The royals landed in St Vincent and the Grenadies on the tour to mark the Platinium Jubilee. They were given a warm welcome and greeted by scouts and a guard of honour. Governor general Dame Susan Dougan and acting prime minister Montgomery Daniel welcomed Prince Edward, the Queen’s youngest son.

But later, a small goup gathered to protest against British colonialism. When the couple  were traveling to Government House in St Vincent and the Grenadines on Saturday, about 15 protesters displayed banners reading “end to colonialism” and “£ Compensation Now”.

During the tour, Prince Edward met Commonwealth Games athletes and watched a race held in honour of the Platinum Jubilee and a T10 women’s cricket match. Meanwhile, the Countess of Wessex visited a community college to watch a dance performance and met two groups – Persons With Disabilities and the Society of and for the Blind – in her role as a global ambassador for the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness. The Earl and Countess of Wessex planted a tree to mark the Queen’s 70-year reign.
