Prince Harry to visit Guyana during Jubilee year
Prince Harry will make an official visit to the Caribbean later this year, on behalf of Her Majesty, The Queen.
“It gives me great pleasure to be able to confirm that Prince Harry will be visiting Guyana later this year. This will be the first visit by a member of the Royal Family since 2004 and comes, of course, in the year of Guyana’s 50th anniversary of Independence. It is therefore a particularly relevant time for such a visit” British High Commissioner to Guyana, Greg Quinn said in a statement on Monday.
He added that more “details will be provided in due course, but in the meantime let me say once again how happy I am that this visit will take place”.
His Royal Highness will visit Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines.
The visit falls on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of Independence for Barbados, the 50th Anniversary of Independence for Guyana, and the 35th Anniversary of Independence for Antigua and Barbuda.
Prince Harry officially visited Barbados in 2010, however, this will be his first official visit to all of the other countries.
