Royals at Sybil Strachan Primary



NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Heavy rain wasn’t enough to stop activities planned to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Friday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got the day started with a special assembly at Sybil Strachan Primary School. This as students were addressed by the Duchess herself.

Berthony Mcdermott was there.

At 10:38 Friday morning, the motorcade carrying the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge arrived at Sybil Strachan Primary School for a special assembly there.

The Royals were greeted by the schools principal, other senior education officials, and students.

The rain wasn’t enough to stop eager students from giving the Royals a taste of Bahamian culture through song.

They also took some time to talk to some fifth graders.

In her first official visit to The Bahamas, her Royal Highness Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton reminisced on what she said was one of the hardest things about the pandemic, being separated from loved ones and friends.

She reminded students that its the simplest things that bring the most joy.

She also advised them to be kind to themselves and others.

Education Minister Glenys Hanna-Martin welcomed the Royals with these kind words.

Before leaving, the couple was presented with a painting of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the second and two books written by Bahamian students.

As the Prince is a major supporter of the fight against climate change, the Royals planted a tree on the schools campus before leaving for the next event.

High Commissioner to Caricom Leslie Miller Brice was instrumental in planning this event.
