The Dukes Of Cambridge supported the UK’s black community
Windrush Day in the UK is an annual celebration that celebrates the contributions of Afro-Caribbean migration to the country’s economy, culture and society.
In 1948, hundreds of Caribbean nationals arrived in England to participate in the rebuilding of the economy
Windrush Day was first observed in 2013. It was made public five years later.
Kate Middleton, Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge, and Kate Middleton participated in events to celebrate the diversity of the country’s cultural heritage.
They then went to South London in the morning. Today, many Caribbean immigrants call South London home. In a speech, the Duke of Cambridge addressed him and stressed the importance to remember the history of your country.
It is impossible to not appreciate the immense influence of our past on our present. My family proudly celebrates all important events in our country’s lives, including Windrush Day and the recent Platinum Jubilee celebrations of Elizabeth II.
“It is vital to discuss history with our children so they can be able to appreciate it all and look ahead with confidence,” he said.
Prince William explained that his particular interest in the holiday stems from the fact that he was accompanied by Kate Middleton on a royal tour through the Caribbean. This was scheduled to coincide with Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.
Meetings held in March with the heads and residents of these states led the Duke of Cambridge to the idea of how important it is to recognize the diversity of cultures of the inhabitants of modern Britain.
According to royal experts, the visit to South London that included a similar speech was also due to the fact Prince William and Kate Middleton visited the Caribbean during which they witnessed discontent among the residents of Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas. They expressed their opinions against colonialism, as well as support for the abolitionist monarchy.
