The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall to tour Canada this spring
Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will tour Canada in Spring of 2022 to mark the Queens Platinum Jubilee. Closing in on 70 years as the ruling monarch, Queen Elizabeth will become the longest-reigning ruler in British History.
The Prince and future Queen consort will spend three days touring the country with scheduled stops at hospitals and military posts. Prince Charles has visited Canada 18 times with the first coming in 1970.
“We look forward to welcoming The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall back to Canada. As part of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, their visit will be an opportunity for Canadians to celebrate this historic milestone. They will meet Canadians from coast to coast to coast, taking in unique landscapes, and learning more about the innovative work and inspiring local initiatives taking place in the Atlantic Region, Canada’s Capital Region, and the North.” Pablo Rodriguez, Minister of Canadian Heritage
The allure of having a member of the Royal Family visit has always been a welcomed spectacle. However, the popularity of the Royal Family has taken a dip in the last few years. From Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s exit from duties of the Royal Family to the underage sex scandal with Prince Andrew, a lot of the public wished they never came.
Whether you like them or hate them, they remain a vital part of governments throughout the world. While many countries seek their independence, the colonial rulers remain entrenched as the head of state for 43 sovereign states
The complete itinerary for the tour will be released in the coming weeks. In the meantime, the Government of Canada invites Canadians to visit the Royal Tour 2022 web page for the latest information and details.
