Prince Harry was reportedly stranded in St Vincent after the Royal Fleet Auxiliary ship that he was traveling had broke down.
Engineers are currently working to fix the problem, which is being described as a “technical fault”.
If the ship is not ready for travel, the prince may be forced to complete his remaining tour by aircraft.
The Prince had planned to have set sail for Grenada by now, as well as visiting a desert island. The trip to the desert island had to be canceled and as of 17:00 local time, he is still stuck in St Vincent.
The Captain’s quarters aren’t much larger than officers’ quarters, but a source told that staying on the ship reminds the Prince of his days in the British Armed Forces. Prince Harry has been chatting and interacting with the seventy-two crew members. “He really likes life on board, he took to it immediately and he is enjoying getting to know the crew and talking to everyone he meets . It is a reminder of his days as a serving officer in the Armed Forces.” The royal isn’t living it up with fancy meals or luxury accommodations as some might expect. “He is eating his meals with the team and the officers on the ship, in the mess with the other sailors. It is very traditional fare, a standard English breakfast and good, no frills food for other meals when he is on board.”
The source further added, “The Prince does not get any special treatment and nor would he ever want any from the crew. He has, though, been given the captain’s cabin, in line with standard protocol when the ship hosts a member of the Royal family or a senior naval figure, and he is incredibly grateful for that.”
