Prince Harry has a busy itinerary planned for his upcoming royal tour of the Caribbean! The 32-year-old is set to carry out 14 days of official engagements as he visits the region on behalf of the Queen in November and December.
Prince Harry's itinerary for his royal tour of the Caribbean has been revealed
Harry's jam-packed schedule will see him visiting seven countries. He will kick off the visit in the Realms of Antigua and Barbuda, who are celebrating their 35th anniversary of independence, before undertaking a series of day trips to nearby countries including St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada.
There, Prince William's younger brother will be learning more about local projects and initiatives, including youth empowerment, sport for social development and conservation – causes which Harry himself continually champions.

The next leg of the visit will see Harry travelling to Barbados, where he will join thousands of locals who will be celebrating the country's 50th Anniversary of Independence. He is also expected to meet with a number of charities and organisations which carry out work to address social issues that affect the region.
Prince George's uncle will also be visiting Guyana on behalf of the Foreign Office, which is also celebrating 50 years of independence, where he will explore the Hinterland and learn about the country's eco-tourism and focus on conservation.

There, Harry is set to follow in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's footsteps when he will unveil dedications to The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy – the first dedication was unveiled by Prince William and Kate during their recent tour to Canada.
This will mark Harry's second trip to the Caribbean – in 2012 he had embarked on a royal tour of the region also on behalf of the Queen, in honour of the Diamond Jubilee.
"Prince Harry is honoured to be representing The Queen, in the year of her 90th birthday," a spokesperson from Kensington Palace said in a statement. "Particularly as Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados and Guyana mark their own important anniversaries of independence.

"Prince Harry holds special memories of his last visit to the Caribbean, and of the warmth, friendliness and sense of fun that comes so naturally to this region. His Royal Highness is greatly looking forward to meeting more of the people who call it home, and for the opportunity during this tour to be visiting some countries for the first time.
"This visit will allow Prince Harry to experience more of the unique and individual cultures and traditions of these special Commonwealth Realms and countries. His Royal Highness is grateful to have the chance to visit nations that play such important roles in the Commonwealth, and have extended such warmth to his family for many years."
