On the late afternoon of Saturday, March 19, 2022 Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the Phillip S. W. Goldson International Airport in Belize to begin their three-day visit to the beautiful country in celebration of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.
Upon their arrival, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were warmly greeted by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Immigration, Her Excellency Amalia Mai, and the Governor-General Her Excellency Froyla Tzalam. Thereafter, the national anthem of Belize was performed whilst His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge inspected the Belize Defense Force (BDF).
Moments later The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were introduced to the Governor-General of Belize’s husband, Mr. Daniel Mendez, and the British High Commissioner in Belize.
After departing the Phillip S. W. Goldson International Airport, Their Royal Highnesses arrived at the Laing House in Belize City where they met with the Prime Minister of Belize, Mr. John Antonio Briceño, and his wife, Mrs. Rossana Briceño.
Thereafter, the amazing royal couple visited Hopkins Village in eastern Belize.
While many royal watchers are waiting for Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to arrive in beautiful Belize to kick start their Caribbean tour, I thought now would be a brilliant time to post a royal documentary.
Anyway, here is the royal documentary entitled, Princess Alexandra: The Queen’s Best Friend.

According to the Norwegian royal court, His Majesty and The Crown Prince toured the:
“…hotel and how it was able to adapt to the current situation. Several of the hotel’s conference rooms and common areas have been converted into, among other things, a health station, playroom, and dressing room. In the playroom, children can, among other things, draw, play and play table tennis. The Norwegian Red Cross is among the organizations present with volunteers at the reception.”
During their visit, King Harald V and Crown Prince Haakon met with various Ukrainian refugees who told their stories about how they fled their homeland.
