Prince Harry to visit Guyana later this year

British High Commissioner H.E. Greg Quinn today (September 05) announced that Prince Harry will be visiting Guyana later this year.

“It gives me great pleasure to be able to confirm that Prince Harry will be visiting Guyana later this year.  This will be the first visit by a member of the Royal Family since 2004 and comes, of course, in the year of Guyana’s 50th anniversary of Independence. It is therefore a particularly relevant time for such a visit,” a media release from the High Commission here stated.

This is part of Prince Harry’s official visit to the Caribbean in the late autumn, on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen.

His Royal Highness will visit Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines.

The visit falls on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of Independence for Barbados, the 50th Anniversary of Independence for Guyana, and the 35th Anniversary of Independence for Antigua and Barbuda.

Prince Harry officially visited Barbados in 2010. This will be his first official visit to all of the other countries.
