The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall attended the private event at Government House.

The event was private and no members of the media or photographers were invited to the meeting. A group of around 50 gathered at Government House and spoke of the Prince’s support of the veterans and their families.

The Royal couple, accompanied by Canadian Forces personnel, went around the room and spoke individually to each of the families. There was a lot of excitement within the families as they anticipated meeting the couple.

This was the first full day of Charles and Camilla’s visit to Canada. They were in Nova Scotia on Monday and then will visit Cornwall, situated on Prince Edward Island, where they will spend most of Tuesday. In the evening the couple will fly to Winnipeg, where they will tour there before returning to the UK.

Throughout the trip, Charles has been showing support for the Canadian military. The theme of the visit is “Canadian Achievement: Commemorating Our Past, Celebrating Our Future”.
