Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrive at the Canada Reception Centre on Thursday 30 June 2011 in the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport where they are greeted according to Canadian custom and protocol.
The Canadian has unveiled two new Royal flags created by the Canadian Heraldic Authority and approved by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
“These new flags created for The Prince of Wales and The Duke of Cambridge are magnificent expressions of our constitutional monarchy and heritage,” His Excellency said. “As we prepare to welcome Their Royal Highnesses to experience this marvelous country,"
" I am sure that many Canadians will take great interest in these new emblems. As head of the Canadian Heraldic Authority, I am delighted with the work of our Canadian heralds in preparing these designs.”
The two flags are based on Her Majesty The Queen’s personal flag for use in Canada, which uses the Royal Arms of Canada as its basis.
Since the flag was adopted in 1962, Her Majesty The Queen has been the only member of the Royal Family to have a flag for use in Canada.
The flag of The Duke of Cambridge was broken during the official welcoming ceremony for Their Royal Highnesses to Canada, at Rideau Hall.
