Prince Edward, the Queen’s youngest son, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex are visiting Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Antigua and Barbuda for the same reason that Prince William and Kate Middleton went on their visit — to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, per People. They were set to visit Grenada as well. However, one day before they left, it was announced that they’d be bypassing the country In a statement from Buckingham Palace. The decision to postpone the Grenada visit came after discussions with the Grenadian government, per Independent. No more official context has been given for the postponement at this time.

Prince Edward and Sophie are also facing similar calls for slavery reparations as Prince William and Kate did. At an event in Antigua and Barbuda, the Prime Minister noted that Prince Edward should “use your diplomatic influence in achieving the reparatory justice that we seek,” via People. There was also an open letter from Antigua and Barbuda Reparations Support Commission asking for apologies for the UK’s role in the Atlantic slave trade and calling their trip a “‘goodwill-don’t-leave-us’ tour,” according to Geo News. The couple are also under fire for the gift they gave to the Saint Lucian prime minister. It was reportedly a framed and signed photo of themselves, according to Newsweek.
