Yesterday we saw photos of Prince Harry in Jamaica where he raced and WON against the fastest man in the world Usain Bolt. Today we learn that Harry is still in Jamaica and appears to be having the time of his life. In the photos below you can see Prince Harry dancing with a lovely Jamaican woman as he puts his blue suede shoes to good use. Harry dancing? Oh yes you have to see these photos.
Prince Harry danced his socks off in blue suede shoes yesterday. The prince was visiting the Rise Life project in downtown Kingston when he was pulled to his feet by attractive Chantol Dormer. The 27-year-old royal proved that, unlike most men, he had remarkably good rhythm as he gyrated to a rendition of reggae legend Bob Marley’s One Love … Harry met children and staff participating in a counseling session and viewed some of the centre’s facilities including an IT workshop, before attending a Rise Life party in the courtyard with scores of young people and staff. Last night Harry attended a black tie state dinner with Prime Minister Mrs Simpson. In a well-received speech the prince had his audience eating out of his hand with a few jokes in the local patois. He said: ‘I count it a great privilege to be standing here tonight, representing The Queen in Jamaica on her Diamond Jubilee. Her Majesty has asked me to extend her great good wishes to you all, and is sorry that she can’t be here – so you’re stuck with me… but don’t worry, cos every liddle ting gonna be aright!’ Harry added: ‘It is many years since The Queen first came to Jamaica – 59, in fact. Ever since then, this island and its people have retained a very special place in her heart. Your vibrancy and vigour, your wonderful welcome to visitors and your island’s natural beauties – all combine to make Jamaica unique. The Queen recognised this. As a representative of the younger generation, I see fully what my Grandmother means. This is truly an exciting place to be. Jamaicans are exciting people to be around – especially when they run the 100 metres in 9.58. If I may, just for a moment, I would like to take this opportunity to pay a personal tribute to my Grandmother. For me, as for millions of people around the world, her lifetime’s service to others is truly an inspiration. But she combines all her virtues as a leader and as a Head of State, with those of being a wonderful, caring grandmother – to whom we, her grandchildren, are utterly devoted. It just leaves me, therefore, to say on behalf of The Queen how grateful Her Majesty is for the heartfelt way in which Jamaicans have embraced her Diamond Jubilee and are helping her to celebrate it. As for me, I haven’t been here for long, but – wow – if I had, I’m not sure my Grandmother would get me back.’
Go, Harry, Go. I didn’t actually know that Prince Harry would be staying in Jamaica for an extra day (days?) but seeing how much fun he appears to be having in these photos, I can understand why he seems reluctant to leave. I’m not sure if I’ll ever get the pleasure of meeting Mr. Prince of Wales on the dancefloor someday but I hope I do … homeboy can dance! These photos are so fun. Harry‘s tour looks so fun. I wonder what he’ll get up to next.
