Happy Harry off on tour

Prince Harry is heading off on tour this autumn

Why spoil us with one royal tour, when you can spoil us with two? Kensington Palace has just announced another overseas trip. While William and Kate get to go to Canada, Harry is off to the Caribbean. You just know this is going to be a cracker.

Harry heads off this autumn on a tour he is carrying out on behalf of his grandmother, the Queen. We don't have the dates yet but we do have an idea of where he will be going.

The fifth in line to the throne will be packing plenty in during his trip. Harry is heading to Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia and St Vincent and the Grenadines. That's got to be at least a week.

Harry visited Barbados in 2010 but other than that this is all new territory when it comes to official engagements for the prince. And given that his trip six years ago involved plenty of dancing, this is going to be busy.

In fact, given the list of places already confirmed for this trip it's likely to be a long one. All we know is that it will take place in the 'late autumn' - October or November being favourites for the diary right now. Which means we'll have at least a few weeks to recover from the excitement of #RoyalTourCanada before #HarryonRoyalTour gets going. It's looking like a busy autumn - we really are being spoiled.
