After much anticipation, Prince Harry arrived at Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston shortly after 5pm ET yesterday, where His Royal Highness was greeted by an enthusiastic crowd of government officials, media members, and a 21-gun Royal Salute from the Jamaica Defence Force. As part of the Diamond Jubilee celebration for his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, the 27-year-old prince will spend the next few days touring the Island to mark her 60 years on the throne.
This morning in Kingston, Prince Harry has a full schedule of activities that include a visit to the University of the West Indies, where he will meet with three-time Olympic gold medalist, Usain Bolt. The prince will then head off to the Bustamante Hospital for Children, before heading to a lunch hosted by Prime Minister the Hon. Portia Simpson Miller at the famous Devon House. His Royal Highness will finish his day’s activities at the Victoria Jubilee Hospital, where he will help unveil The Rings of Life statue in commemoration of the Diamond Jubilee, and then visit Rise Life Management Service to explore an exhibition of items made by local youth.
