Prince Harry has just graduated from the Royal Air Force as a certified Apache attack helicopter pilot and now the Prince of Wales is off on an official royal tour that began in Belize. The 27-year-old brother-in-law of Kate Middleton is enjoying a week-long trip to Central America and the Caribbean as part of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee.
Harry certainly appeared to really be enjoying his time in the tiny commonwealth country of Belize last night as he partied it up and absorbed the culture at a block party in Belmopan. After renaming a street after his 85-year-old Grandmother, Harry tasted the local food, drank some rum and danced his ginger butt off in a traditional—and somewhat sheer—traditional shirt. Yowza!
Harry spent the day warding off sunburn as he toured Xunantunich, an abandoned Mayan ruin where he climbed to the top of the highest pyramid and watched a traditional deer dance. Later, the Daily Mail reports that the Prince stayed to mingle and even hugged some of the delighted dancers. Still trying to make Chelsea Davy jealous I suspect.
Harry is in the Bahamas and will be in Jamaica on Monday where he is to have a very special race against champion sprinter Usain Bolt. He will also be making a stop in the secluded Pantanal region of Brazil for some time away from the press. “Harry is attracted to Pantanal because of the wildlife and how remote and private it is,” a source told the Daily Mail. ‘He wants to relax after what will be a busy trip.”
Do you think Harry is a great Royal! We do – he has his fun but people seem to like him. Certainly far less conservative behavior that his brother, the heir to the throne, Prince William.
