Prince Charles' Canadian tour itinerary released: Queen's University expert


Queen’s University teaching fellow and royal historian Carolyn Harris is available to talk about Prince Charles’ and Camilla’s May 21-23 Canadian tour itinerary, which was announced today by Heritage Minister James Moore.

The royal couple will visit CFB Gagetown (N.B.), Saint John, Toronto and Regina as part of their trip in honour of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee.

“Gagetown CFB, Saint John, Toronto and Regina were not included in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s 2011 tour of Canada so the Jubilee Tour will bring the royal couple to an audience that has not recently experienced a royal tour,” says Ms Harris, who also blogs about the royals at www.royalhistorian.com. “The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are visiting with groups that traditionally enjoy a close relationship with the Crown, such as the Canadian Forces and the First Nations of Canada, and taking the opportunity to renew their personal relationships with Canadian organizations such as the Queen’s Own Rifles and the Regina Symphony Orchestra.”
