Royal couple continue tour of Canada

Royal couple continue tour of Canada

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived in Québec for the next stage of their first official tour.

Montréal is first on the agenda, where both Prince William and his wife will visit a world-renowned children’s hospital and a cookery school.

Yesterday, the royal couple were guests of honour as they celebrated Canada Day with about 100,000 people in the capital Ottawa.

The day was a national holiday in Canada, as the country celebrates its 144th birthday.

A small group of separatists – which are seeking an independent Québec – are expected to protest during the day.

The couple will visit seven Canadian cities in nine days – at a cost of £958,580, not including security.

Prince William is expected to take part in Sea King helicopter training session on Prince Edward Island later this week, with a visit to Yellowknife, in the Northwest Territories, and the Calgary Stampede also on the agenda.


Also in North America today, City.Mobi is celebrating the success of its new guide to Montréal.
