains – dipping tortilla chips into the brown sticky liquid – and they tried hot chocolate made from the organic farm with Kate confessing: “I think our child will be very jealous.”

William gave a little shimmy when they were treated to welcome dance at a village in Belize – known as the country’s happiest village.

But it was Kate in a blue dress, who was first onto the dancefloor, cutting shaped with nine local school children from the Garifuna Cultural Centre.

Wills watched on as Kate stole the show before he began dancing with local organiser Laura Cacho, 57.

They were soon holding hands and gyrating to the music as locals screamed in delight.

She said afterwards: “That was so exciting. A dream come true.

“It was fun he was a good dancer and I told him he got the Garifuna culture in him.

“He did the punta dance better than me.

“He shook his waist to the music. He had beautiful rhythm. It was a pleasure for me.

“Kate was excellent as well and definitely has Garifuna culture in her.

“They were shaking their waists like nobody’s business.”

Kate and William were treated to dancing and food by local Garifuna community in Hopkins on the Caribbean coast.
