Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s family trip to Canada
Prince William and Duchess Catherine will take their children on their tour of Canada.
Prince George, three, and 16-month-old Princess Charlotte will accompany their mother and father to the north American country later this month, and the royal couple are said to be “looking forward” to introducing their kids to the country.
A Kensington Palace spokesperson confirmed: “I am very pleased to confirm that they will bring their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, with them to Canada.
“They have received so many wonderful messages from Canadians since the birth of their children and look forward to having the chance to introduce their young family to the country.”
William and Catherine, who are both 34, will take in more than 30 engagements over their one-week tour, which will see them visit Vancouver and also smaller places such as Bella Bella, which is home to fewer than 2,000 people.
The family’s tour will begin in Victoria on September 24, where they will be greeted at the airport before heading to Government House, where they will be based throughout the tour.
The pair will officially open their tour at British Columbia’s Parliament Buildings by paying respects at Victoria’s Cenotaph and will unveil a new plaque paying tribute to the veterans of Canada’s involvement in the Afghanistan conflict.
During the tour, they will also visit the Immigration Services Society of British Columbia and attend an event celebrating young leaders in Canadian arts, music, sport, charity, business, and film.
Kensington Palace added: “Their Royal Highnesses are pleased to have this opportunity to meet with people of their generation who they might have the chance to get to meet again over the years.”
