Expatriates located in Muscat were among those who met the Prince of Wales and his wife the Duchess of Cornwall on their trip to Oman this week.
The three-day visit to the sultanate is part of a wider tour of the Middle East, allowing the royal couple to mix with Brits living and working abroad.
Jamie Bowden, the British Ambassador to Oman, said: "Their Royal Highnesses are greatly enjoying their visit to Oman, one of the UK's closest friends. The reception is an opportunity to talk with both members of the British community and Omanis from many walks of life."
Clarence House has said that the prince is keen to meet with military personnel and those who work in the business, health and education sectors during his time in Oman.
A number of Omani dignitaries accompanied Charles and Camilla as they visited the historic fort at Nizwa and Birkat al Mouz where a traditional irrigation system is still in use.
Prince Charles took part in a sword dance while at Nizwa, brandishing the weapon and trying to keep to the drum beat as Camilla looked on from the sidelines, unable to hide her amusement.
The prince has recently let it be known that he is learning to speak Arabic and said that it is important to keep cultural traditions alive.
Camilla also took the opportunity to go to the National Diabetes and Endocrine Centre in Bausher and see the work that is done there.
A mini equestrian festival was held in their honour at the Royal Cavalry at Madinat al Adiyat with Arabian thoroughbred horses put on show to Omani music.
The relationship between Oman and Britain is a strong one, with the Queen a good friend of Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said.
More than a third of the population on the sultanate is made up of expats, with the majority working in the private sector.
Oil, gas, construction and education jobs have a particularly high number of foreigners employed in these industries.
