Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller was the toast of the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) last Sunday when she flew in on a Sandals jet to be the keynote speaker at the official opening of Sandals Resorts International's (SRI's) Key West Luxury Village, its latest addition to the Beaches Turks and Caicos mega resort in Providenciales.

The prime minister was greeted by SRI Chairman Gordon 'Butch' Stewart and CEO Adam Stewart, as well as a large group of Jamaicans at the airport, and was a big hit later that evening at the opening ceremony where there were non-stop requests for photo opportunities with her.

Jamaica Observer senior photographer Joseph Wellington worked overtime to bring you this photo story of the event that was dubbed an all-white affair:
