The lucky royal couple will be treated to a 21-gun salute during a special Canada Day ceremony
Final Details of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first official tour have been released, revealing that the royal couple will be visiting at least nine cities during the 11-day, North America trip, and will be treated to a special ceremony on July 1’s Canada Day.
For their first official overseas trip as a married couple, Kate and William will embark on a 14,000 mile journey across North America and Canada, from 30 June to 10 July.
And to mark Canada Day on July 1, Prince William and Kate Middleton will take part in an extra special celebratory ceremony.
Officials have confirmed the royal couple will be met by the Prime minister and his family on Ottawa’s Parliament Hill, before enjoying a Royal Canadian Mounted Police escort to the ceremony.
It’s thought there will also be a dramatic, 21-gun salute and 18-strong fighter jet flyover at the event, before renditions of God Save the Queen and O Canada.
Prince William has also been scheduled to deliver a speech, before touring Parliament with his new wife.
The pair will leave Canada on July 8, where they’ll head to California to finish their journey.
