Fourteen days, seven countries, two major anniversaries and quite a lot of fun. The first details of Prince Harry's tour to the Caribbean this autumn have been revealed and if you don't like the fifth in line to the throne, start looking away now. You'll be seeing an awful lot of Harry from the middle of November.


The prince who steals hearts will travel to the Caribbean to represent the Queen on a two week tour, starting on November 20th and ending on December 4th 2016.

During that time he will visit Antigua and Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent, Grenada, Barbados and Guyana. The trip to Grenada is also being made on behalf of the Foreign Office.

In an official statement, Kensington Palace said that Harry is 'honoured to be representing the Queen in the year of her 90th birthday' and added that he was particularly glad to be there as Antigua and Barbuda as well as Barbados and Guyana are all marking independence anniversaries this year.

Prince Harry last visited the Caribbean in 2012 when he carried out a Diamond Jubilee tour there on behalf of the Queen. This visit will include commemorations for those anniversaries as well as engagements linked to social projects, eco tourism and the Queen's Canopy - the project that brings together forests around the Commonwealth.

In the statement, Kensington Palace said that he was 'holds special memories of his last visit' and of the 'warmth, friendliness and sense of fun that comes so naturally to this region'. And one word stands out. When the prince known for his love of fun heads to an area known for its sense of fun telling everyone beforehand he intends to have fun, there's only one conclusion to draw. November and December are going to be, well, fun.
