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!

Another great outing. He really is natural with kids. Better him than me with the fish. I would have lost my lunch

It seems a good mix for Harry. Lots of children and interesting nature activities outdoors.
I'm sure the Queen is proud of him and glad it's not her gutting fish.

Everybody seemed very pleased to see Harry, and he was very relaxed with those he met!

It was a bit of a odd tour, with those embarassing comments...

Harry's moved on from Antigua and those embarrassing comments. He's now on the beautiful island of St Kitts.

Harry at the Half Way Tree Primary School at St Kitts, which he wanted to visit as he didn't want the waiting pupils disappointed after a rainstorm sent them indoors, and where he joked around with the pupils and allowed the little ones to play with his beard.

Warner later became Governor of St Kitts, Nevis, Barbados and Monserrat, so he had a fair bit of travelling about to do in those days! He allowed a French settlement on the island in 1625 because he felt sorry for the ship load that were the only survivors of a run-in at sea with the Spanish. What a fascinating history these islands have even if slavery played a part.

Text of speech delivered by Harry on St Kitts for the Queen's Canopy project dedication.

https://mobile.twitter.com/Kensingto...7Ctwgr%5Etweet

Gert's Royals posted that the majority of the media pack arrived at St Kitts thirteen hours late because their plane flew on to the British Virgin Islands. It's quite funny, I can just imagine the panic!
Richard Palmer tweeted something earlier about himself and three colleagues being the only ones present and correct for Harry's arrival on St Kitts!
