Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s tour plan
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s tour of Canada took six months to plan.
The royal couple arrived in the country last week with their children Prince George, three, and Princess Charlotte, 16 months, and, although the family are being whisked from place-to-place with ease, the Canadian government spent half a year making arrangements with the governments of Yukon and British Columbia, as well as Kensington Palace.
An official spokesperson told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: “The program you see being rolled out is a collaborative effort between all four groups.”
And, although the pair have a jam-packed schedule to keep them busy, officials are more concerned about the tour running “smoothly, on time, safely, and successfully.”
However, all that is made easier by the fact the royal family have three private secretaries, four press officers, one tour secretary, one operations manager, one PA and one nanny.
They’ve also got a team of Scotland Yard security guards who will accompany them on their tour, while the Royal Canadian Mounted Police will also be on hand to help.
The duke and duchess have been busy travelling between cities in the country, while they children have been staying in Victoria, British Columbia, with their experienced nanny.
Their tour will come to an end on October 1.
