All the stops were pulled out last week when Britian’s Prince Harry visited The Bahamas and Jamaica for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. Both countries are a part of the English speaking Caribbean and were until the 1970’s still under British rule.
The Prince had the opportunity to take part in several cultural events and followed in the footsteps of his mother, the late Princess Diana, by making it a priority to visit with the youth of the nations. Locals and tourists lined the streets and participated in several nationally recognized events to honor the young royal.
