I am having a fantastic time following this tour. I enjoyed his Asian one but I think this is the first tour I have followed all the way of any royals

I love the picture of him with the parrot and the comments

Again great photos of him with the kids. And whether drinking coconut water or playing cricket, or talking with locals, he is so engaged.

I love the environmental goals outlined, the new nature projects in the queen's name, such a good initiative and happy Harry is there bringing attention to it.

There is just something I've come to expect when following Harry on a royal tour to anywhere and that is that he'll not disappoint and this tour of the Caribbean is no exception. He really does get into whatever he is doing or wherever he is visiting. I'm totally not surprised that he'd get up close and personal with a parrot, drink out of a coconut and even his lodgings and meals are just so Harry. One thing I have come to realize about Harry is that he doesn't ever demand preferential treatment from anybody. He's the kind of guy that can be happy and fit in no matter where he is and that is what endears him to me. Rather than be treated as he is something special because he is royal, it is him that makes those around him feel special.

I do have to attest to the fact that parrots can be very, very loud. I've always wanted an African Grey parrot and should I get one, it'd be a short trip to a divorce court as my hubby has super sensitive hearing (now I know where my missing hearing abilities went) and the noise would drive him over the edge.

It's a good job your husband doesn't live near us, Osipi. There are flocks of Major Mitchell cockatoos that gather in the trees. Their cawing is absolutely raucous!

Harry is presented with a painting of himself.

Incidentally, what is with the one suit and tie that is conspicuous on this tour? I distinctly remember a couple of light linen suits worn by Harry in Jamaica and Belize during the Diamond Jubilee tour. One was in a light tan shade, and the other a stone colour. Why didn't Harry bring them on this tour? They would have been ideal. Richard Palmer said the sweat was running off Harry the other day. I think this man needs a stylist and one of his father's valets.

Things are apparently sweet again with the RN ship and Harry will soon be landing. He was taken off by cutter to have lunch on an island near St Vincent so they must have really made up some time.

There was the Meghan honeymoon thing by PM Browne the papers made a big thing of, and Harry having to join in a minute's silence for Fidel, which they didn't, but apart from that, nothing really. They sped the ship's repairs along so he's pretty well on time for Grenada.

I find the tour becoming somewhat repetitive. Harry's doing his best but the itinerary is stale.

Inspect honour guard, take in nature, play some sports, and the obligatory interacting with children.

Plus there is another week of this. Wash, rinse, repeat.

I agree Rudolph, nothing new and nothing too exciting either.

That's hardly Harry's fault. In the smaller islands the itinerary is set by the PMs and Governor Generals. Even then there have been some very cute moments!

Barbados and Guyana will contain some different stuff. Visiting village elders in the hinterland, magnificent waterfall, hike, Rhianna concert etc.

I would imagine that by now it is perhaps starting to take a toll on Harry with doing the same things over and over again each place he goes but I'm sure that he realizes that for the communities of each place, its new and special for them and that's what he keeps at the forefront of his mind. If anyone can find reasons to be outgoing and friendly and enjoy where he is regardless how much he'd rather be somewhere else, its Harry. He's really a "make the best of where you are" kind of a person.

The people of each island Harry's been to have been glad to see him and have greeted him warmly. It's not stale to them and he puts his best food forward each time. He's had some good repartee with the crowds, stopped to greet children in the rain when he needn't have, and still looks as if he's enjoying it all and is interested, as with the coral preservation project.

The St Lucia Times take on Harry's visit!

Good points Osipi and IMHO most royal goodwill tours are very similar to this one. And as Curryong pointed out the various nations issue the invitations and create the itinerary to showcase highlights and areas of need in their countries. The royals receive the invitations and can adapt to the itinerary to meet with local representatives of their patronages or military units.

When looking at royal tours in this respect and seeing how they can be very repetitious and each day seems like the day before with the same things going on with just different people, it really makes you shake your head at the thinking of "commentators" and "observers" that see these tours as "royal vacations to a warm climate" kind of thinking. It actually, for the most part, is work on the royal's part and dagnabit, Harry does always look like he's having the time of his life doesn't he?
