Royalty will soon be returning to the Great White North, as Kensington Palace has confirmed that Prince William and Kate Middleton will be coming back to Canada. Invited by the Government of Canada, the duo will visit British Columbia and the Yukon this coming fall. Their itinerary will be revealed at a later date.
“The Duke and Duchess are delighted to be returning to Canada,” commented a Kensington Palace spokesperson. “They hold very happy memories from their visit in 2011 – their first overseas tour as a married couple. They are really looking forward to seeing other parts of this beautiful country and having the opportunity to meet many more Canadians along the way.”
That 2011 visit for William and Kate included stops in Ottawa, Montréal, Québec City, Charlottetown, Summerside, Yellowknife, Slave Lake and Calgary.
“Sharon and I will be delighted to welcome Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Canada,” said David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, regarding the couple’s future visit. “Their Royal Tour will take them to the beautiful province of British Columbia and the scenic territory of Yukon. Once again, our true Canadian pride and spirit will shine and be at the very heart of this visit so they can feel at home.”
Back in May, Prince Harry visited Toronto to officially launch the 2017 Invictus Games. During that visit, he had the chance to speak with Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.
