Suffice to say their disguise wasn't too successful...

It's official - Prince Charles and Camilla have more fun together than any other royal family member - and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
From idyllic Caribbean beaches, to Europe's most eclectic markets, the couple always make the most of their colourful royal engagements with grace, ease and plenty of laughs to boot.
As for their latest outing? Well, let's just say they've taken their barrel-of-laughs attitude to the next level.
In a gorgeous moment, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall hosted a reception for the Elephant Family Animal Ball at Clarence House on June 13, and while the occasion was formal on the surface, there was a certain quirk to it that's delighted the masses.
Indeed the ball was that of the masquerade form, and Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla embraced it in all its glory.
Both donning stunning black bejewelled tiger masks, the royal couple were the picture of complete and utter glory - and they couldn't have looked happier doing it!

The ball, which was organised by international NGO Elephant Family, is an annual event held to raise awareness for Asian elephant extinction in the wild.
The royals mixed with A-list guests during the event, and appeared to enjoy themselves thoroughly.
One snap featured the jolly prince roaring with laughter as he held tight to his mask, which was designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee - we'd love to know what the joke was!

The event was also attended by a slew of A-listers, including fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, famed British actor Douglas Booth and model Yasmin Le Bon.

And all fun and games aside, the event was very close to the royal couple's hearts - the Elephant Family Foundation was in fact founded by Camilla's brother Mark Shand.
The extended royal family are also known to be animal lovers, with Charles' son Prince Harry himself being very open about his work in Africa for endangered species.
In April, a stunning post pn Harry and wife Meghan's Instagram account @SussexRoyal shared a series of pictures to promote conservation in a bid to spread a message for the safeguarding of animals.
One such photo featured Prince Harry and Meghan securing an elephant in Africa with a tracker in order for its better protection in the future.

"Approximately 100 elephants are poached/killed every day for their ivory tusks," a statement from Sussex Royal read.
"Using satellite technology allows conservationists to track their critical migratory patterns and to protect them and the local communities from human wildlife conflict."
It seems Charles and Camilla would be very proud of their work - the more awareness for such an important cause, the better!
