With his brother stuck on a six-week stint in the Falklands, Prince Harry hopped between Belize, The Bahamas, Jamaica and Brazil repping Queen Elizabeth for her Jubilee year. We give the details of his itinerary and show you where to stay to feel royal just like the redheaded Windsor.
Belize: Here, the Prince spent the night at Chaa Creek, a 365-acre nature reserve in the foothills of the Mayan Mountains. According to press release, he slept in a tree top suite and enjoyed a classic Maya dinner of Kac’kick and the resort’s signature Mojitos (of course he did). The next day it was an in-room massage and big-boy English breakfast. He visited nearby Xunantunich and climbed El Castillo with its views of Macal River Valley and Guatemala.
Bahamas: During his time here he dined with second cousin and bridesmaid to Princess Diana in ’81, India Hicks, The Telegraph reports. Harry too made a stop at Harbour Island, which is where the Hicks-owned hotel The Landing is located. The seven-room boutique property is light, low-key luxury, and its ground-floor restaurant is known for a fresh menu and fine wines.
Jamaica: Hot Harry stayed at Half Moon, A RockResort in Montego Bay. He was a jerk… chicken eater who charmed the staff. We found out from People Magazine, that he stayed in a five-bedroom, two-level villa replete with private pool and waitstaff. Apparently it’s not the first time this resort has hosted royalty. Take advantage of the property’s golf course, 13 tennis courts and 50-some-odd swimming pools, even if you aren’t third in line to England’s throne.
Brazil: The final leg of his trip had the prince seeing Sugar Loaf Mountain and playing beach volleyball and rugby on Rio de Janeiro’s Flamengo beach. Although not confirmed, there were rumors he was to stay at Copacabana Palace. The historic beachside hotel not far from Flamengo has played host to many names, like rock ‘n’ roll royalty The Rolling Stones. While Harry’s schedule was packed, yours can be as simple as walk, coconut, beach, pool (see: travel writer Julie Falconer’s Copacabana plan).
