After growing tension in Belize and a slight change in plans, Prince William and Kate arrived in Belize, greeted by the national guard. This begins the 8-day tour of three Caribbean countries–Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas.
Changes were made to their schedule when villagers protested the royal couple’s visitation to a coca farm which is in a tug of war with Fauna and Flora International, of which William is a patron.
Villagers were also angry that Prince William’s plane was planned to land on a field within their community.
Belize media reports that despite the controversy, the couple was greeted warmly when they arrived in the country on Saturday afternoon.
