Prince Henry of Wales Arrives Today

Saint Lucia is in a state of readiness as the Government and People anticipate   the official visit of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales. The youngest son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana is known more popularly as Prince Harry.

This will be the first visit to Saint Lucia by Prince Henry of Wales who is undertaking an official visit to the Caribbean on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, between 20th November and 4th December 2016.

On Tuesday, the Royal Visit Planning Committee headed by the Executive Chair Senator Dr. Adrian Augier held a media briefing at the studios of the Government Information Service to announce that every effort has been made to ensure that the Prince has a memorable stay on island.

Senator Augier stressed that the official programme planned for the visit will as much as possible include opportunities for national participation.

“The welcome ceremony for the Prince is at Pointe Seraphine Berth No. 2 on Thursday afternoon. Guests and media are expected to be there by 4:45 PM. Clearly there are a few procedures to go through in terms of security arrangements and we would like everything to be in place.  That ceremony will comprise largely government officials as it is the Official Welcome by the state to the Prince”.

Dr. Augier indicated that there will be an area designated for the public to take in the function.

“Members of the Public who are interested in witnessing the ceremony would be able to come alongside the Pointe Seraphine Complex where the berths divide from the main Complex.”  

For the benefit of the public, please note this location is near the Pyramid building. The docks will be opened for access and will be heavily manned by security.  

Comprehensive coverage of the Royal Visit will be provided by the Government Information Service/National Television Network (NTN) including Live coverage of the Exhibition Cricket Match at the Daren Sammy Grounds on Friday from 9:15 AM, the Tree Planting ceremony at Pigeon Island National Landmark at 1:10 PM and the Street Festival in Soufriere from 4 PM. Intermittent updates will also be provided on the government website and also on the Facebook Page

      He was christened as Henry Charles Albert David. But we call him “Harry”. Apparently “Harry” is the nickname for “Henry” – English madness.

But you must turn away from unrighteousness and start to do good to one an another. Father Almighty bless St Lucia and it’s people.

    We now have the privilege to write whatever we wish which can be read world wide, in so doing we must exercise respect and consideration to all especially our guest and visitors. No matter how you feel. Don’t forget the written words are more powerful than the spoken words and will be remembered long after you have gone.

      Nothing against Harry personally.

      However your comments make you sound like a house slave always wanting to please your Master.

      One should only give respect to people who show them respect.

      Do some reading about the history of the British Royal Family and what they openly sanctioned in order to build they Empire.

      If you have an ounce of honesty in you, you would not have the sentiments towards them like you demonstrated in your above comment.

    Sometimes some Lucians can really embarrass themselves and other Lucians..

    Instead you’ll go and do some research you’ll coming on here to make comments or ask questions that really shows your level of intelligence or lack of it…..

    “Harry’s full title is His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales, but he is familiarly known as Prince Harry. He uses the name of the geographical area over which his father holds title—”Wales”—as a territorial suffix in lieu of a surname.”
