Prince William & Catherine Middleton to visit Canada -- That Most Loyal Realm Print E-mail
Written by Rafal Heydel-Mankoo   
Friday, 18 February 2011
Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton's first overseas trip as a married couple will be to Canada.

This is an excellent decision. In recent years Canada has demonstrated itself to be, arguably, the most loyal and royalist of The Queen's realms (along with NZ perhaps).

The remarkably warm reception accorded to The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh during their tour of Canada last year was noted by the Royal Household and it seems clear to me that they are hoping for a repeat for the newly married royal couple.

Thus the first major non-British event for the newly married couple will be to attend the Canada Day / Dominion Day festivities on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on July 1st (the day after they land in Canada).

The presence of The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh at Ottawa's festivities last July 1st drew a record crowd. We can be certain that a similar, if not greater, number will turnout to greet the young royals.  

The Royal Canadian Homecoming will be organised by veteran royal/ceremonial organiser, Kevin MacLeod CVO, Canadian Secretary to The Queen and Usher of the Black Rod. 

Canada's monarchist credentials were further demonstrated today in the statements issued by the Canadian Governor General and Prime Minister.

Congratulations to both.
