I did not know this...
"In contrast to official visits, where a member of the royal family receives a formal invitation from the Prime Minister, a working visit is arranged privately with the Queen’s representatives in Canada. While an official visit involves a royal presence at state ceremonies or celebrations, the focus of a working visit is engagement with the organizations that have a personal relationship with the members of the royal family in Canada" (The Itinerary for the Earl and Countess of Wessex in Canada: September 11-18, 2012 | Carolyn Harris: Royal Historian).

So that makes more sense for this trip to happen at the same time as the Cambridge's go East.

Cities on the visit: Ottawa, Iqaluit, Trenton, Toronto, Hamilton, St. Catharines, North Simco, Midland, Penetanguishene. I can't wait to find out how that last is correctly pronounced.
Bon Voyage to the Wessexes. I hope they Skype the children frequently!

It is pronounced pretty much like you would think - but is often shortened to pent-a-tang

Thanks Mag. I wonder how much coverage their work will get, as it seems a lot of Canadia news agencies are reporting of their visit. I hope we see some images or news clips. The Canadians tend to love the Royal Family, so here's hoping!

Edward has been to Canadia 33 times? Woah.

Welcome to Canada to TRH. I hopefully will get out to see Sophie as she's will be in my home town of St. Catharines, Ontario. I missed them the last time they were in Canada.

Sophie looks GREAT in red. Red and navy are two colours that suit her so well. Thanks for the image links everyone, I am glad we are seeing some images of this visit to Canada. Hope we see some video clips too at some point.

Kelly, I hope you get to see Sophie in real life when she is in Canada, that would be something great. I would be a BIT jealous, haha.

Sophie visited Canadian War Museum 12/9/12.

Images can be seen here. It also says there is a video but I cannot see one, perhaps it is only available in Canada.

Thank you for the videos and pictures! I love that their visit is getting some coverage. Sophie's looking great in red, by the way.

Sophie looks so beautiful in that red dress, it's great. Thanks for the videos Mag, it is great the their trip is receiving coverage. Although some of their engagements are in private, and they state that public and press are not invited, it is great that local newspapers are covering it.

An image gallery of Edward and Sophie laying a wreath in Ottawa, 12.9.12. Another new dress for Sophie for this engagement.

Richard Lawrence Photography - Wessex

I am loving her black shoes, they are beautiful. I need them in my life right now.

Two images I love from this engagement:

Image 1 + Image 2
