Charles and Camilla are to visit Canada from the 20th to 23rd May on an official Royal visit taking in the provinces of New Brunswick, Ontario and Saskatchewan.
The visit is timed to coincide with Victoria Day (the celebration of The Queen’s official birthday in Canada) and the program will highlight Canadians’ service to their communities.
On Victoria Day itself, 21st May, Their Royal Highnesses will be welcomed to Canada in a military ceremony at the Canadian Forces Base Gagetown, New Brunswick where His Royal Highness served in the 1970s. They will also attend a public festival in Saint John New Brunswick to celebrate The Queen’s official birthday in Canada before flying to Toronto, Ontario for a traditional Victoria Day fireworks celebration over Lake Ontario.
The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall last visited Canada in November 2009. The Prince has visited Canada on 15 previous occasions. This is Camilla’s second visit to Canada.
