Prince Harry in the Caribbean, Day Five - St Lucia

After a packed twenty four hours in St Kitts and Nevis, Prince Harry kept things quiet on day five as he arrived in St Lucia. With a full itinerary ahead of him on day six, this part of the tour was perhaps the most formal so far as it was restricted to the official parts that have only peppered the visit so far. That doesn't mean though that Harry didn't add his own twist. Welcome to the Royal Tour of the Caribbean, Day Five.

Harry arrived in St Lucia in the afternoon, at Pointe Seraphine to an official welcome which included, as is traditional, a Guard of Honour.

The prince inspected the guard, stopping to talk to several of those involved as the light began to fade from this Caribbean afternoon.

He then headed to Government House where later on he was guest at an official reception hosted by the Governor General of St Lucia, Dame Pearlette Louisy.

But while there were honours to present and people to meet, Harry added his own touch by coming over all enchanted with the music laid on to welcome him. Which other royal is going to be a sure thing not to make it past a band without breaking out into a smile and quite possibly a small dance?

Harry then headed off to bed on dry land having slept for two nights on board a Royal Fleet Auxiliary Fleet ship. And he woke to a packed day six - anyone for cricket?
