Change of plans

Prince WilliamHis wife Kate Milddleton have canceled a scheduled visit to a village in Belize after residents protested the royal trip.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in the country, formerly British Honduras, on Saturday, March 19, to kick off an eight-day royal Caribbean tour, and were due to visit Akte ‘il Ha cacao farm in the indigenous Maya village of Indian Creek on Sunday morning. However, the event was cancelled after protests by a few Indian Creek residents. Reuters reported.
