When it comes to the most desirable destinations for a royal tour, the Caribbean must be high on the list. So, we can't imagine Prince Harry is complaining about his upcoming two-week trip to a number of islands in the region.

Kensington Palace has confirmed the 32-year-old royal will visit Antigua, Barbuda, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent, Grenada, Barbados and Guyana between 20 November and 4 December.

It sounds dreamy, but as his jam-packed itinerary suggests, representing the Queen for 14 days straight is hardly a holiday.

The royal tour will kick off in Antigua and Barbuda, where the prince will join in celebrations to mark the 35th anniversary of independence in each country. Day trips to nearby islands will follow, which will give Harry the chance to learn about conservation, youth empowerment and sport for social development.

Next up is a three-day visit to Barbados, which will begin on 29 November. Charity visits and partying with the locals, who are celebrating the nation's 50th year of independence, are on the agenda here, before the tour concludes in Guyana, where the focus will be on eco-tourism.

Harry, who made his first official visit to the Caribbean in 2012, has a lot on his plate, but he's said to be "honoured" to be representing his grandmother in her 90th year.

"Prince Harry holds special memories of his last visit to the Caribbean, and of the warmth, friendliness and sense of fun that comes so naturally to this region," a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said. "His Royal Highness is greatly looking forward to meeting more of the people who call it home, and for the opportunity during this tour to be visiting some countries for the first time."

Fingers crossed we get to see how our favourite royal does "beach style."
