His Royal Highness Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the duchess of Cornwall, will arrive on St. Kitts and Nevis for a tour of locations around the Federation this Thursday.
The visit is part of the royal couple’s tour of Caribbean islands which began on March 17.
Prince Charles and Camilla will first visit Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, 46 years after his last visit to the UNESCO World Heritage site where the Prince of Wales will unveil a plaque. Brimstone Hill was built by the British empire and enslaved Africans during the colonial period. It is one of the best-preserved fortresses in the West Indies.
The plaque presentation is part of the permanent placement of the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, a project dedicated to the protection of indigenous forests above 1000 feet. The project was presented to His Royal Highness Prince Harry by His Excellency the Governor General Sir Tapley and unveiled by Prince Harry on November 23, 2016.
