Being an admitted anglophile, I just had to share my excitement upon learning the news that one of the royals, Prince Harry, will be visiting Belize! Twice while working in Belize I’ve had the pleasure of seeing British royalty visit. Once I was shopping for one of our tours when Princess Anne and her entourage drove by, and another time, Queen Elizabeth stood just 10 feet away from me!
None of my friends can figure out why I care about this stuff, and I can’t explain it either. One of my best friends is from London, and she thinks I’m crazy.
Anyway, I am happy to share with you all the latest scoop on the royal family’s travel plans from British tabloid The National Ledger:
Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to bring the small island of Tuvalu to a standstill when they mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next year.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge cause a stir wherever they go, and can expect a special reception when they visit the South Pacific island, which has not had a big royal visit in decades.
The couple will also go to Malaysia, Singapore, and the Solomon Islands on behalf of the Queen.
Prince Harry is set to tour Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas, while Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, will visit Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
The Queen turns 86 in April and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, will be 91 next year.
Both will be traveling in the UK for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “The details and timings of the visits are still under discussion with the host governments.”
I wonder if Harry would consider coming in March or April? That’s when I will be there!
