Prince Charles and his Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla will tour Ottawa on the second day of their royal visit. The visit marks the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This is the first time in five years the couple have visited Canada. The pair arrived in Newfoundland and Labrador Tuesday.
Charles explained the tour, just like the Platinum Jubilee, is “a celebration of people and service to community and country.” The prince gave a speech at the Confederation Building in St. John’s on Tuesday. He said himself and the Queen have become “very attached to Canada” as she’s been a Queen during much of “Canada’s history was written.”
The Queen has been present in the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway and the signing of the Constitution Act. Charles said “Personally, Canada and Canadians have had a very special place in my life since my very first visit here more than a half-century ago, … Time and again, I’ve seen what makes this country truly great.”
