Royal Visits

Did you know Canada.. as I noted on twitter yesterday Prince William and his bride to be Catherine Middleton will be visiting Canada in June and July of this year - about 2 months after their wedding.

Looking back our last Royal visit was in July of 2010 when Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex visited Alberta. Also in June and July of 2010 Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh visited Winnipeg, Nova Scotia and Ontario celebrating the Canadian record of service. During this visit Her Majesty The Queen sat for a portrait photograph at Rideau Hall. The completed portrait is to be unveiled in 2012 for Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee.

Looking way back the first visit to Canada by a member of the Royal Family took place in 1786.
