Yukoners will get a chance to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during a tour this fall.
Today, Governor General David Johnston announced the couple will soon be visiting British Columbia and the Yukon.
“Our true Canadian pride and spirit will shine and be at the very heart of this visit so they can feel at home,” Johnston said in a statement.
This will be the second time the couple has visited Canada.
In 2011 they visited Montreal, Quebec, Charlottetown, Summerside, Yellowknife, Slave Lake and Calgary.
Yukon Premier Darrell Pasloski announced he is pleased the royal couple accepted the federal government’s invitation to visit the territory.
“The Commissioner of Yukon and I have been working to confirm a Royal visit to the territory, and we are thrilled about today’s announcement,” Pasloski said in a statement.
“A Royal Tour is a unique opportunity to showcase Yukon to the world and I know that Yukoners will make the most of this visit.”
The premier’s office will be publishing an itinerary for Yukoners who want to catch a glimpse of the royal couple.
