(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, met Syrian refugees in the Jordanian town of Ramtha, near the border with Syria on Wednesday (March 13). The royal couple were greeted by United Nations staff at the King Abdullah Park camp in Ramtha, which is home to just under 1,000 people who have fled Syria during the two-year-old conflict. Prince Charles said he was stuck by the generosity of the Jordanian people in the face of a desperate refugee situation. "I think the great thing that's come out of this is just how unbelievably generous the Jordanian people are, they are truly remarkable I think in what they've managed to cope with and deal with in terms of all these hundreds of thousands of refugees," he said. Camilla added that she found the situation heartbreaking. "I found it a very humbling experience, seeing all those children some without parents, who have lost their parents, who have been adopted by others. find it quite heartbreaking," she said. The King Abdullah Park camp is run by the United Nations, Unicef and Save the Children and is home to around 921 refugees, Unicef said. More than 330,000 Syrians have sought refuge in Jordan since the war began, according to Unicef figures.
