Officials announced the details of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Canadian tour Monday.

Surprising to some of the residents of Ontario’s capital, the pair will not be making an appearance in Toronto. But they will be starting off in the nation’s capital from June 30 to July 2.

Afterwards, their trip will go something like this:

July 2: Montreal
July 3: Quebec City
July 3 and 4: Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
July 4: Summerside, P.E.I
July 4 to July 6: Yellowknife, Northwest Territories
July 6 to July 8: Calgary

The newlyweds first international tour will be sure to attract Royal watchers anticipating a glimpse of the young couple.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper said,” “The couple’s decision to visit Canada first is a testament to our country’s close relationship with the Crown and Royal Family, and an opportunity for all Canadians to take pride in our traditions, history, and institutions.”

It will be William’s third visit to Canada (he visited in 1991 and 1998) and Kate’s first.

The theme of the tour is “Moving Forward Together: From Past Accomplishments to Current Service to Future Achievements.”
