Inside Kate and William’s Platinum Jubilee Overseas Tour
KATE Middleton and Prince William will visit Jamaica as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Tour.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are due to travel to Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas on March 19 for an eight-day tour.
Kensington Palace said William and Kate will visit historic Mayan sites and celebrate the rich culture of the Garifuna community in Belize, as well as explore the country’s biodiversity.
In Jamaica, they will engage with the Jamaica Defense Forces and celebrate the legacy of Bob Marley and other groundbreaking Jamaican musicians alongside potential future stars.
In the Bahamas, the Cambridges will visit a number of islands and watch a world famous junkanoo parade.
The couple asked to meet as many people as possible, the palace said.
They will also address the regions’ responses to Covid-19 and the impact of the pandemic on the territories.
Kate and William will also address topics “close to their hearts” – including their work with the Earthshot Prize, mental health and the importance of early childhood to lifelong outcomes, a statement added.
A Kensington Palace spokeswoman added: “Their Royal Highnesses look forward to this visit, which will be their first joint official overseas tour since the outbreak of Covid-19 in 2020.”
