Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall and, the Prince of Wales kicked off their four-day Canadian tour for Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee earlier today May 21, 2012, celebrating Victoria Day with the citizens in New Brunswick, Canada.
This will be Charles’ 16th trip to Canada, with his first being as a British Navy helicopter pilot in the 1970’s at Canadian Forces Base Gagetown.
Charles and Camilla were given a 21-gun salute and given a warm welcome by Governor General David Johnston, Federal Heritage Minister James Moore and Premier David Alward.
While visiting CFB Gagetown, Camilla also wore a navy blue dress with matching coat that featured striped blue and white detailing at the top, accessorized with a matching blue and white hat.
Prince Charles also got to play a little bit of road hockey with children in Hazen White-St Francis School in Saint John, New Brunswick. Camilla and Charles also met locals in St John, including a traditional broom maker.
Whilst partaking in a ceremony for the swearing in of new Canadian citizens in St John, Duchess Camilla wore a blue, beige and white leaf patterned dress, topped off with a beige ruffle necked jacket, accessorized with a multi-strand pearl choker and beige pumps. Charles wore a medium blue suit with a crisp white shirt and red, blue and white striped tie.
The prince presented each new Canadian with a citizenship certificate while the Duchess gave them each a commemorative lapel pin.
As part of their citizenship oath, the new Canadians had to swear allegiance to Queen Elizabeth, her heir and successors.
Next stop for the royal couple is Toronto. Enjoy the slide show of Charles and Camilla’s Canadian trip and thanks for visiting along with me…
