William and Kate cancel a trip to a Belize village – level 1

25-03-2022 07:00

Belize, Jamaica, and the Bahamas are Caribbean countries. They are in the British monarchy.

Barbados is in the Caribbean, too. It is not in the British monarchy anymore. William and Kate make a trip to the Caribbean. Many people think that they do it to help the monarchy. They want these countries to stay in the monarchy.

The first stop is a Belize village. The plan is to visit a farm. William and Kate want to land on a football pitch.

Local people protest against the visit. They don’t want William and Kate there. The couple must change their plans. They visit another place in Belize.

Difficult words: monarchy (when a country has a king or queen), land (to touch the ground of a place), pitch (a place where people do some sports).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
