King Charles Hosts West Indies Ahead Of First Test Against England

The West Indies’ tour of England is set to bowl off in earnest on Wednesday with the First Test at the famed Lord’s Cricket Ground but ahead of that, the team made a very high profile courtesy call.

King Charles III hosted the West Indies Men’s Test squad at a reception in Buckingham Palace on Saturday. 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.

A release from Cricket West Indies stated that 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, Dickon Mitchell; the Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves; and the Prime Minister of Jamaica, 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.
