More details on royal visit


More details have been released about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s upcoming visit to Canada.

Kensington Palace tweeted this morning that Prince William and his wife, Kate, will visit Vancouver, Victoria, Bella Bella, Haida Gwaii, and Kelowna in British Columbia, as well as Whitehorse and Carcross in Yukon.

It noted the trip will take place Sept. 24-Oct. 1.

This will be the royal couple’s second visit to Canada.

Their first, following their 2011 wedding, took them to Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Charlottetown, Summerside, Yellowknife, Calgary, and Slave Lake after that community was ravaged by a forest fire.

The then-newlyweds drew large crowds wherever they went, including a packed Canada Day gathering on Parliament Hill.

The visit also was seen as a way to engage young Canadians with the monarchy—given the perception of waning interest compared to that of older Canadians.

The couple’s children, George and Charlotte, reportedly are slated to accompany their parents on their Canadian trip.
