His Royal Highness (HRH) Prince Henry of Wales bade farewell to Barbados today, as his official three-day visit and the penultimate leg of his tour of the Caribbean came to an end.

Prior to boarding a Trans Guyana Airways flight for Guyana at 11:25 a.m., he was greeted at the airport by Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave; Prime Minister Freundel Stuart;  Chairman of the 50th Anniversary of Independence Committee, Senator Maxine McClean; Deputy Chairman, Dr. Esther Byer Suckoo and Chief Justice, Sir Marston Gibson.

Prince Harry, as he’s familiarly known, was in Barbados as a representative of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to mark this island’s 50th Anniversary of Independence celebrations.

Prior to his departure, Prince Harry was treated to a Royal Salute by a 108-strong detachment of the Barbados Defence Force and 30 members of the Royal Barbados Police Band.
