Wessexes in West Indies

The Earl and Countess of Wessex are beginning an overseas tour of the West Indies from 21st February to the 7th March, representing The Queen in the year of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee.

TRH will begin in St Lucia, where they will join the 50th Anniversary Independence Day celebrations, attending the Parade and watching a youth performance.

Other highlights of the tour include Their Royal Highnesses’ visit to the Barbados Parliament where they will receive a Joint Address by both Houses, a visit to the Princess Elizabeth Centre in Trinidad and Tobago, built with funds given to The Queen as a wedding present, and a visit to Montserrat, where TRH will see the Island’s ongoing recovery from the devastating effects of the volcanic eruption.
