On July 27, 2016, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada and Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, issued statements regarding the acceptance of their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to the invitation of the Government of Canada for a Royal Tour to Canada in fall 2016.
This will be Prince William and Kate’s second visit to Canada. They will visit British Columbia and the territory of Yukon as part of this tour. Prime Minister’s invitation to Prince William and Kate includes their young children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Their first Royal Tour as a married couple was in 2011– they visited the provinces of Ontario, Québec, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Yellowknife, and Alberta (Slave Lake and Calgary).
Not only is the Royal Family visiting Western Canada this September, with four different stops in the capital, they will make Victoria their home base for the entire week trip
