Having toured Belize and Jamaica over the past week, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in the Bahamas on Thursday afternoon to honor Queen Elizabeth’s 70-years on the British throne.
The couple was greeted by a little girl and received a ceremonial welcome.
Their tour of the Caribbean has been marked with controversy over the British monarchy’s tie to slavery and colonialism.
There is a growing call for reparations. William while in Jamaica expressed “profound sorrow” at the atrocity of slavery.”
Some believe the Caribbean tour is to persuade island nations to remain with the British monarchy due to some countries choosing to become a republic.
While in the sunny isles, the couple will take part in a sailing regatta, meet with Earthshot prize winners and meet Bahamians at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic.
