As you might have read through the last week that there were many speculations about the future of Monarchy in Caribbean countries. At the end of their 7 days tour, in an unprecedented approach – that I am sure was consulted with both The Queen and The Prince of Wales – The Duke of Cambridge released a statement in which he said,

“Catherine and I are committed to service. For us that’s not tell people what to do. It’s about serving and supporting them in whatever way they think best, by using the platform we are lucky to have”.

Despite the media hype and ongoing discussion, The Royals understand the fact that there will be realms who will in the future remove The Queen or British Monarch and embrace the republic status. And as William said during the Bahamas speech, “The royal family will support the decision with pride”.

I just want to add to this ongoing discussion that the decision of keeping a constitutional monarchy or having their own President, is only for the people of these realms.  Until they actually do so, it’s just a discussion, at best a hype and at the worst a propaganda to spread hate and negativity. Whenever a county decides to embrace republic status all parties involved do so with a happy smile on their faces and a hope for a better future.

Now let’s have a look at the last 7 days.  The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Belize on Saturday, March 19th to begin their first-ever tour. They met the Governor-General of Belize and paid a courtesy call to the Prime Minister.

On Sunday the royal couple visited a cocoa farm, Hopkins village, and went scuba diving.

On Monday, they explored the ancient Mayan sites and visited the army training center before attending the first evening reception of the tour.

On Tuesday, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge bid farewell to Belize.

And arrived in Jamaica where they met the Governor-General and visited Trench Town.

On Wednesday, they met with the Prime Minister, visited a college, a hospital, and then attended a reception.

On Thursday after attending a military parade, they started for the next leg of the tour and arrived in Belize where they met the Governor-General and Prime Minister.

On Friday, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited a school, met with frontline workers, participated in the sailing regatta, and attended the evening reception.

Today, They visited Abaco to see the impact of Hurricane Dorian, pay respect to the victims. Then they headed for Grand Bahama where they visited the children’s homes and then Coral Vita – the winner of Inaugral Earthhot prizes.

 

Tonight they left for the home after a formal departure ceremony at the airport.
