I agree. I think most people appriciate someone trying to say a word here and there in your own language.

I saw this tweet

Interesting wording re royal tour: "They will visit British Columbia and the territory of Yukon as PART of their tour."

Not an official, but it does open up for there being more places that has not yet been announced. Just like Bhutan was announced a while after India

I don't know, but it looks to me pretty much like a vacation trip to see the (truly beautiful) Western Canada landscape. I'd expect more of a future king visiting one of his future realms, but I'll refrain from any final conclusion before the full official schedule is published.

Well, there you run into Canadian bilingualism in unexpected places. Speeches by public figures in Canada are often in French and English even if there are no French speakers in the audience. It would depend on official the speeches are and if they're broadcast across the country. Prime Ministers and other high officials often flip back and forth.

How on earth can you say that with the little facts we have? I have no problem with people critiquing the Cambridges but writing a royal tour of as a vacation when we only know 2 general locations (with no time frames etc) is just silly.

If that a vacation, people should talk to the Canadian Government for making and approving the schedule.
Everytime the Cambridges goes on tour, people say its a vacation

Heritage Canada for the most part plans the itinerary in consultation with KP and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The Government of Canada pays for the visit, so royals pretty much go where they're told

Canada certainly gets its fair share of royal visitors - more than any other commonwealth nation per year. Have they not already had Anne, Sophie and Edward this year? Id say Canada nearly gets more royal visits than parts of the UK - hinting at Northern Ireland here!

Visiting in the fall will be lovely - very different from their last visit. I could see them bringing the children - after all George has been "introduced' to Australia and New Zealand so i feel its only natural to "introduce' him to Canada. After all these are potential Commonwealth countries that he will be King off (if they don't become republics before that time)

I have also noticed that there seem to always be a royal in Canada! Appearantly they are very good at organizing royal tours :P

I agree. I wouldn't be surprised if the kids go, but I wouldn't be surprised if they stay at home either.

The Crown in Canada ‏@TheCrownCa
For up-to-date information on the #RoyalTour or to send greetings to the Royal Couple, visit

The 2016 Royal Tour of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge


The tour is already generating a lot of interest. Last night, the CBC national news had it as one of it's lead stories.
The possibility of George and Charlotte going and the lack of a republican movement in Canada are mentioned in the video below.

That has been the case for a while now. The Queen herself has inherited her late mother's attachment to Canada and seems to have passed it onto her family. The Queen mother often spoke about it both publicly and to her family in letters, saying once "Canada made us." Members of the royal family have often spoken about this in speeches during various visits to Canada. The Queen Mother continued to visit the country well into old age (some 15 times) and when she died there was a genuine feeling of sorrow among many Canadians.
By the way, 2017 is the 150th anniversary of Canada's confederation so that will inevitably lead to a number of royal visits.

I'm very excited! I always regretted that I didn't make it up to Vancouver when Charles and Diana were there. I did go to Victoria a few years ago when the Queen was there, and I will certainly be going to see this royal couple when they arrive! Hopefully I'll get some pics to share!

I really doubt that George & Charlotte will accompany their parents. The tour will probably only be a week to 10 days in duration so, I think, the little ones will stay at home with Grandma Carol & their Nanny.

The upcoming royal visit to Yukon will include another glamourous young couple, besides William and Kate. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Grégoire will also be along.

An internal Yukon government email also provides a few other details about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's visit to the North.

They're expected to arrive in Whitehorse on Sep. 28, and spend a day in the territory with the Prime Minister and his wife, as well as Governor General David Johnston.

George and Charlotte - it is being leaked - are off to Canada too.

A "family-friendly" programme is being co-ordinated between Kensington Palace and the Department of Canadian Heritage.

A heavy outdoors focus for the visit - including William getting George to do some fishing.

The "Daily Mail/Mail Online" has all the details.

This time last year The Daily Fail said the Cambridges were going on an official Caribbean tour in early 2016. That tour never happened.

No offense, but I caution all posters who are putting blind faith in The Fail.

The Mail actually said they would be undertaking a tour in the spring - probably to the Caribbean. They did undertake a tour - only it was to India and not the Caribbean.
