ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, November 27, 2016 – GIS: Day 9 - Grenada
The fifth country Prince Harry will visit while on his Caribbean tour will be Grenada on Monday 28th November. After an official arrival and welcome at Grenada Cruise Port, His Royal Highness will travel to Queens Park Grounds to attend a community sporting event. This local sports field is home to a number of community cricket and football teams, who practice there year round. Prince Harry will have the opportunity to meet and engage with some of the young players, and the inspiring figures who volunteer their time to help coach them.
That afternoon, Prince Harry will visit Grand Anse Beach/Coconut Beach, one of Grenada's most beautiful beaches. Here, His Royal Highness will hear about the devastating impact climate change has had on the Caribbean
environment, and the steps organisations like the Environmental Division and other institutions are taking to repair and protect their precious eco-system. His Royal Highness will firstly see the how coral gardeners from the Coral Restoration Project are rebuilding the coral reef and encouraging plants and coral to flourish in the Grenadian seas again. Prince Harry will then see how Grenada is also restoring its mangroves, an important part of the country's eco-system, which were destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004.
Prince Harry's last engagements of the day will be a meeting with the Prime Minister, Dr. the Right Honourable Keith Mitchell, prior to attending a reception hosted by the Governor General, Her Excellency Dame Cecile La Grenade.
