Prince Harry to fly to Barbados on an official visit
Our Prince Harry will soon be jetting off to Barbados holidays on an official three-day visit from Friday, January 29, until Sunday.
Upon arrival to his brief Barbados holiday, he will participate in the inaugural Sentebale Polo Cup, as well as a number of other official engagements involving children and young people.
The 'Sentebale' was set up by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho of Southern Africa in 2006 to help orphans and vulnerable children there.
On arrival to his Barbados holidays on 29th January 2010, Prince Harry will call on Governor-General Sir Clifford Husbands.
During his stay, Prince Harry will meet with children at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital; and, along with Prince Seeiso, will attend a children's party at the Barbados Museum.
About the upcoming visit, Prime Minister David Thompson said: “Prince Harry's visit will help reinforce the strong links the Royal Family has with Barbados as a member of the Commonwealth. Prince Harry has a desire to improve the welfare of children and young people, so it is only natural that his official engagements would focus on that. We look forward to welcoming him to Barbados.”
On Sunday, January 31, Prince Harry, Barbadians Teddy and Stephen Williams and English polo player Mark Tomlinson, will play for the Sentebale Team, at the Apes Hill Polo Club against the South African Team.
This three-day trip will be the Prince's first formal engagement in Barbados.
