Prince Harry is on a two-week tour of the area. He is traveling on behalf of 90-year-old grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and is set to conclude his trip in Guyana this weekend.
Not everything has gone well for the young prince according to plans.
The prince’s Royal flag flew off a mast attached to his official chauffeur-driven Land Rover after he arrived in Guyana Friday for the final leg of his trip. An official ran to retrieve it from the road.
During a Nov. 21 reception in Antigua held in in the prince’s honour, the 32-year-old royal appeared a bit embarrassed after Gaston Browne, Antigua and Barbuda’s prime minister, mentioned his girlfriend Meghan Markle. Why get ambarrassed? The whole world knows it.
“I understand that there may be a new addition to the royal family very soon,” the state leader said. “I am told that there may be a princess, and I just want to say that should you make the decision to honeymoon, then Antigua and Barbuda want to welcome you.”
When the prince arrived in St. Kitts and Nevis, the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Wave Knight, the fast fleet tanker he’s been living on during his tour, docked so early that there was no one there to welcome him, The Telegraph reported. Harry was later greeted by members of the St. Kitts Nevis Defecse Force.
The Royal Fleet Auxiliary Wave Knight broke down at the port in Saint Vincent Saturday. Engineers were called to fix the problem, described as a “technical fault,” The Telegraph said.
During his visit to Saint Vincent, Harry took part in an impromptu minute’s silence for late Cuban leader Fidel Castro during a drinks reception. The prince observed the silence along with Saint Vincent’s prime minister who described Castro as “a good friend of the island,” according to The Independent.
Harry must’ve gotten a seriously stiff neck while chatting with stilt walkers on Grand Anse Beach in Grenada.
As Harry attempted to pin a British Empire Medal onto the chest of a retired farmer at a reception in Grenada, it dropped to the floor, The Daily Express reported.
Harry came face to face with his likeness, drawn by a local artist, in Grand Anse beach.
The prince told him the artwork was “amazing,” and that he has “a serious talent,” according to The Daily Express.
On Wednesday, the prince was forced to change his schedule due to torrential rain and added a new item on his itinerary: a trip to a hospital, where he delighted children in the padiatric unit.
As he crouched down to speak to a boy treated for injuries sustained in a car accident, the child embraced the prince. “Ah, a big hug,” Harry said. “Do you like giving hugs?”
These little blunders, if you can call them that, will further enhance young royal’s popularity as the most unconventional and popular royal of the British monarchy! Now, he is going to marry a divorced television actress whose father is Caucasian and the mother African American.
