Prince Harry visits Guyana in the midst of its 50th Anniversary of Independence and tries his hand at a new occupation.

Prince Harry’s incredible fortnight in the Caribbean, which crossed 7 countries in 15 days, has come to an end, but not before one last stop at Guyana.

Harry’s visit to Guyana was in the midst of its 50th Anniversary of Independence. The fourth smallest country in South America, Guyana’s rich ecosystem is making its mark across the globe as a major ecotourism destination.

Prince Harry was greeted by President David Granger in the Capital, Georgetown, where he travelled to Camp Ayanganna, the headquarters of the Guyana Defence Force.

After a busy day, Harry was greeted by the indigenous community of Surama village, stopping to teach a few lessons with the local schoolchildren before heading to Kaieteur Falls, the largest free-fall waterfall in the world.

 

On the final day of Harry’s Caribbean  tour, he finished with a trip to Joshua House Children’s Centre, in the centre of Georgetown.

The charity is currently home to more than 70 boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 12 and aims to protect and support children who “find themselves in unfortunate circumstances”. The children are given daily lessons, access to computers and libraries, and taught important skills.

Prince Harry spent the day hearing first-hand how this charity has helped the children in its care.
