By Benjamin Flowers: Buckingham Palace has confirmed that Prince William and his wife Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be coming to Belize as a part of their Caribbean tour.
The statement issued today states that the Duke and Duchess’s tour will take them on official visits to Belize, Jamaica, and The Bahamas on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen on the occasion of the Platinum Jubilee. Their visits are scheduled to take place between Saturday 19 March and Saturday 26 March.
“The Royal tour begins in Belize where Their Royal Highnesses will visit historic Mayan sites and celebrate the rich culture of the Garifuna community as well as exploring the country’s biodiversity,” Buckingham Palace said. “The Duke and Duchess will then travel to Jamaica where their visit will include engaging with the Jamaican Defence Force and celebrating the seminal legacy of Bob Marley and other ground-breaking Jamaican musicians alongside some of tomorrow’s stars.”
During their tour the Duke and Duchess are seeking to learn about the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the region. They are also said to be focusing their work with The Royal Foundation, including The Earthshot Prize, mental health and the importance of early childhood to lifelong outcomes.
” As with previous overseas visits, The Duke and Duchess have asked that this tour allows them to meet as many local people as possible. Over the course of their time in the Caribbean, Their Royal Highnesses will meet a wide variety of groups, including children, young people and families, frontline workers, service personnel, leaders from government, business and the charity sector as well as inspiring conservationists, and the early years workforce,” Buckingham Palace added.
Their tour is set to end in The Bahamas where they will visit several communities on several islands and are expected to attend a junkanoo parade.
