A lovely gesture by Harry to lie down and give a severely disabled girl a hug, and good on Richard Palmer for Tweeting it. Thanks for posting this Osipi.

Harry was a hit with the West Indian cricketers!

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news...4cde35a9c01129

Richard Palmer has tweeted that Harry went Beetroot red when the Antiguan PM Mr Browne said at the evening official dinner that he believed that a new princess can be expected and invited Harry and his bride to honeymoon on Antigua! Sometimes local politicians don't have a filter between brain and mouth! However, I'm sure Harry will get over it, and probably laughed it off in private. The PM was only trying to be nice, but discreet he was not!

This is what the press was hoping for.

Quote:
In front of over 300 guests, the Prime Minister, Gaston Browne, made Harry grimace and look at his feet as he told the audience: "I believe we are expecting a new Princess soon.

"I want you to know that you are very welcome to come on your honeymoon here."

Harry fiddled with his shirt to avoid eye contact as the PM spoke.

But he was further embarrassed when Mr Browne teased him again just as he was due to meet six of the country's beauty queens. "Whatever is done here, stays here. So do not worry," he joked.

Of course the media are delighted, it gives a headline. Nevertheless, Faux pas or no, I'm sure Harry got over it! The PM was just trying to be nice, even if his mouth was running away from his brain.

Harry wasn't a happy camper. This from the Telegraph

The Prince, who has so far been in a good mood throughout his visit, appeared unamused by the prime minister's laddish jokes, and refused to pose for a picture with reigning Miss Antigua and Barbuda Leanda Norville.

Well, Harry's not responsible for jokey local politicians. I still think the PM meant no harm. I think it's quite amusing, but Harry will get over this little faux pas by the PM.

It's hardly an international diplomatic incident of monumental proportions, is it? If that's the worst he faces the rest of the tour will be a doddle.

I think Harry understood the little joke. He's a prankster himself you know.

I'm sure that any embarrassment on either the PM's side or Harry's will pass and it'll be as the Windsors's love to say "keep calm and carry on".

It has to be frustrating for Harry (and Meghan too) that just because these two people decided that they enjoy being with each other that their relationship has gone so viral and the only place they can most likely get away from and out of the public eye it would be a trip to the space station.

It's not Harry's place to speak on this though. Too much of a political football.

Who cares...? The majority of the people are happy he has come.

Such people always use a royal visit to try and promote their pet-grievance.
364 days a year no one will listen to them, but during this visit everything that is remotely connected to Harry will get air-time. So they should be pretty delighted and thus Harry has done something for them as well.

Did the PM try to jokingly pimp out the beauty queens to Harry?! I'm not envious of these awkward meetings at all.

The PM said something like 'Whatever happens stays here' (and doesn't get out in scandal like Vegas was the subtext, I suppose.) However, Harry didn't take the bait, didn't dance with them or near them and refused to be photographed next to any of them. They took it in good part though, I believe. One of them said he was a gentleman. I think Harry was glad it was all over though, and he can get on with something else next day.

Spectacular scenery there on Barbuda. Was secretly hoping that it was Bermuda and that Harry would oblige his fans by donning a pair of their trademark shorts!



Lovely to see him pay tribute to his grandparents' latest wedding anniversary.

Perhaps Harry ate that fish he was gutting for his lunch! (I'm sure he's seen fish gutted before though, probably at Balmoral.)

I do wonder whether he remembered holidaying at Baruda with his mother and brother all those years ago, and hope they were pleasant memories.

The media missed out on a perfect follow up to the "faux pas" of the day before with hints for honeymoons and beauty queens with not using the heading "Harry chats up the birds" as he toured the mangroves. If I remember right, "chatting up the birds" is/was a very British expression to the American one of "cruising for chicks".

Harry never ever disappoints when children are involved and this tour is no exception. Kids are naturally drawn to this guy and he always gets down to their level which I think endears him to them.

Can I just salute this man who is willing to gut and pan prep a fish in front of cameras?
My family fishes northern waters mostly for panfish which are plentiful, tender and sweet. Our preferred method is to fillet the lil buggers, which takes a deft hand, and then freeze them solid in spring fed lake water. And it takes hours and hours because our fish are so relatively small. But in the middle of winter, these fish are a godsend of fresh, flavorful delight! In the summer, after we catch them, they are often a communal feast prepared with friendship and beer on the lawn.
It's a great gift for someone who knows how to prep fish to show you how. It's a touch and feel process - far exceeding any other work I do with my hands. It's good to see Harry at this. And hats off to the local who showed him how.
But it is fun to see how cultures that eat the fish they catch are so much alike, even if they are so far apart!
