- The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will reportedly face another protest upon their arrival to Jamaica on Tuesday.

- Villagers staged a protest about colonialism and the use of a football field by the royals for landing their helicopter.
Prince William and Kate Middleton will reportedly face another protest as their Caribbean tour takes them to Jamaica this week.
Per The Independent, a protest calling for slavery reparations has been scheduled in Jamaica's capital city of Kingston on Tuesday – the same day the royal couple are expected to arrive in the Caribbean country.
The protest has reportedly been arranged by the Advocates Network, a human rights coalition of Jamaican activists and equalities organisations.
According to People, the coalition has also written an open letter signed by significant figures in Jamaica calling for the British monarchy to pay slave reparations.
"We are of the view that an apology for British crimes against humanity, including but not limited to, the exploitation of the indigenous people of Jamaica, the transatlantic trafficking of Africans, the enslavement of Africans, indentureship and colonisation is necessary to begin a process of healing, forgiveness, reconciliation and compensation," the letter reportedly states.
Jamaica marks its 60th anniversary of independence this year.
Reports of a second protest come after the Duke and Duchess were forced to cancel one of their first engagements upon their arrival to Belize.
Villagers staged a protest about colonialism and the use of a football field by the royals for landing their helicopter ahead of the couple's arrival on Sunday.
In the meantime, the royal couple has had a busy first three days in Belize.
On Day 3 of their visit and the second full day in Belize, Prince William and Kate paid a visit to the Mayan site of Caracol. They also spent time with British and Belizean troops deep in the jungle.
