On March 05, 2012 in Belize
Prince Harry arrived on his private jet into Philip Goldson Airport on Friday 2nd March! And, for us here in Belize, the weekend was all about Harry!! Greeting him on the tarmac was Hon Dean Barrow, Francis Fonseca and The Govenor General Sir Coleville Young.
Within hours of his arrival, Prince Harry was furiously driven to Belmopan for a fun fueled evening of drinking and dancing – something that the Prince clearly approved of!! There were the usual ceremonies, speeches but all very much in accordance with Harry’s more informal character – his ‘Unu come, mek we go paati’ melting the hearts of the Belizean audience!!
The following day commenced with visiting the OAS Adjancency Zone and then moving to the Maya ruin Xunantunich where he scaled 130ft El Castilo temple. He was treated to a fashion show by environmentalist/fashion designer Joris Hendrick and christened a canoe being sponsored by the British High Commission for this years up coming Ruta Maya. He finished his tour on Saturday afternoon by visiting Price Barracks and BATSUB.
And then he was gone, leaving us with photos and memories – come back Prince Harry, there is so much more of Belize you have yet to discover … I think he would like it here, don’t you??
