ST JOHN'S, Antigua and Barbuda — Britain's Prince Harry is launching a 14-day Caribbean tour, arriving at his first stop in Antigua aboard a commercial flight.

The prince is visiting the Caribbean representing Queen Elizabeth II in the year of her 90 birthday. The year also marks the 35th anniversary of independence for Antigua and Barbuda and the 50th anniversary for Barbados and Guyana.

Governor-general Sir Rodney Williams and other local leaders gave the prince a red-carpet welcome.

Harry is scheduled to visit charities and historic sites as well as hobnobbing with local celebrities and cultural figures.

Also on the schedule are stops in Barbados, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Guyana.
