Lovely news! Looking forward to following all their engagements. I wonder if they will take the children with them.

BC and the Yukon so it's the areas they didn't go when they first went. Probably a lot outdoorsy participation events I'm thinking. No mention of the kids so I am thinking they are staying at home.

Rebecca English mentioned that the kinds might be going, but a decision will be made later... as it should be.

Skipping over the prairies. They haven't been to Saskatchewan or Manitoba (or the other 3 maritime provinces). I would assume likely Vancouver and Victoria (my dad's cousin used to host royal visits and escorted the queen last visit but is retired). I would love to see them go to Prince George. Diana and Charles did years ago and city was so happy with their son's name. I wish they would stop in Edmonton along the way, they skipped over Alberta's capital last, and close to where going.


Yukon will be very nature based. Pretty remote. BC could be blend of things.

I'm really exited. My mother already wants me to take her to British Columbia. We both had a chance to see William and Catherine in 2011, so this is great.

I'm happy to hear this news officially. I think a lot of people knew this news was coming, but had to wait for it to be confirmed.

A shame to not take the kids - because Canada is a such a great place to visit. Mom and dad might have to work - but I think all little people would find lots of Canada wonderful to visit. I always did. However, George will be in school, won't he?

Prime Minister Trudeau will be delighted to welcome The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge to Canada this fall:

Quote:
The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement regarding the upcoming Royal Tour of Canada by Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, which will take place in the fall of 2016:

“We are delighted by the Governor General’s announcement that Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will visit Canada this fall. During their stay, the Duke and Duchess will travel to British Columbia and Yukon on a visit that will showcase some of Canada’s finest natural beauty.

“This Royal Tour, the second undertaken by Their Royal Highnesses to Canada, also presents a unique opportunity for Canadians of all backgrounds to meet with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and learn more about our heritage, traditions, and institutions.

“Our government looks forward to providing Canadians with further details closer to the beginning of the Royal Tour.”

Hmmmm I'm thinking no kids on this trip. No mention of it.

What a great location for them to go...more in the 'wild'.

All of the royal reporters are basically saying "well, we think the kids will go but it's too soon for them to announce that".

The last time the Yukon saw a royal tour was 2001, so it's past due.

I'll honestly be surprised if there isn't a stop in Ottawa; the release seems to be carefully worded to allow for other stops in addition to BC and the Yukon.

Fall is a beautiful time to visit Canada. Time to get out, dust off and polish up the diamonds in HM's maple leaf brooch. I think that's one of the best brooches in HM's collection.

I think whether or not the kids go on this tour depends on the length of it, where they're going to be going and what they're going to be doing. I would think the places that they go to that might be of interest to kids, how much time the itinerary allows for the parents and kids to be together and probably a few other considerations would define whether or not George and Charlotte go or stay home.

Exactly. Including "Do we want George to be out of nursery for a few weeks" and the temprament of the kids at that time.

I hope they take the children, for at least a part of the tour. Nursery school is not rigorous, so if George missed some, it won't be a big deal. I've taught in a nursery school classroom, and parents took kids on long trips pretty much all the time. The only concern would be tuition, but since William and Catherine are not struggling financially, it won't be a big deal. In any case, I'm looking forward to this tour, with, or without the children.

If they go for a itinerary similar to what they did last time going from city to city, that would not really suit the kids. It would have to be more of the hub and spoke tour that they did in NZ and Australia where we saw one George event at each country and then he was at the government houses and WK came back to him after their engagements.

The week in India and Bhutan probably had more engagements than the 3 weeks in NZ & Australia.

Exactly. Kids and no kids make two very different tours. With two different "goal". With kids, it's more about introducing the kids to the country, build a connection and do some events in between while the no-kids tours are more hectic and have more events. Different things, both good in different ways.

Great news ! Let's hope William's French is better this time, or else that he doesn't make a fool of himself again trying to speak it in public

I think that even if he does speak French and even flubs it up a bit, its the effort of trying that would endear him to the people. It shows making an effort and that's what counts in my book.

According to the PM's statement, it appears that William and Kate will only visit British Columbia and Yukon, so I am not expecting a very extensive program.

As I wrote above, after reading the PM's statement, it appears to me that they are only going to Western Canada, where close to nobody speaks French, so he probably won't have to struggle with language problems.
