Prince William and Kate to Visit B.C. and Yukon
Prince William and Duchess Catherine will be accompanied by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on their visit to Yukon.
The royal couple are set to visit the northern territory with the leader’s wife Sophie Grégoire and the Governor General of Canada, David Johnston.
It is not known what activities the parents to three-year-old Prince George and 15-month-old Princess Charlotte will get up to but an internal Yukon government email revealed everything would be in “driving distance” from Whitehorse, the capital of Yukon.
And the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are said to be “delighted” about returning to Canada.
A statement released recently from Kensington Palace reads: “Their Royal Highnesses have been invited to visit by the Government of Canada. They will visit British Columbia and the territory of Yukon as part of their tour. The Duke and Duchess are delighted to be returning to Canada.
“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.”
Whilst Johnston added: “Sharon and I will be delighted to welcome Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Canada.
“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.”
