The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to visit Canada in autumn

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Canada in the autumn; Kensington Palace have announced.

The announcement comes after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invited the entire Cambridge family to the country via a formal invitation sent to Kensington Palace.

It is not yet known whether Prince George or Princess Charlotte will join their parents on the visit.

The full itinerary has yet to be released, however, it has been confirmed the royal couple will visit British Columbia and the territory of Yukon at some point during their tour.

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.

“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 Duke and Duchess will begin their tour of Canada just a few months before the country celebrates it’s 150th anniversary. National celebrations are planned, with rumours of further royal tours to come.

This will be the William and Catherine’s second visit to Canada together. They last visited the country in 2011, the first overseas royal tour they undertook as a married couple.
