The royal couple will participate in “the diversity [and] vibrancy of Canada, its geography and people,” a St. James’ Palace source told People.
The trip will mark the couple’s first post-wedding royal tour, an important part of maintaining their world presence as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the potential future king and queen of England. Plus Middleton is interested in learning more about her family’s history — her grandfather was stationed as a bomber pilot in Canada during World War II.
Although their American pit-stops have yet to be revealed, it has been announced that William and Middleton will travel from Montreal to Quebec to Calgary during the Canadian leg of their trip before flying to Los Angeles on July 8. But the pair won’t get caught up in the La-La Land celebrity world.
“The couple view this as a working visit, not as an opportunity for them to meet celebrities,” the palace source continued.
We hope that all work and no play won’t make for a dull royal couple. At least the pair won’t be bogged down by a royal fleet of security guards — Prince William and Middleton plan on keeping “their entourage to a minimum.” But with a rumored 40 different outfit changes throughout the tour, we have a feeling Middleton will need more than a few extra men to carry her bags.
