The royals are coming... the royals are coming! Prince William and Kate Middleton are just a few weeks away from their US trip and of course there’s a big schedule involved. Think of it as the royal US tour.
Details of the couple’s 11-day tour were announced Monday, and, among the sights they'll see, the two will experience "the diversity, vibrancy of Canada, its geography and people," says a source at St. James's Palace.
The Canadian leg of their visit is set as follows:
June 30-July 2: The National Capital Region (Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Quebec)
July 2: Montreal
July 3: Quebec City
July 3-4: Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
July 4: Summerside, Prince Edward Island
July 4-6: Yellowknife, Northwest Territories
July 6-8: Calgary, Alberta
On July 8th they’ll fly to Los Angeles presumably to rub elbows with all their celebrity fans. But of course those details are being downplayed.
"The couple view this as a working visit, not as an opportunity for them to meet celebrities," the palace source says. They'll be promoting Britain through "the prism of their own interests."
Beside California is super broke, Will and Kate want to “keep their entourage to a minimum” and avoid having a lavish vacation. By all means, go big! We can use all the help we can get. Spend away, stay at expensive hotels and eat the expensive food. You two can help save California alone.
