#Notmyprince- Is the Royal family becoming a hated symbol of outdated colonialism?

An In-depth Analysis

Prince Harry arrived in the West Indies to begin a tour of seven Commonwealth countries in the Caribbean. In response to his visit, strong Republican sentiment is rife among the islands, which resulted in the creation of the hashtag ‘Not my prince’. The #Notmyprince campaign is an ‘Anti-Colonial Welcoming Committee for Prince Harry's Caribbean visit’ created by Nalini Mohabir & Jermain Ostiana, whose description states: ‘Decolonize. Dignity. Demand Apology & Reparations.’ Freelance journalist, Carinya Sharples tweeted: ‘Dear Prince Harry, welcome to Guyana. Wiping out 170 yrs of colonial oppression in 3 days? Good effort.’ Moreover, Alia Karim stated in his tweet: ‘Sisters and brothers in #Guyana protesting Prince #Harry's visit--we demand that he address the legacy of British rule! #NotMyPrince’. Yet there were still hundreds of people who welcomed the prince’s visit. So is the Royal family becoming a symbol of despised colonialism?
