As part of the Royal Family plan, Prince Harry also referred to as The Happy Prince, will visit Belize and other Caribbean countries. Queen Elizabeth II, monarch and her husband Prince Phillip will confine themselves to visits around Britain.

Prince Harry globetrotting to Belize

There is an official royal visit in the making; these occasions are usually planned well in advance and executed with high protocol. The British royal family will embark on a global tour in 2012 as part of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. The announcement went viral today and according to a report in the United Kingdom’s Daily Mail online news, senior royals will visit all fifteen realms where the Queen is head of state, major Commonwealth countries and other nations with close links to the UK. Prince Harry is heading to the Jewel; he will be making his first solo trip overseas on the Queen’s behalf. Aside from Belize, Prince Harry will also be making stops in Jamaica and the Bahamas. Another highlight of the global tour will be a visit by Prince William and Kate Middleton to the island of Tuvalu, which sits off the coast of Australia. The island has not been visited by royals since 1982 and is now at risk of disappearing within the next fifty years due to rising sea levels. The last official royal visit to Belize was by Princess Ann in 2001, but we do note that Prince William visited the Jewel with BATSUB but it was not an official visit.

Prince Harry cometh to Queen’s state, Belize, in 2012

The British Monarchy has made a formal announcement on its official website that Prince Harry, 27, the younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana and grandson of the Queen of England, is due to visit Belize in 2012.

The news of the royal visit to the country where, although Independent since 1981, the Queen of England, Elizabeth II, remains the Head of State, has created a buzz in international and local media circles.

The Monarchy issued a statement on its Diamond Jubilee Programme this week, detailing both regional and overseas visits.

Commemorative events such as tours, pageants, concerts and parades, will mark the Queen’s diamond jubilee, marking the passage of 60 years in her reign. Born in 1926, Elizabeth II, 85, successor to King George VI, ascended to the throne at the age of 25. She is Head of State of the UK and 15 other Commonwealth realms.

Elizabeth has been married to Philip the Duke of Edinburgh, 90, for 64 years and they have four children: Charles (born 1948), the heir apparent to the throne, Anne (1950), Andrew (1960), and Edward (1964)—the last two born during her reign.

In a statement released by the Queen’s press secretary, it is noted that apart from tours in 2012 across the UK, including England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, beginning in late March, “members of the Royal Family [including the Queen’s children, grandchildren and their spouses] will travel overseas representing The Queen throughout the Diamond Jubilee year, visiting every Realm, as well as undertaking visits to Commonwealth countries, Crown Dependencies and British Overseas Territories.” (Belize is a Commonwealth nation within the British monarchical system.)

The official statement details the persons who will be the Queen’s emissaries overseas.

It informs that Prince Harry will travel to Belize then Jamaica then The Bahamas.

Prince Edward and his wife, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, are slated to visit Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Gibraltar, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.

Charles the Prince of Wales, Queen Elizabeth’s son and the former husband of Diana, is due to visit Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea, with Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall, his second wife. Prince Charles will additionally be traveling to Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

William the Duke of Cambridge, the elder son of Charles and Diana, is due to travel with his wife, Catherine, to Malaysia, Singapore, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu.

Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, should be travelling to the Falkland Islands and Uganda; while the Princess Royal, Anne Elizabeth, the Queen’s daughter, is to visit Mozambique and Zambia.

Richard the Duke of Gloucester should be touring the British Virgin Islands and Malta next year.

Finally, Andrew, the Duke of York, the Queen’s son, is to visit India.

Prince Harry Captures The Jewel Of The Caribbean

Britain's Prince Henry of Wales, better known as Prince Harry, the younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana is scheduled to visit Belize for two days in March.

The 27 year old Prince who is the fourth grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II, Belize's Head of State, is expected to arrive in the country on March 2nd.

Though it was officially leaked some time ago, the official announcement of Prince Harry's visit to the country came in the form of a press release from St. James Palace dated TODAY, January 19th, 2012. According to the release, the Prince's official itinerary will be announced at a further date, however, it's expected that much of his stay will be spent in the Cayo District.

The release says Prince Harry will visit Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas on behalf of the Queen as part of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee celebrations scheduled for March 2nd thru March 8th.

Unlike his older brother, Prince William who has paid a visit to Belize, Prince Harry has never visited the country before.
