His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales – who is affectionately known as Prince Harry – is in Barbados.
He was welcomed to the island around 9:00 am today, by a party that included Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave; Prime Minister Freundel Stuart; Chief of Staff of the Barbados Defence Force, Colonel Alvin Quintyne, Acting Commissioner of Police, Tyrone Griffith; Minister of Foreign Affairs, Senator Maxine McClean; and Minister of Labour and Social Security, Dr Esther Byer-Suckoo.
After the playing of the National Anthem, Prince Harry inspected the troops, before standing for the Anthem once again.
He will next head to Government House where he will pay a courtesy call on Sir Elliott and meet with Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awardees.
Prince Henry’s busy day will continue with a visit to the Prime Minister at Ilaro Court after which he will tour two recently-renovated buildings at the Nightengale Children’s Home in Black Rock, St Michael, after officially opening the facilities. He will then observe children at the home play a match of road tennis
He will then attend one of the most anticipated events of the day, as he places the gnomon on the sundial in the 50th Anniversary of Independence Monument, when he attends the unveiling ceremony at the Garrison Savannah this evening.
