Mixing business with play?
Prince Harry was all smiles Friday as he paid homage to his 85-year-old grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, in Belize for the Diamond Jubilee tour marking her 60-year reign.
With brother Prince William away on a military trip and sister-in-law Kate holding court at her own royal obligations, Harry enjoyed an evening of dancing – fueled by a tasting of local cuisine and rum – at a street party in Belmopan, the nation’s capital.
The royal, 27, met with Sir Colville Young, the governor general of Belize, as he celebrated the unveiling of the freshly minted “Queen Elizabeth II Boulevard.”
On Saturday, Harry is scheduled to meet with school children and their families at an arts center on the Belizean-Guatemalan western border, as well as visit the Belizean Defense Force.
Next on his itinerary: The Bahamas, where he’ll arrive later in the day to meet with a Guard of Honour of the Royal Bahamian Police Force and Band.
