Prince Charles is visiting three Caribbean jurisdictions which were severely affected by hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017. His Royal Highness arrived in Antigua & Barbuda today Friday, November 17th to conduct engagements in Antigua, which was left untouched by the hurricane, however sister island Barbuda experienced unprecedented damaged and the population evacuated in the days following Hurricane Irma. Tomorrow, the Price of Wales visits the British Virgin Islands, and on Sunday, November 19th he flies to Dominica.
Clarence House said in a statement: “His Royal Highness’s visit comes following the widespread devastation in the region caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. During the tour the Prince of Wales will meet members of the local communities and hear about the ways in which they have been recovering since the storms hit the Islands.”
The three island nations are the former colonies of the Crown and the Queen is the Head of State in Antigua & Barbuda. The country is still very connected with its former Metropole: Antigua & Barbuda inherited the English language, British law, cultural and religious diversity, and historical sites including the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Nelson’s Dockyard. The British sailing community is largely responsible for turning Antigua into a world sailing capital, and today the island hosts a variety of international regattas and a sophisticated mix of international travelers during the temperate winter months. A favorite of the European and British elite for decades, Antigua is now more then ever a center of attraction for wealthy individuals from all over the world.
