His Majesty The King hosted Caribbean cricket kings, the West Indies Men’s Test squad at a reception in Buckingham Palace on Saturday.

Ahead of the first Test against England that begins on Wednesday 10th July at Lord’s, His Majesty spent time with Kraigg Brathwaite and the entire squad to talk about their tour and the recent impact of Hurricane Beryl in the region.

The King expressed his concern and condolences for the people of the region having had conversations the previous day with the Prime Minister of Grenada, The Hon. Dickon Mitchell; the Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. the Hon. Ralph Gonsalves; and the Prime Minister of Jamaica, The Hon. Andrew Holness.

His Majesty King Charles, Head of the Commonwealth, met with every member of the West Indies touring party and received a signed shirt as a gift from the captain who spoke on behalf of his team.

“We were honoured to be invited and it was a great opportunity for the whole team to be here. Hurricane Beryl has been devastating but we want to make West Indians proud and put a smile on their faces during these tough times.”
