ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The Prince of Wales, Charles Phillip Arthur George, will visit Antigua and Barbuda, British Virgin Islands, and Dominica this weekend.

His Royal Highness's visit comes following the widespread devastation in the region caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

During the tour The Prince of Wales will meet members of the local communities and hear about the ways in which they have been recovering since the storms hit the Islands.

The Prince of Wales will arrive in Antigua and Barbuda on Friday November 17, 2017 conducting engagements on the island of Antigua that day. His Royal Highness will visit Barbuda and the British Virgin Islands on Saturday November 18. On the final day of the tour, Sunday November 19, The Prince will conduct engagements in Dominica.

    The Prince should have come couple days after the hurricanes to see the actual damages not two months after as most of the clean up has taken place and the BVI is starting to look like the BVI I know. To Prince Charles I say welcome to nature's little secret that hurricanes Irma & Maria discovered before you.

      your moniker KKK is offensive no matter what point you are trying to make. It's like calling yourself the N-word. It's bound to offend somebody. Be more civil and sensitive please.
