Kate Middleton and Prince William have stepped in to help those affected by Hurricane Beryl in the Caribbean. In response to the deadly Category 4 storm that has claimed at least ten lives, the royal couple has donated private funds. During Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee tour in 2022, the Prince and Princess of Wales visited the area. Over the eight-day tour around Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas, the couple reportedly faced backlash for public relations gaffes and protests against British colonialism.
