In 2010, he made an official trip to Barbados – whose Prime Minister Freundel Stuart has since said he intends to remove the Queen as the island’s head of state –, but this will be his first official visit to the other countries.
The trip will coincide with Barbados and Guyana marking their 50th Anniversary of Independence, as well as the 35th Anniversary of Independence for Antigua and Barbuda.
Full details of the visit will be confirmed in due course, the Kensington Palace statement said.
