- Trip portion of Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebration, Clarence House states.
- Prince Charles and his spouse, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will be visiting Canada in May.
Prince Charles and his partner, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will be visiting Canada in May to mark Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee this year.
Queen Elizabeth celebrated 70 years as ruler in early February.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will be making visits to Newfoundland, Ottawa, and the Northwest Territories during their expedition, according to a press release from Clarence House.
The press release stated that more details about the journey would be released later.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he would receive the royal pair next month.
“They will have the incredible chance of seeing first-hand the diversity and compassion of Canadians and the beauty of our great natural landscapes that make us proud to call our nation home,” he said.
Gov. Gen. Mary Simon also released a report saying she was looking ahead to greeting the couple.
“This visit is a possibility for us to showcase the development of our nation, our various and inclusive society, and the strength of Indigenous communities,” she stated in her announcement.
The Prince and Duchess earlier visited Canada in 2017 during the nation’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, where they made visits to Ottawa, Iqaluit, and the military base in Trenton, Ont.
Canada visit follows the contentious Caribbean tour
The statement follows a royal trip that saw Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, visit Belize, Jamaica, and the Bahamas in February in a proposal to shore up relations between Britain and those nations.
Instead, the trip attracted rallies and public demands for reparations for slavery and saw a surprising report from Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness that his nation plans to cut relations with the monarchy and become a republic.
