London - Palace officials have offered new details about Prince Harry's upcoming Diamond Jubilee trip to the Caribbean and Brazil.

It will mark his first trip as an official representative of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Harry plans to visit Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas for festivities marking the queen's 60th year on the throne, then travel to Rio and Sao Paulo to promote British ties.

Officials said on Wednesday the trip will include a few games of beach volleyball on Rio's famous oceanfront and a visit to Usain Bolt Stadium in Jamaica. They say it is possible he will meet Bolt there depending on the Olympic hero's training schedule.

Harry will also meet with schoolchildren and take part in military exercises during his trip in early March.
