Jamaican MP Breaks Silence After Royal Brush-Off Reports

Jamaican MP Lisa Hanna has
taken to Twitter to share her perspective on the Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge’s visit to the country this week.

The former Miss World opened
up in a series of tweets where she insisted she had enjoyed a “very
interactive and pleasant conversation” with the royals and that she
welcomed them “wholeheartedly” to Jamaica.

Her statements came after news
reports that suggested the MP had appeared to behave dismissively toward the
Duchess when they greeted each other in front of the press.

Ms. Hanna was clear in her
message, however, that the pair held mutual respect for each other.

She shared photos from the
meeting that showed her standing beside, talking to and smiling with Kate as
she wrote: “Today I welcomed Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge
Kate to Jamaica on behalf of the Leader of the Opposition in celebration of the
Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.”

She continued: “We had a
very interactive and pleasant conversation throughout the proceedings as we
talked about family, our cultures and our people.

“There’s no doubt at this
time that we all seek our true independence and want to develop systems &
strategies where we become free from the monarchy. But until then we will
always remain a courteous and respectful country.

“I am a firm believer in
reparations and as such when I was Minister of Youth and Culture of culture I
led the reparations committee which made strides in developing a legal
submission to Britain which examined the economic cost of slavery to our
country.
