Just one day after receiving her Footwear Designer of the Year award, Rihanna jetted home to Barbados for her country’s Independence celebration. And, of course, to meet Prince Harry. Pic and deets inside…
Rihanna sat with Prince Harry during the Barbados’ Toast the Nation event on Wednesday on the beautiful island. As the former travel ambassador for her home country and Barbados’ native daughter, it’s only right she’s front and center for such a huge occasion.
The twosome were seen laughing it up throughout the event. He was there on behalf of his grandmother the Queen of England to help Barbados celebrate 50 years of independence from the British monarchy.
Prince Harry also delivered a message from The Queen congratulating Barbados:

Beforehand, Ri met with Harry while lunching at a separate event:

Cute. Talk about marking 50 years with a (very cute) bang.
