They were forced to cancel engagements in Belize on Saturday over protests that occurred after the couple landed their helicopter on a soccer field that's embroiled in a land dispute between Belize citizens and Flora and Fauna International (FFI), a conservation group that lists William as a patron, Reuters previously reported.

Protesters carried signs that read "Prince William leave our land," "Not your land, not your decision," and "Colonial legacy theft continues with Prince & FFI," the publication reported.

Representatives for Jenny Packham and Kensington Palace did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
