Royal boost for Caribbean as Harry’s tour begins

Prince Harry arrived in Antigua on Sunday to begin his 15-day official tour of the Caribbean on behalf of the Queen.

Prince Harry will be on hand to celebrate the 35th anniversary of independence for Antigua and Barbuda, along with the 50th anniversary of independence in both Barbados and Guyana.

Prince Harry touched down on a British Airways flight on Sunday afternoon and his first task was to inspect the guard at the Antigua and Barbuda Defence Force military parade.

During the tour, he is expected to meet singer Rihanna, who will headline an independence-celebration concert in Barbados.

He’ll also meet sportsman Sir Viv Richards. It’s been a busy few days for the cricketing legend, as he also had the pleasure of meeting Travel Mole managing director Graham McKenzie when they played cricket in Antigua.
