Prince Harry will learn about the defensive capabilities of the Bahamas today (04.03.12).
The Apache helicopter-trained royal will join the crew of a boat belonging to the Royal Bahamian Defence Force for a security exercise that will last several hours, and spend time with servicemen to learn about their work.
This is the second leg of the prince's tour of the Caribbean, and comes after he enjoyed the sights of Belize, where he oversaw the naming of a road in honour of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth.
While in the Bahamas he will attend a thanksgiving service to mark the Queen's 60th year on the throne, and he will be joined by governor general of the island Sir Arthur Foulkes.
He will also tour the island's capital Nassau, where he will give a speech at Rawson Square and visit an open-air photography exhibition celebrating Queen Elizabeth and her relationship with the Bahamas which is currently taking place.
While in Belize - a country in Central America - Harry enjoyed a trip to the abandoned city of Xunantuntich, home of the Maya people, where he discovered the history of the spectacular stone pyramids and temples in the jungle.
After the Bahamas, Harry will visit Jamaica and Brazil.
