Prince Harry's Caribbean trip met with anti-colonial #notmyprince hashtag

Updated: 

Disgruntled anti-royalists have started an online campaign against Prince Harry's tour of the Caribbean.

Mirroring the Not My President movement in the US, activists have got the #Notmyprince hashtag trending in the region to protest against the colonial links of the visit.

The regal redhead, 32, will visit six countries where the Queen is head of state on his 15-day visit.

A post on the NotMyPrince Tumblr read: "Prince Harry brings the combined mystique of whiteness, celebrity, power and wealth; in return he is greeted with the usual pomp and circumstance. He will be feted with military parades and cultural performances."

"Prince Harry brings the combined mystiq...

There were some defenders of the Crown however.

Harry arrived in the West Indies to begin a seven-country tour of the Caribbean on behalf of the Queen to mark independence from the Crown.

The 32-year-old royal will visit six countries where the Queen is head of state: Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines as well as the Commonwealth nation of Guyana.

Harry read a message from Her Maj which said: "Prince Philip and I send our warmest wishes to Antigua and Barbuda on the occasion of this celebration to mark 35 years of independence.

"I will never forget the warmth of your people and the incredible natural beauty of the islands.

"I congratulate all of you for the part you have played in building this community and creating so many opportunities for the next generation."

Opportunities like committing treasonous les majeste against your grandson, ma'am!
