It was a picturesque scene to witness their royal highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall walking along the world renowned Grand Anse Beach, as they completed their royal visit to Grenada.
First received by governor general Dame Cecil La Grenade at the Maurice Bishop International Airport, the Prince and Duchess were officially welcomed at the Parliament building before meeting with Grenada’s Prime Minster Dr. Keith Mitchell.
Minister for Health and international business, Nickolas Steele, highlights on the importance of the Royal Visit to Grenada.
He says any significant visit that draws attention to the challenges and success of a country is always looked forward to.
‘It gives us the opportunity to speak to the various issues that we are dealing with’ the Minister said.
On completion of the reception at the Parliament terrace, the prince planted a tree near the driveway at Old Government House before visiting the House of Chocolate on Young Street.
Minister Steele says the visit gives Grenada the opportunity to speak to something they are mutually passionate about – climate change.
The royal visit then moved unto the Carenage for a farmers market, before completing the tour on Grand Anse beach in a Blue Economy Roundtable at Spice Island Beach Resort and an Exhibition at Mount Cinnamon.
From Grenada, the couple moved on to Cuba, a country royals have not visited in over 50 years.
