This weekend marks the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen. Over 6 decades the Monarch has traversed the globe taking in a total of 116 different countries. As Head of the Commonwealth and Head of State for numerous Caribbean countries, many of these visits have been to British Overseas Territories and Commonwealth realms in the Caribbean, starting with Jamaica in 1953. Other members of the royal family have also spent a lot of time in the Caribbean on official visits. Earlier this year Prince Harry toured the Bahamas, Jamaica and Belize as part of the Diamond Jubilee tour, whilst Prince Edward and Princess Sophie spent two weeks visiting Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Grenada, Montserrat, St Kitts & Nevis, Anguilla and Antigua & Barbuda.
Royal visits to the Caribbean have certainly not been limited to official visits. Through its association with Princess Margaret, the private island of Mustique was renowned as a royal bolthole in the 60s and 70s. Princess Margaret built a home in Mustique on a 10 acre property gifted to her in 1960 by the island's owner, Lord Glenconner. The Queen and Prince Philip have also made a total of three private visits to Mustique over the years. Relishing the privacy that Mustique continues to offer today, the Middletons have taken a family holiday in Mustique every year for the last five years - this January they were joined by Prince William.
With the Diamond Jubilee celebrations set to begin this weekend, we felt it was appropriate to present five Caribbean homes fit for a Queen - one from each of the UK's Overseas Territories in the Caribbean.
