During their journey through former British colonies in Central America, Queen’s grandchildren must meet Prince William (39) and his wife Duchess Kate (40) prepare for further protests against the monarchy. In Jamaica, an alliance of politics, business, entertainment and medicine is demanding compensation for slavery and an apology from the royal family and announced a demonstration this Tuesday when the couple travels to the Caribbean island.
Protests against William and Kate are also expected in Jamaica
William and Kate are on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II (95) who is celebrating her 70th anniversary of the throne this year. “We see no reason to celebrate the 70th anniversary of your grandmother’s accession to the British throne because under her leadership and that of her predecessors the greatest human rights tragedy in human history continued,” the British newspaper The Independent quoted on Monday from the letter of protest. Jamaica played a key role as a hub for the slave trade of British entrepreneurs, and numerous descendants of forced laborers live on the island today. The country will celebrate the 60th anniversary of its independence in 2022.
