Diamond Jubilee: Royal Family Plan ‘World Tour’ To Mark Queen’s 60-Year Reign

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 14, 2011

The Royal Family will mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee by touring the globe in celebration, Buckingham Palace has announced.

Senior royals will visit the Queen’s 15 realms – nations where the sovereign is head of state – major Commonwealth countries, and other destinations with close links to the UK next year.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s trip to Malaysia, Singapore, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu on behalf of the Queen is likely to attract the most interest.

Tuvalu has not had a major royal visit in decades and William and Kate are likely to bring the tiny South Pacific islands to a standstill.

When the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh toured the remote nation in 1982, they were carried shoulder high by islanders into the capital Funafuti as they sat in canoes.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will travel to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea as part of the celebrations while Prince Harry will tour Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas.

Harry’s overseas visit will be his first solo trip on behalf of the Queen and may see him use it as an opportunity to stage a fundraising polo match on behalf of his Sentebale charity.

The host countries are likely to stage a range of events for the visiting royals to mark the Queen’s 60-year reign, from official banquets and public celebrations to events that showcase the individual nations.

The Queen and Philip will remain in the UK for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations but make an extensive tour of every region supported by the Royal Family.

The Queen will be 86 in April and the Duke, who turns 91 next year, has already publicly stated he is reducing his workload.

Argentina Brands Prince William’s Posting To Falkland Islands A ‘Provocative’ Act

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 12, 2011

The Duke of Cambridge’s posting to the Falkland Islands has been branded a “provocative act” in Argentina.

William, a Flight Lieutenant with the RAF, will be deployed to the remote outcrop in the South Atlantic for six weeks to fly search and rescue helicopter missions next year.

But Argentine official Sebastian Brugo Marco said the country could not ignore the “political” implications of his move, which comes shortly before the 30th anniversary of Argentina’s defeat in the Falklands War.

Mr Brugo Marco, who has responsibility for the South Atlantic territory, told Argentine newspaper La Nacion: “It is one more provocative act that shows Britain’s military presence in a zone of peace where there is no armed conflict.”

Argentina still claims sovereignty over the islands, which it refers to as Las Malvinas. “One cannot ignore the political content of this military operation bearing in mind that the prince forms part of the Royal Family,” Mr Brugo Marco added.
