Prince Charles to visit several Caribbean countries in March

Britain’s Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, are due visit St. Lucia and other countries as part of a visit to the Caribbean next month, according to a government statement.
It said that the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, will arrive here on March 17 and will be guests of honour at an event to mark the island’s 40 anniversary of political independence from Britain.
St. Lucia gained its independence on February 22, 1979.
Governor General, Sir Neville Cenac and Prime Minister Allen Chastanet will welcome the royal visitors.
“This is the second time the Prince of Wales will be celebrating St. Lucia’s Independence with nationals. The Prince of Wales visited in 1989 to commemorate the 10th anniversary,” the statement said, adding that the Duchess of Cornwall is also marking her second visit to the island, having first visited in March 2008.
The visit here forms part of a March 17-29 Caribbean tour that will take the royal visitors to Barbados, St Vincent and the Grenadines, St Kitts-Nevis and Grenada, Cuba and the Cayman Islands.
The visit to Cuba will be the first for members of the British Royal family
