Scores of St. Lu­cians turned up at Pointe Seraphine to wel­come His Royal High­ness Prince Henry of Wales to Saint Lu­cia. With a mu­si­cal ren­di­tion by the Po­lice Band, the Prince was es­corted by the Pa­rade Com­man­der to in­spect the Guard of Hon­our be­fore he re­turned to the dias for the Hoist­ing of the Flags. The evening pro­ceeded with a well at­tended re­cep­tion hosted by Gover­nor Gen­eral Dame Pear­lette Louis within the gar­dens of Gov­ern­ment House. Pic­tured are a few im­ages of Thurs­day's his­toric event!

As part of his St. Lu­cia visit yes­ter­day, Prince Harry got the op­por­tu­nity to ex­change his tie and jacket for a t-shirt and jeans as he par­tic­i­pated in an ex­hi­bi­tion mach at the Daren Sammy Cricket Sta­dium. Prince Harry tried out his bowl­ing skills in a six over match against mem­bers of the Gov­er­ment, and he also pre­sented signed cricket bats and medals to the par­tic­i­pants. From there it was onto the Pi­geon Island Na­tional Land­mark for a spe­cial tree plant­ing cer­e­mony. At the er­e­mony, a Ded­i­ca­tion Plaque was also un­veiled des­ig­nat­ing the Cas­tries Water Works Re­serve and Rain­for­est as Saint Lu­cia’s Con­tri­bu­tion to the Queen’s Com­mon­wealth Canopy Project.

Prince Harry's visit will mark a his­toric event in Saint Lu­cia. St. Vin­cent is the next stop on the Prince's royal Caribbean tour.
