Prince Henry of Wales (Prince Harry) has arrived in the Caribbean for a two-week visit to seven countries. The countries on the itinerary include Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Barbados, and Guyana.
The reason for his second official visit to the Caribbean is to join in celebrations of the 35th anniversary of independence for Antigua and Barbuda, along with the 50th anniversary of the independence of Barbados and Guyana.
The official statement made from Buckingham Palace:
“Prince Harry is honoured to be visiting the Caribbean in the year of The Queen’s 90th birthday and to continue to develop The Royal Family’s strong bonds with the people of these important Commonwealth countries. While these Caribbean countries may be relatively small in size, each has more than their fair share of natural wonders, inspiring individuals, and unique cultures which His Royal Highness will experience during this two-week tour.”
