In around half-a-month, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will make a trip across the pond to Canada to celebrate the 150th birthday of the Commonwealth country.
The Canadian government has just issued the packed schedule for the three-day trip, starting off in the Northern Territory, Nunavut.
The 18th tour of Canada for the Prince of Wales and the fourth tour for the Duchess of Cornwall will begin with Prince Charles inspecting the Quarter Guard of Canadian Rangers and a traditional Inuit welcome.
From there, Prince Charles will take place in activities through Prince’s Charities Canada on promoting the Inuit language and another engagement on the environment and climate change effects in the Nothern Territory. The Duchess of Cornwall will be attending a meeting on improving health and the life of women in the North.
The Royal couple will reunite for a ‘community celebration’ with local performances before they depart for Canada’s capital region.
Their second day of the tour will take place in Trenton and Wellington, Ontario. The day starts off at 8 Wing-Canadian Forces Base Trenton where Their Royal Highnesses will meet Royal Canadian Air Force Members and be guided through the hangers.
Also included on the second day are a visit to beneficiaries and supporters of the Prince’s Operation Entrepreneur by Prince Charles, and as their Colonel-in-Chief, the Duchess of Cornwall will visit The Queen’s Own Rifles, an Army Reserve Regiment. 30 July will end with a visit to a local farmer’s market and the Norman Hardie Winery.
The final day of the tour, 1 July, Canada Day, will take place in Canada’s capital, Ottawa and border city Gatineau, Quebec. A 21-gun salute will be held during an Inspection of the Guard, a visit to the Canadian Museum of History and re-opening of the newly renovated National Arts Centre are all on the agenda.

Of course, TRH will take part in Canada Day celebrations on Parliment Hill and will unveil The Queen’s Entrance at Rideau Hall in honour of Her Majesty’s Sapphire Jubilee.
The quick trip will end with a farewell from dignitaries, as they will be honoured with a Departure Guard.
