The Prince And Princess Of Wales Have Reacted To Hurricane Beryl Victims

The Prince and Princess of Wales have personally contributed to relief efforts following Hurricane Beryl’s impact on Caribbean nations such as Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela.

They are closely monitoring the aftermath of Hurricane Beryl, currently classified as a Category 5 storm heading towards Jamaica, a country they visited during their 2022 royal tour.

As of July 3, the hurricane has claimed the lives of 16 people, primarily in Venezuela but also in Grenada and St Vincent and the Grenadines, with estimated damages exceeding $1 billion.

During their 2022 visit to Jamaica, Prince William and Kate participated in various activities, including a memorable visit to Trench Town, Bob Marley’s childhood neighborhood.

A highlight was their experience with a two-person bobsleigh, reminiscent of the iconic Jamaican bobsleigh team that inspired the film Cool Runnings.

Their interaction with the team, captured in a now-iconic selfie, was warmly received and shared on the Jamaica Bobsleigh & Skeleton team’s official Instagram, prompting a response from the royal couple.

“What an honour it is to have The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge not only in Jamaica but sitting in one of our history-making bobsleighs! We are thankful for the support and looking forward to once again being the #HottestThingOnIce in the 2026 Winter Olympics!” the team captioned the photo.

Reacting to the post, William and Kate wrote back: “Lovely to meet you all today.” Resharing it on their Instagram Stories, they added: “Selfie for the archives.”

The royal couple have often made private donations to causes close to their hearts, and back in 2021, William made a donation to a charity which helps the families of fallen rangers.

In a tweet, the Thin Green Line Foundation said: “We are very grateful to The Duke of Cambridge for his recent support through our Fallen Ranger Fund for the families impacted by the devastating loss of six Rangers at Virunga National Park in January.”

Reacting to the attack at the time, William said: “The horrendous attack on staff at the Virunga National Park is abhorrent and I condemn the actions of those responsible in the strongest terms.

“Rangers who work tirelessly to protect both the national park and the neighbouring communities should be honoured not attacked. They should never find themselves in a position where their lives are on the line.”
