Prince Harry celebrated Barbados' 50 years of independence Wednesday. The British prince met Barbados' biggest star Rihanna at the annual Toast the Nation event celebrating national achievements at Bridgetown.

Prince Harry wore his medals and his insignia as a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order while Rihanna wore a blue dress and opted for yellow finger nails — both colors of the Barbados flag.

Prince Harry read a message from the Queen to mark the anniversary of the moment - on 30 November 1966 - that the country broke away from British rule.

Later, Prince Harry and Rihanna sat next to each other on stage at a concert at Kensington Oval cricket ground in Bridgetown.

The 20,000-strong crowd cheered and chanted Prince Harry's name when he was introduced, prompting a smile from the royal.

But there was an even bigger response for Barbados-born Rihanna.
