The Prince of Wales has praised the “resilience” of the people of Dominica as he saw for himself the damage wreaked to the Caribbean island by Hurricane Maria.
He made a one-day stop in Dominica on Sunday to see the recovery efforts for himself. He landed in Antigua on Friday and also visited Barbuda and the British Virgin Islands.
Charles stood among the ruins of Pichelin village, which was battered by torrential flooding and high winds in September, and sympathised with the residents who have remained.
He was accompanied on his trip by the Penny Mordaunt, the UK’s international development secretary.
