1OH Prince Edward Jamaica Observer reader on Thu 31 Jul 2014 - 1:43



GLASGOW, Scotland — The Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward, says he is very aware of the Jamaica Observer newspaper and that he reads it online.

On a tour of the main media centre at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) yesterday, the vice-patron of the Commonwealth Games Federation chatted with members of the international press covering the XX Commonwealth Games here.

When he came over to talk to this reporter, and following a quick handshake, he asked: "Hello, sir, and where are you from?"

His eyes lit up at the response.

"Oh, Jamaica. That's great. What media do you work for, newspaper, electronic?" he quizzed.

"Oh yes, I know the Jamaica Observer," he said in response to my answer. "I am sure I have read it (online)."

Edward, the third son and fourth child of the Queen, then queried: "Are you alone here covering all these events?"

He was then told that a photographer was part of the Observer team here.

"Oh, that's a lot (covering so many events)," he shot back.

"You guys (Jamaicans) are very good at track and you will do well," Edward noted.

This reporter then proceeded to try to wrest an interview out of the Prince, but he declined. "I am sorry, if I did that, I would have to do it for the other reporters here and I would be here all week," he said with a smile.

"It's nice to have met you, and enjoy the rest of the games," he said. He then slowly drifted away and randomly stopped and chit-chatted with other scribes busy pounding away on their laptops.

Edward generally inquired of reporters about the main press area, attempting, it seemed, to get a feel of whether or not the needs and welfare of some 1,500 accredited media personnel were being catered to.

There have been other royal encounters involving Jamaicans at these games. Jamaican boxer Cheavon Clarke was captured at the athletes' village in a mock sparring match with Prince Charles, The Queen's eldest son and heir apparent, and Edward's elder brother.

Three Jamaicans -- hurdler Richard Phillips, netball captain Nicole Aiken-Pinnock, and Amateur Swimming Association of Jamaica president Marin Lyn -- were among a group of other athletes and officials selected to have lunch with The Queen last week.

On Monday, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge -- Prince William and Kate Middleton -- and Prince Harry joined thousands of spectators at the Hydro for the gymnastics in the men's and women's team finals, and individual qualifying rounds.

The dressed-down trio — wearing jeans and T-shirts — arrived at the Hydro almost unnoticed by the crowds until the arena's cameras zoomed in on them.
