Take us with you, Your Highnesses!
Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles are shaking off the winter blues with a royal tour to the Caribbean, Clarence House recently revealed. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will visit St. Lucia, Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Kitts and Nevis, Grenada, Cuba and the Cayman Islands from March 17 to March 29, 2019—and OMG we have so much wanderlust/jealousy right now.
The Caribbean royal tour (not to be confused with Royal Caribbean tour, which was the fancy name we gave our college spring break cruise) will encompass six countries and one overseas territory (the Cayman Islands), and see the royal couple undertaking over 50 engagements across ten islands(!). Pack those sarongs and sun hats, Your Majesties.
It was previously announced Charles and Camilla would travel to Cuba earlier this month. They will make history this spring as the first members of the British royal family to visit Cuba in an official capacity, according to the Palace. However, Camilla is a little apprehensive about the royal menu of the island.
“She said she loved the music and was interested in the architecture. And she did make a remark about she wasn’t so sure about the food,” Baroness Brenda Hale told The Telegraph after speaking with Parker-Bowles at the U.K. Supreme Court in early February.
Clarence House also said that the visit to Cuba will "highlight the growing bilateral relationship with the U.K. and showcase some of the cultural links between the two countries."
