PRINCE HARRY IN THE BAHAMAS AND JAMAICA FOR A DIAMOND JUBILEE TOUR

Prince Harry continued his Diamond Jubilee Tour on behalf of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.  On March 5, 2012, Harry attended a Youth Rally at National Stadium in Nassau, Bahamas.  He then went on to visit Jamaica where, on March 6th, he posed and raced with Usain Bolt at the Usain Bolt Track at the University of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica.   The prince was also given a statue of Usain Bolt by Portia Simpson-Miller, Jamaica’s prime minister, at a reception before a banquet that was held in the Governor-General of Jamaica’s official residence, King’s House, on March 6th, also in Kingston.  During the banquet, Prince Harry in a speech said, “If I may, just for a moment, I would like to take this opportunity to pay a personal tribute to my grandmother.”  He then went to say, “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.”

On March 7th, Prince Harry visited Up Park Camp in Kingston, where the Jamaica Defence Force base is located.  While there, Harry, decked in military fatigues, participated in military exercises.  Photos by Getty Images.
