Prince Harry has embarked on his first royal engagement overseas since confirming the news of his romance with girlfriend Meghan Markle!

While the Suits actress has since returned to set to finish filming season six of the hit show, Harry touched down in Antigua on Sunday, November 20, to kick off his tour of the Caribbean.

Marking the beloved royal’s second time in the tropical sub-continent, Harry is in the Caribbean for the 35th Anniversary of Independence in Antigua and Barbuda and the 50th Anniversary of Independence in Barbados and Guyana on behalf of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Expected to join in on the celebrations is Barbadian superstar Rihanna!

Harry will visit seven countries in total, Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Barbados and Guyana.

“Prince Harry holds special memories of his last visit to the Caribbean, and of the warmth, friendliness and sense of fun that comes so naturally to this region,” a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said in a statement.

“His Royal Highness is greatly looking forward to meeting more of the people who call it home, and for the opportunity during this tour to be visiting some countries for the first time.”

“This visit will allow Prince Harry to experience more of the unique and individual cultures and traditions of these special Commonwealth Realms and countries. His Royal Highness is grateful to have the chance to visit nations that play such important roles in the Commonwealth, and have extended such warmth to his family for many years.”

From dabbing, cuddling and lots of laughs – Prince Harry has well and truly won over the locals on day two of the royal tour of the Caribbean!

Prince Harry was the life of the party as he visited a youth sports festival at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Monday, November 21.

Although the event was filled with cricket legends such as Sir Vivian Richards, Sir Curtly Ambrose and Sir Andy Roberts – it was the local children that the Prince formed a strong bond with.

Always down for a bit of fun, the fifth-in-line to the British throne showed off his dance skills with the famous dab move.
