A speaker of the Royal House made clear that still there is outlined the agenda of the visit, which would include stops both in Jamaica and in Trinidad and Tobago.

My father will be attending the Pensacola activities, I believe. If I find out anything, I'll certainly let everyone here know.

I'm only 5 hours away and can't go see them.

Hopefully there will be good press coverage.

Cool

I just caught a bit of our local tv news and apparently at the food festival chef Mario Batali dropped the f word several times in front of their Majesties and other distinguished guests in the audience, Queen Sofia reportedly was quite pale at this outburst. If true, I'm very embarrassed for my country for this crass display. Does any other member have the story? Thank you.
I forgot to add the chef appeared to be drunk.
