And he's landed. Prince Harry has touched down in Antigua at the start of his tour of the Caribbean which will take him to seven countries across two weeks. There are some big anniversaries and some major events coming up on this visit for Harry and it began with a right royal welcome for the prince.

Harry might prefer to keep things relaxed but he arrived in Antigua to plenty of ceremony. The prince stepped off the plane to an official welcome and a military parade by the Antigua and Barbuda Defence Force.

Prince Harry inspected the Guard but it wasn't all formal. There was also music from a local band giving Harry a flavour of the entertainment he cane expect over the coming days and weeks.

There was more music lined up for the prince at the first official engagement of the tour. The evening of day one will include a reception hosted by Governor General, Sir Rodney Williams, with more cultural performances promised.

The prince will spend three days in Antigua and Barbuda during which time he will attend a Youth Sports Festival and a Charities Showcase as well as meeting school children in Barbuda and hearing about nature conservation in the area.

This royal tour is set to be all about photos - the first thing on the Kensington Palace Instagram account after Harry had touched down was an invitation to people who see the prince to share their photos of him. In the world of modern media, every moment can be captured and sent around the globe in seconds. Get ready to see a lot of Harry in the coming days as his Caribbean tour gets under way.

Read more details of Harry's complete tour in this look ahead and keep up to date with the trip on a special page here.
