Prince William, Kate's Canadian Itinerary Released
The royals are heading to Canada, eh?
Newlyweds Prince William and Kate will visit Canada from June 30 to July 8 on their first official tour as a married couple. The newly anointed Duke and Duchess will visit eight cities during their tour of the country.
This will be William's third visit to Canada and Kate's first. The tour "will enable [Will and Kate] to meet as many Canadians as possible and, in the process, come to know Canada even better."
Prince William and Kate's exact Canadian itinerary is:
June 30-July 2: The National Capital Region (Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Quebec)
July 2: Montreal
July 3: Quebec City
July 3-4: Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
July 4: Summerside, Prince Edward Island
July 4-6: Yellowknife, Northwest Territories
July 6-8: Calgary, Alberta
"It is hoped that, upon their departure, they will come to regard Canada as their second home -- a term of endearment often used by The Queen to describe her special bond of affection for and pride in this country," says a rep from the Department of Canadian Heritage.
William, 28, and Kate, 29, will also visit the United States, flying to Los Angeles, Calif. on July 8 for a two-day stay.
