Over the weekend we saw photos of Prince Harry busting a move in the streets of Belize last week as he tours the world in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II‘s Diamond Jubilee this year. As Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 60th year as reigning monarch of the United Kingdom, Prince Harry is traveling the world as her emissary to spread goodwill and represent the British royal family. Today we get to see photos of Harry bringing his brand of slick charm to the Bahamas. Click below to see the young prince lookin’ slick as shizz in his snazzy military whites.
Dashing Prince Harry arrived in the Bahamas yesterday to represent his grandmother for the first time – and left with a new legion of female followers. Harry, 27, was greeted by cheers and screams as he conducted his first engagement wearing the No. 1 Tropical Dress of The Blues and Royals, the first time that he has worn the uniform in public. Although he is attached to the Army Air Corps, with whom he recently qualified as an Apache helicopter pilot, the prince is still officially a member of the Household Cavalry regiment. The prince’s uniform was made up of a white tunic and lightweight blue twill trousers with the cavalry’s distinctive red stripe down the side. Instead of a forage cap, however, he was wearing the light blue beret of the Army Air Corps. Around his torso was a gold sash, off which hung his ceremonial sword on the front and a cartouche on the back which was traditionally used to carry messages in. Harry was also wearing gold epaulettes and three medals: (from left to right) his Afghanistan campaign medal, the Queen’s Golden Jubilee medal and her Diamond Jubilee medal, which he was given special permission by his grandmother to wear as they have not been seen in public before … In a speech delivered later in the day, Harry delivered a message from the Queen to the people of the Bahamas. He said: ‘I stand before you with a deep sense of pride at being asked to convey to you a message of good wishes from The Queen on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee. The Bahamas holds a special place in Her Majesty’s heart. Her love for this realm and you, the Bahamian people, stretches back over the decades, right to that first visit in 1966.’ He concluded: ‘I am greatly looking forward to the next 24 hours and the chance to explore and meet more of the people of these stunning islands. I hope, for me, that this is the first of many visits. I’ll certainly be showing off about it to my brother and sister-in-law when I return home. If I may, I would like to conclude by quoting back at you your own motto, which so encapsulates The Queen’s extraordinary life-long commitment to service and community: ‘Forward, Upward, Onward, Together.’ As he left Harry conducted a brief walkabout shaking hands and high fiving wellwishers. The prince is currently on his first week-long foreign tour on behalf of The Queen to mark her Diamond Jubilee. His trip began in Belize last Friday and moves onto Jamaica later this week.
Harry looks good in his uniform, doesn’t he? I wholeheartedly approve. I have to admit, it’s fun to see the young prince flying all around the world as he represents his grandmother and the entire British royal family. Harry is the perfect person to be handling this tour. Next stop, Jamaica. I wonder what fun he’ll get up to there.
