Royal newlyweds set to visit America after Canada

by Alister POOLE on May 6, 2011

Prince William and his wife will pay the US an official visit after their first foreign tour to Canada in the summer.

The newlyweds will extend their trip with their three-day visit to the US’ most populous state California from the 8th until the 10th of July, said their spokesman.

Through its official Twitter page, Clarence House announced the visit, saying that a full itinerary will be published later. The trip will be the first official visit that William has made the US although he has visited before in a private capacity. On the other hand, this will be Kate’s first trip to the States.

After he married the duchess on Friday in front of thousands at Westminster Abbey, the prince returned to assume his role as a search and rescue pilot of an RAF helicopter. The couple spent the weekend after their wedding in the UK, and will enjoy their honeymoon at a later date.

William and Kate will start their first joint official foreign trip by touring the Commonwealth’s largest country Canada from the 30th of June until the 8th of July. While there, they will visit the capital Ottawa, Alberta, Quebec, the Northwest Territories, and Prince Edward Island.

Speaking earlier on this year, the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper told how William’s visit is testament to Canada’s incredibly close relationship with the Royals. On the 1st of July, the newlyweds are expected to participate in Canada Day celebrations.
