The Queen has been urged to apologise by Caribbean protesters seeking slavery reparations during the Earl and Countess of Wessex’s visit to Saint Lucia.

A group of around 10 demonstrators displayed banners such as “repatriation with reparations” and “Queen say sorry” while playing bongos and chanting in the town of Soufriere.
