No wonder he's smiling, this has been one successful tour. Prince Harry's visit to the Caribbean is over after two weeks, seven countries and a whole lot of fun. It's been a fortnight of huge welcomes and fond memories and it all came to an end in Guyana today. This is how Harry said goodbye to his Caribbean tour.
It was a mix of causes close to Harry's heart and ceremonial as the tour wound to an end on December 4th 2016. First stop was Joshua House which provides a home for children in vulnerable circumstances.

Harry also met some of those looking after the children, who are aged between 5 and 12, to hear how they help turn lives around. From there, Harry attended a reception held by the First Lady of Guyana, Lady Sandra Granger, where the prince met people who have been victims of trafficking and abuse and heard from those who have helped them.

And then it was time to say goodbye. In the company of the First Lady, Harry made his way to Eugene F. Correia Airport where one final Guard of Honour awaited him. The inspection was completed, official farewells were offered and Harry headed home.
