Kate Middleton and Prince William pay tribute to victims of 185mph hurricane on final day of their Caribbean tour


KATE Middleton and Prince William paid tribute to the victims of a violent hurricane during the last day of their Caribbean tour.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited a church in the Bahamas that was rebuilt after the original building was destroyed by 185mph Hurricane Dorian in 2019.

The hurricane swept across the chain of islands and damaged 75 per cent of homes and resulted in lives being lost.

Kate and Wills visited the Daystar Evangelical Church in Great Abaco, in the north of the country and learned about the devastating impact the hurricane had as well as seeing how communities are still being rebuilt more than two years on.

As part of their visit they will also go to a Memorial Wall to commemorate the victims and meet locals to learn how they coped in difficult conditions when the hurricane struck.

The couple will then fly to Grand Bahama to speak to youngsters at the island's children's home.

They will finish their trip at Coral Vita who won £1million in Prince William's Earthshot Prize.

Kate was seen wearing a £254 Rixo pink midi gown for the occasion while Wills opted for a casual navy blue suit and light blue shirt.

Earlier in the tour, Prince William said he supported and respected any decision Caribbean nations make about their future, as Belize, the Bahamas and Jamaica consider cutting their ties with the British monarchy.

"Next year, I know you are all looking forward to celebrating 50 years of independence your Golden Anniversary," he said in a speech in the Bahamas capital Nassau.

"And with Jamaica celebrating 60 years of independence this year, and Belize celebrating 40 years of independence last year, I want to say this: We support with pride and respect your decisions about your future. Relationships evolve. Friendship endures."

His speech is the clearest indication the royal family would back the three nations ditching the queen as their head of state, echoing the decision taken by Barbados last November.
