In early 1966 the Queen and Prince Philip made a 5 week tour of the West Indies which culminated in their visit to Jamaica. They spent 3 days in Jamaica, arriving in Montego Bay on the Royal Yacht, Britannia. The lights of the Royal yacht twinkling in the Montego Bay harbour became a brief sight-seeing attraction. There was huge excitement as the Queen made history visiting small villages and towns in the Parishes of Hanover and Westmoreland, which had never before received a royal visit. After their last official engagement which was a civic reception in Charles Square, Montego Bay, on the morning of March 6th, the Queen and Prince Philip had some time to themselves. They went to stay at Pimento Hill House with the Count and Countess De Sibour who owned Pimento Hill at that time. This was an incredibly precious time for the Queen and her Prince as it gave them some time to relax and rest in complete privacy before the Queen flew back to London ahead of Prince Phillip. The Prince remained at Pimento Hill until Tuesday 8th March when he flew on to the US and Canada. They must have treasured this time together at Pimento Hill as they knew that they would be apart for the following 2 weeks.
In the Gleaner on March 6th 1966 it is reported that: "the acting prime minister, the Honourable Donald Sangster, has asked the public to cooperate and so allow Her Majesty and Prince Philip to spend a quiet afternoon and evening today and, similarly, after Her majesty's departure, to permit His Royal Highness a few days of rest."
