Kate Middleton and Prince William meet are currently on tour eight days in the Caribbean. And while they can enjoy diaphanous suns and white sands, they also miss their three children: Prince George, 8 years old, the princess charlotte, 6, and little Louis, 3 years old. The children await them in London in the company of their official nanny, María Borallo.
But it is not that they are eight days in which they completely ignore their family, but that the parents make video calls whenever they can. In addition, Prince William recounted George’s sweet custom to follow his parents while they are away.
He did so during a reception held to mark the queen’s Platinum Jubilee at the Mayan ruins of Cahal Pech. There, the Duke of Cambridge told the guests that his eldest son is always interested in knowing different parts of the world. “We tell them where in the world we are and he finds us on the map, sticks a pin in it, and then shares it with others,” William said.
The couple met with community leaders, well-known Belizeans and members of the government, in the presence of the Prime Minister, Jhonny Brienco. They were also greeted by British and Belizean soldiers who work together in the British Army’s Jungle Training Support Unit.
In their latest social media post, the princes thanked the welcome: “Catherine and I are delighted to be here in Belize at the start of our first official visit to the Caribbean. I have the honor to convey the warmest wishes of my grandmother, the Queen of Belize, on the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee. In our short time here, Catherine and I have been fortunate to witness some of the extraordinary biodiversity that they so lovingly nurture here in their jungles and reefs. In addition to this environmental diversity, yesterday we also got a taste of Belize’s wonderful cultural diversity, from Mayan chocolate to Garifuna drums. And yes, you even made us dance!”
For the 39-year-old heir to the throne, it was a return visit. He was already there for a year with a specialized unit in 2000 at the beginning of his gap year, before university. He also took the opportunity to chat with his former academy sergeant major at Sanhurst, who now heads the jungle unit.
William and Kate spent more than an hour and a half taking a crash course in survival skills and learning from British soldiers, almost all of whom spend six to eight weeks in that Belizean jungle as part of their training.
The Cambridges will now fly to Jamaica, the next stop on their Caribbean tour, and receive an official welcome to the country.
