ANTIGUA – PM dismissing reports that he embarrassed Prince
ST JOHN’S – Prime Minister Gaston Browne is dismissing the British media reports that he embarrassed Prince Harry.
Browne says remarks he made about the British royal honeymooning in Antigua was exaggerated by the foreign press who accompanied Prince Harry on the trip.
The party at Barnacle Point was attended by hundreds who were specially invited to celebrate the prince’s visit to Antigua.
By morning, British Media had taken a full swing at the Prime Minister’s statements, saying Prince Harry felt embarrassed and unamused.
Obsever media’s Rory Butler reports that Browne told the member of the Royal Family what happens in Antigua stays in Antigua.
Despite the much ill-conceived publicity that Antigua and Barbuda is receiving because of these articles, Prime Minister Browne shrugged it off as a cultural misunderstanding.
Browne says the British media also took the reigning Miss Antigua and Barbuda, Leanda Norville’s comments out of context.
According to the Daily Mail UK, Norville said the prince was a gentleman and that she wants to be his princess.
“Everyone at this party does. His girlfriend seems like a nice lady, but I would be a good girlfriend for him.”
