Internal email leaked with details about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Canadian tour

An internal email from the Yukon government detailed plans for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s upcoming visit to the territory.

In the email, it was noted that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Grégoire will join Prince William and Kate while in the Yukon.

Another revelation made in the email is that the Royal couple is to arrive on 28 September and will spend a day with Gov. Gen. David Johnston, Prime Minister Trudeau and his wife.

The email continues to speak of unannounced events within “driving distance” of Whitehorse.  Sarah Crane, a Yukon government spokesperson said details in the email are not confirmed and have changed.

“It’s unconfirmed and developing,” Crane said, adding that they will not say what details have changed.

Kensington Palace has yet to release any confirmed dates for the trip either, only leaving speculation if the 28 September arrival date is one of those “developing” details.

In a previous statement, a Kensington Palace spokesperson said: “The Duke and Duchess are delighted to be returning to Canada. They hold very happy memories from their visit in 2011 – their first overseas tour as a married couple.

“They are really looking forward to seeing other parts of this beautiful country and having the opportunity to meet many more Canadians along the way.”

His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, said: “Sharon and I will be delighted to welcome Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Canada” upon the announcement of the tour.

“Their Royal Tour will take them to the beautiful province of British Columbia and the scenic territory of Yukon. Once again, our true Canadian pride and spirit will shine and be at the very heart of this visit so they can feel at home.”

The couple will also be touring British Columbia during their trip.
