Prince Harry To Tour The Bahamas Coastal Waters

Prince Harry will take to the waters around the Bahamas on Sunday to learn about the work of the country's military as he begins the next leg of his Diamond Jubilee tour.

The royal will join the crew of a Royal Bahamian Defence Force boat for a maritime security exercise that will last several hours.

The third-in-line to the throne is a newly qualified Apache helicopter pilot and the experience will allow him to spend time, mostly in private, with fellow servicemen, learning more about their work.

Harry flew to the country in his chartered jet yesterday after completing a tour of Belize in honour of the Queen's 60-year reign.

His day will begin like all royal foreign visits that cover a weekend with a visit to church.

The royal will attend a thanksgiving service to mark his grandmother's Diamond Jubilee, joining the governor general Sir Arthur Foulkes and much of the Bahamian government at the place of worship.

Following the ecumenical service the Prince will tour an open-air photographic exhibition at Nassau's central Rawson Square and deliver a speech.

The display chronicles the life of the monarch, who is the Queen of the Bahamas, and her family's long links to the islands.
