Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, will tour the Caribbean next year as part of a global tour celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
They will visit the Queen’s 15 realms and other destinations with close links to the United Kingdom next year.
The pair of royals will visit Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago.
