We know the Prince will do a great job!

Prince Harry is never happiest than when on official meet and greet duties for the Royal Family.

And now the Queen has entrusted him with his most exciting overseas mission yet.

Yesterday Kensington Palace confirmed that Harry will make an official visit to the Caribbean this autumn, on Her Majesty’s behalf.

HRH will visit the following islands:

Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Could this be a key moment for Prince Harry?

The trip will coincide with the 50th Anniversary of Independence for Barbados and the 50th anniversary of independence for Guyana. This is as well as the 35th anniversary of independence for Antigua and Barbuda.


Harry last visited Barbados in 2010, where he impressed locals with his easy manner and dancing skills during a fundraising concert for Haiti.

Harry also visited a local hospital during his three-day trip and took part in a charity polo match.

He ended the trip with these words:

‘It’s been an exhausting trip – I feel like I have been here a month not two days – but absolutely rewarding.’

The timing of this visit could be significant as Barbados prime minister Freundel Stuart made key announcement last year. He revealed that he intends to replace the Queen as head of state with a ceremonial president.
