The Duchess of Cornwall was wearing a lovely sage-coloured floral dress, which was knee length and appropriately light for the hot Middle Eastern weather. Camilla also wore some low-heeled beige court shoes as she posed beside her husband. She could be seen wearing her Fitbit as she walked the steep road.
After photos were released of the royal couple, royal fans were pleased to see the pair enjoying their tour.

After a busy first day of their official mini-tour of the Middle East, including a lavish dinner at Al Husseiniya Palace in Amman yesterday evening, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Umm Qais on Wednesday morning.
The Prince, who turned 73 on Sunday, and Camilla, 74, were accompanied on the early morning walking tour by Jordanian Princess Dana Firas, 51.
As the group wandered the main dusty avenue through the archaeological ruins, Charles and Camilla learned about the site’s rich tapestry of history including Hellenic, Roman, Byzantine and Early Muslim influences.
Keeping cool in the desert sun, the Prince of Wales opted for a light coloured suit, while Camilla wore a sage-coloured floral dress.
During the walkabout, Charles stopped to plant a tree to symbolise the UK-Jordanian partnership.
The ancient site, now known as Umm Qais, appears in the bible as Gadara and remains one of Jordan’s biggest tourist attractions.
The couple showed off their fitness too, appearing to walk the steep stone steps with ease, and Camilla even led the way, wearing her Fitbit.
The British royals have received a warm welcome so far in the Middle Eastern country, which is seen as a strong ally for the Government.
Camilla and Charles will head to Egypt later this week.
Yesterday Charles and Camilla were hosted in Al Husseiniya Palace by King Abdullah II and Queen Rania.
On Tuesday afternoon, they flew by helicopter to one of the most important religious sites in Jordan and walked down to the riverbed where it is believed Jesus Christ was baptised.
Last night, Charles and Camilla were back at Al Husseiniya Palace, this time to attend a private banquet hosted by the Jordanian King and Queen.
It was reported by Rustom Mkhjian, the Director-General of the Baptism Site, that Prince Charles took “five or six dozen bottles” of Holy water taken from the River Jordan back to the UK for royal baptisms.
This could include that of Lilibet, the granddaughter he has yet to meet.
