Canada Royal Visit 2016: Prince William, Kate Middleton To Tour B.C., Yukon This Fall

Posted: Updated:

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have accepted an invitation to visit Canada this fall, the governor general announced.

"Their Royal Tour will take them to the beautiful province of British Columbia and the scenic territory of Yukon. Our true Canadian pride and spirit will shine and be at the very heart of this visit so they can feel at home," said David Johnston in a news release Wednesday.

In July, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent an invitation to the duke and duchess to visit Canada with their kids.

It's unknown if Prince William and Kate Middleton will be bringing Prince George and Princess Charlotte on this trip. A detailed itinerary will be released at a later date, said Johnston.

This will be the royal couple's second visit to Canada. Their first tour of Canada in 2011 took them to Ontario, Quebec, P.E.I., Alberta and the N.W.T.

A spokesman for Kensington Palace said on Wednesday, "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."
