Embarking on his second ever Caribbean tour, Prince Harry is on an official two week visit to the Caribbean which began November 20th and will round out on the 4th of December. Marking the 35th Anniversary of Independence in Antigua and Barbuda, and the 50th Anniversary of Independence in Barbados and Guyana, Prince Harry will visit seven countries including the Antigua & Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada and Barbados, as well as visiting Guyana on behalf of the Foreign Office.
Visiting the Caribbean in the year of the Queen’s 90th birthday, Prince Harry aims to continue to develop The Royal Family’s strong bonds with the people of these Commonwealth countries. While these Caribbean countries may be relatively small in size, each has abundant and unique natural wonders, inspiring individuals and unique cultures which the Prince will encounter first-hand during this two week tour.
Just beginning the first half of this Caribbean Royal Affair, the Prince has already visited St. Kitts, Antigua, Nevis, and Granada.
At Lover’s Beach on Nevis, Prince Harry released baby sea turtles to back to the ocean and was greeted in Grenada by a colorful welcome parade, complete with traditional dance and music, later followed by a military parade.
The Caribbean tour will continue to showcase Prince Harry carrying out a wide variety of engagements across the seven countries, from official anniversary ceremonies and meetings with conservationists and young leaders, to engaging with well-known cultural figures, political leaders, and local celebrities. The Prince is said to be paying special attention to issues which are common throughout the region, and will learn how each country and local community is responding to these challenges.
Amidst the backdrop of a picture perfect setting, these two week tour shows one of the world’s most talked-about royals engaging in the authentic cultural activities and day-to-day life of the Caribbean.
