Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, are mere minutes away from a Royal Visit to St. Kitts and Nevis on. The March 21 trip comes as part of Their Royal Highnesses’ visit to six countries and one Overseas Territory, undertaking over fifty engagements across ten islands, including a visit to Cuba. It will be the first official visit by a member of the Royal Family to Cuba.
As part of their visit, the Royals will engage Governor General Sir Tapley Seaton, Prime Minister Dr. the Hon. Timothy Harris and visit specific sites on St. Kitts and Nevis. These include Brimstone Hill Fortress, the Berkeley Memorial and the Museum in St. Kitts and the Hermitage Plantation House on Nevis.
The visit is trending on social media platforms- some because of the excitement of seeing Royalty and in other cases because of the major disruptions cause, especially to traffic flow.
Motorists are being advised to be avoid the central areas of Basseterre, as most of the major roadways have been blocked to accommodate the Royal couple’s visit.
According to the communique from Clarence House “Their Royal Highnesses’ visit to Saint Lucia, Barbados, St. Vincent and The Grenadines, St. Kitts and Nevis and Grenada will celebrate the Monarchy’s relationship with these Commonwealth Realms. Furthermore, at the request of the British Government, Their Royal Highnesses will also visit Cuba to highlight the growing bilateral relationship with the UK and showcase some of the cultural links between the two countries. Their Royal Highnesses will also visit the British Territory of the Cayman Islands to celebrate its place within the British family.”
