Royal Visitors
To North America

Prince William and Kate Middleton are planning on taking a trip to North America this summer. Here is your chance to see Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, up close and personal!

Prince William and Kate middletonPrince William and Kate Middleton, who is now officially known as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, are planning an 11-day tour to North America, with the majority of their time spent in Canada.

Called "their first royal tour," the newlyweds will visit Canada, where a St. James Palace source says they will experience "the diversity, vibrancy of Canada, its geography and people."

Here is their itinerary for Canada:

  • 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

They will then leave Canada and fly to Los Angeles on July 8 -- but don't expect them to be hobnobbing with the celebrities! "The couple views this as a working visit, not as an opportunity for them to meet celebrities," a palace source says.

Further details of their trip are expected to be released mid-June.

Although some say that Kate will have at least 40 different outfits on her travels, royal writer Judy Wade tells People they are mindful of the recession and do not want to flaunt their wealth.

"Kate is aware of the recession and cutbacks that people are facing, and will not want to be seen to be extravagant, but she is realizing that you cannot be in the public eye and be a fully-fledged royal without help with a dresser or someone like that," she says.

I know that Vogue magazine and Alex Shulman who assisted Catherine dutchess of Cambridge dress for many years since she was 1 years old, would agree. Women dictate the mode of the country says, Vogue magazine and a random walk down Wall Street. Men do not have all the answers, which is why God gave man woman.

As an 11th cousin of the the late Diana Spencer, and a distant relation of the Queen, Prince Charles and William and Harry, I cannot wait! Please let people know if the Cambridges plan on coming anywhere near NY City!
