After highlighting the Belizean beauty, acknowledging the past horrific in Jamaica, and hoping for a better future, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge began the third and last leg of their 7 days long Caribbean tour and arrived in the Bahamas – a heaven on earth with its natural beauty.
The Royal couple landed at the Lynden Pindling International Airport and were received by the Governor-General of Bahamas, Cornelius Alvin Smith. Upon arrival, The Duchess received beautiful flowers from eight-year-old Aniah Moss. The welcome ceremony began with the national anthem, then Prince William inspected the Guard of Honours and took the salute.
From there Prince William and Duchess Catherine headed towards their first engagement, meeting with the Prime Minister Philip Brave Davis and his wife Ann-Marie at the Office of Prime minister. The meeting lasted thirty minutes. The Prime Minister told the media that The Duke and Duchess are really looking forward to their stay in the Bahamas. They are going to take a quiet evening tonight to energize themselves for tomorrow.” He also told the royal couple about the country’s initiative about climate, a topic very close to Prince William’s heart.
About the visit, Buckingham Palace said, “The Bahamas is a ‘constitutional monarchy, meaning that The Queen has a unique relationship with the country. In all of her official duties relating to the many islands which make up The Bahamas, Her Majesty speaks and acts as Queen of The Bahamas, rather than Queen of the UK. The Royal Family’s links with the country have been strengthened by regular Royal visits throughout Her Majesty’s reign”.
