Prince Harry is currently undertaking an official visit to the Caribbean on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, and met Rihanna at a Toast to the Nation Event in Bridgetown, Barbados.


Harry’s visit marks the 50th anniversary of the independence of Barbados and Guyana, as well as the 35th anniversary of the independence of Antigua and Barbuda. Rihanna was present to celebrate her home country’s independence day and the pair greeted and shook hands.

This occurred on the Prince’s 10th day of his tour of a total of 14 days. This is Harry’s second official visit to the Caribbean, and at the end, will have visited seven countries. The goal of the visit is to participate in official ceremonies and meetings with other governments, as well as work with local figures and national events. He attended a youth sports festival in Antigua, went bird watching, and participated in a botanical garden dedication ceremony.

The morning before meeting Rihanna, Harry met with sick children at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown.

Even the Queen took part in the Barbados festivities on Twitter.
