Protesters call for end to colonialism as Prince Edward and Sophie continue Caribbean tour

Protesters demanded the end of colonialism when the Earl and Countess Of Wessex embarked on the second leg their Caribbean tour.

Edward and Sophie were met by about 15 people with banners that said “reparation”, “compensation”, and “down with Neocoloialism” upon their arrival at Government House in St Vincent and Grenadines.

The Royal Family was warned not to visit Grenada before the tour started.

The Antigua and Barbuda Reparation Support Commission wrote in an open letter that it was “common for members the Royal Family and representatives from the government of Britain” to travel to the region and lament that slavery had been an ‘appalling horror’, that it was an ‘abhorrent, and that it’should not have happened”.


The letter stated that the “stain on your past” was due to the false sanctimony of those who had come before you.

This follows the recent visit of the Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge to the region. He and Kate were charged with benefiting from the “blood and tears and sweat” of slaves. They were met by protestors calling for reparations from Britain’s monarchy.

Edward and Sophie received their second red carpet, and guard of honor, before the protest. They had just landed in St Vincent and Grenadines.

While Bob Marley’s One Love was being played on steel drums, Scouts, Girl Guides and Cadets waved their national flags while cadets and cadets waved it.

Edward visited the island’s national stadium, where he met with athletes training for the Birmingham Commonwealth Games. Sophie went to a college while Edward went on to a community college.

They were also to plant a tree at the botanical gardens to commemorate the Queen’s 70th year as monarch.
