After Prince William and Kate Middleton's Caribbean tour involved some hiccups — there were many protests as The Bahamas, Belize and Jamaica are still under Queen Elizabeth's rule — it sounds like the two will change things up going forward.

“William and Kate will modernize how they work. It’s a breath of fresh air," a source told The Sun. “They were bruised by attacks that their Caribbean trip harked back to the colonial age. In future they will rip up the rule-book and do things ‘The Cambridge Way.' They’re trying to work out what that will look like."

During their trip, Jamaica's Prime Minister Andrew Holness made it clear that their country wants to switch things up.

"We're very, very happy to have you and we hope you've received a warm welcome of the people," Holness said. "Jamaica is a very free and liberal country and the people are very expressive —and I'm certain that you would have seen the spectrum of expressions yesterday," he said, referring to a recent protest.

After the two landed back home, William, who also spoke about slavery during one of his speeches, made a rate statement about the controversy.

"I know that this tour has brought into even sharper focus questions about the past and the future. In Belize, Jamaica and The Bahamas, that future is for the people to decide upon," the prince began. "Foreign tours are an opportunity to reflect. You learn so much. What is on the minds of Prime Ministers. The hopes and ambitions of school children. The day-to-day challenges faced by families and communities."

"But we have thoroughly enjoyed spending time with communities in all three countries, understanding more about the issues that matter most to them," he continued. "Catherine and I are committed to service. For us that's not telling people what to do. It is about serving and supporting them in whatever way they think best, by using the platform we are lucky to have.

"It is why tours such as this reaffirm our desire to serve the people of the Commonwealth and to listen to communities around the world. Who the Commonwealth chooses to lead its family in the future isn't what is on my mind. What matters to us is the potential the Commonwealth family has to create a better future for the people who form it, and our commitment to serve and support as best we can," he concluded.
