Prince Harry’s Caribbean Tour Ruffles Some Feathers
Prince Harry has set off on a Diamond Jubilee Caribbean Tour on behalf of his grandmother, the Queen of England. His trip will take him to the shores of Belize, the Bahamas, Jamaica and Brazil, but not everyone is clamoring with excitement to catch a glimpse of the royal.
Verene Shepherd, professor of history at the University of the West Indies, told Sky News: "In 1962 we had a kind of political separation. But decolonization is not complete and Britain needs to make amends. There has been no settlement of the debt owed for the capture, enslavement and brutality of British on Jamaicans and our ancestors, and so I'm sorry, I object.”
