Mek wih go paaty: Prince Harry hits Belize (photos)
PRINCE William gets the Falkland Islands. Prince Harry gets a “block party” in Belize, and a tour of the Bahamas, Jamaica and Brazil as a representative of Queen Elizabeth II.
When William talks of family he seems to mean his mother, with a tilted head and reserved sentimentality. For Harry, family is grandiose, like his father. So. Harry gets to go to the Caribbean. Alone. No significant other. The spectre of casual sex and a princess spotted in a sea of faces looms.
Prince Harry’s first stop was Belmopan, the capital of Belize. He went to name a street in honour of the Queen, and to dance and to drink rum.
“Her Majesty has asked me to send her good wishes to you all. She remembers so fondly her visits to this beautiful realm and speaks of the warmth of welcome she received on her most recent visit in 1994. I’m only sorry she can’t make it and you’re stuck with me.”
“Mek wih go paaty (let the party begin)”.
