More misery on William and Kate's Caribbean trip – after major Jamaica snub

Date:


At the official ceremony, Prince Charles acknowledged the “appalling atrocity of slavery” the island had suffered.

With Jamaica marking its 60th anniversary of becoming an independent nation in August, an open letter has said the royal visit was of “great concern”.

According to Nadine White, Independent race correspondent, the letter states: “We see no reason to celebrate 70 years of the ascension of your grandmother to the British throne because her leadership, and that of her predecessors, has perpetuated the greatest human rights tragedy in the history of humankind.”

The letter adds: “We note with great concern your visit to our country Jamaica, during a period when we are still in the throes of a global pandemic and bracing for the full impact of another global crisis associated with the Russian/Ukraine war.”
