The building was demolished at 185 miles per hour Hurricane Dorian in 2019.

The hurricane that damaged three quarters of all homes as it swept across the island chain, is considered the worst natural disaster in recorded history in the Bahamaskilling 74 people. Another 245 people are still missing.

Kate and William both clasped their hands during a somber moment at Daystar Evangelical Church in Great Abaco.

They stood in front of a memorial wall commemorating those killed in the storm.

However, there were also plenty of smiles as the Cambridges met with residents to hear how communities have been rebuilt in the years since the tragedy.

Kate, wearing a pink £254 Rixo midi dress, beamed brightly as she chatted to parishioners.

She also met one of her most recent fans – a little one in a yellow t-shirt, who presented her with a flower.

After the meeting, Kate was seen carrying the bloom away with her.

The couple will next travel to Grand Bahama to speak with youth at the island’s children’s home.

They will end their journey at Coral Vita who won £1million Prince Williams Earthshot Prize, before returning to the UK.

She’s seen her action-packed journey swim with sharkshop aboard a Land Rover that once transported the Queen and Prince Philip, and Step into a Cool Runnings style bob.

But her tour wasn’t without its challenging moments – and Wilhelm has said he supports and respects any decision made by Caribbean nations about their future.

Belize, the Bahamas and Jamaica are considering cutting ties with the British monarchy.

“I know that next year you are all looking forward to celebrating 50 years of independence, your golden anniversary,” he said in a speech in Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas.

“And with Jamaica celebrating 60 years of independence this year and Belize celebrating 40 years of independence last year, I want to say this.

“We proudly and respectfully support your decisions about your future.

“Relationships develop. Friendships endure.”

His speech is the clearest indication that the royal family would support the three nations in dismissing the Queen as their head of state, mirroring Barbados’ decision last November.
