The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will hold a reception for Canadians living and working in the UK prior to their upcoming visit to Canada. The reception will take place in the St James’s Palace State Apartments, London.
Over 100 Canadians will be in attendance at the reception and will include guests from business, sport, entertainment, charity and the media. The Canadian High Commissioner, His Excellency Gordon Campbell, will also be present.
As reported by Royal Central last month, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will visit Canada from 18th – 21st May 2014. The trip will have the Royal couple met a wide range of people from youngsters to veterans. The emphasis of the visit will be celebrating Canadian achievement.
According to Clarence House some of the highlights will include:
Charles and Camilla will also take part in events to honour the centenary of World War One, and the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference in Prince Edward Island that led to the Confederation of Canada.
This will be Charles’s 17th visit to Canada and the third for Camilla. Two years the royal couple travelled to New Brunswick, Ontario and Saskatchewan on a four-day tour. The couple visited Canada in 2012 to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
