Prince William has opened up about what he sees in store for several nations after a special trip! William and Kate recently spent time in three countries that are part of the Commonwealth, and as Hello! shares, the Duke of Cambridge made a speech on the last day about how he sees the royals being involved with them going forward.
William says he and Kate are "committed to service"
William and Kate's Caribbean tour lasted for eight days, and saw the royals make stops in Belize, Jamaica, and the Bahamas. In each of the countries, the couple had the chance to experience the culture and meet with people from the community. William said that tours such as this one provide "an opportunity to reflect" because of how they allow them to have a greater understanding of the people.
When the royals were in Jamaica, the nation's prime minister shared a strong message with them, stating the country's intent to supercede from British governance and become independent. During his speech, William acknowledged how "questions about the past and the future" for the three countries they visited have been raised, stating how he believes "that future is for the people to decide upon."
William went on to say that he and Kate "have thoroughly enjoyed spending time with communities in all three countries" during their tour and reflected on the roles they will play moving forward. He explained that they "are committed to service," sharing that they intend to help people by "serving and supporting them in whatever way they think best, by using the platform we are lucky to have."
