Their Royal Highnesses Prince and Princess Edward, Earl and Countess of Wessex.

Their Royal Highnesses Prince and Princess Edward, Earl and Countess of Wessex will visit St. Lucia on February 21, 2012 on their first stop as part of the celebrations to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The couple will participate in the Independence Day Parade to mark the countryís 33rd independence celebrations. They are also expected to attend a cultural dance performance, receptions hosted by the islandís Governor-General and Prime Minister, visit the Association of St. Lucia Headquarters and the St. Lucia School of Music.

From St Lucia the couple will travel to Barbados during February 23 -24, where the government is spending more than Bds$0.5 million to fix up Government House and meet expenses for the official state visit.

Other countries in the Eastern Caribbean to be visited by the couple include Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad & Tobago, Montserrat, St Kitts, Anguilla and Antigua.

In what some has referred to as a Royal snub, Dominica has not been included as part of the celebrations to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
