Prince Harry stranded in St Vincent as his ship breaks down

Prince Harry is stranded in St Vincent after the Royal Fleet Auxiliary ship that he is is travelling on broke down.

Engineers are currently working to try and fix the problem, which is being described as a “technical fault”.

If the ship isn’t fixed soon, Prince Harry may be forced to complete his tour by aircraft meaning a change to the itinerary.

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 cancelled and as of 17:00 local time, he is still stuck in St Vincent.

If the problem persists, Prince Harry will have to change plans and fly to Grenada instead, almost certainly in a chartered aircraft, and book into hotels rather than sleeping on the ship.

The Captain’s quarters aren’t much larger than officers quarters, but a source told The Mirror 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 is really liking 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 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.”

    I have wondered since the Thompsons had some crew aboard the HMS Repulse, what ship life and rescue might have been. I suggest for a good and entertaining version, that some of Humphrey Bogart’s lesser known films give the answer. Some have a continuity of crew from WW I and WW II. Well I was happy that Prince Harry, while on board intercepted 70 million Pounds worth of drugs, a good step in the right direction.
