Prince Harry meets Miss Bahamas 2011 who wants to marry him

   Mar 6, 2:59 pm

London, Mar 6 (ANI): Prince Harry came face to face with Miss Bahamas 2011 at a reception in Nassau on Sunday, just a day after she had said that she would like to marry him.

Anastagia Pierre had said that she was in town to fall in love with the 27-year-old prince and kept a fixed gaze on him during their meeting.

The two met at a reception for youth leaders, held at the Sheraton Hotel, as part of his Diamond Jubilee ten-day tour.

Pierre, 23, wore a slinky red dress for their meeting, which also involved another beauty queen, Sasha Joyce, the island's Miss Bahamas World entrant.

Pierre was declared Miss Bahamas Universe in the same competition as Joyce, in April 2011.

Joyce wore a purple number, while Harry was dressed in a dark blue two-piece with a white shirt.

"I came here to fall in love with Prince Harry....he's hot! He is single now, so would I marry him, yes!" the Daily Mail quoted Pierre as saying earlier.

"I am fascinated by the Royal Family, I have watched every interview Princess Diana has ever done.

"There is great respect here for the Royal Family and we are hugely excited that Prince Harry has come here to see us. It is all over the television," she added.

The prince arrived in the Bahamas to represent his grandmother for the first time.

He was greeted by cheers and screams as he conducted his first engagement wearing the No. 1 Tropical Dress of The Blues and Royals, the first time that he has worn the uniform in public.

It was made up of a white tunic and lightweight blue twill trousers with the cavalry's distinctive red stripe down the side. Instead of a forage cap, however, he was wearing the light blue beret of the Army Air Corps.

Around his torso was a gold sash, off which hung his ceremonial sword on the front and a cartouche on the back, which was traditionally used to carry messages in.

The uniform also featured the Army Air Corps wings above his medals and on his arm an eagle patch, which represents the standard that was taken from the French at the battle of Waterloo by the Royal Dragoons, the predecessors to the Blues and Royals. (ANI)
