The newlyweds, more formally known as the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge, plan to visit eight cities during their July visit to Canada, their first overseas royal tour as a married couple, palace officials have announced.

William and Kate will begin their tour in Ottawa from 30 June to 2 July and then head to Montreal on the 2nd.

From there, they will head to Quebec City on the 3rd; Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island from 3-4 July; Summerside, Prince Edward Island on the 4th; Yellowknife, Northwest Territories between 4-6 July; and finally Calgary, Alberta from 6-8 July.

William is no stranger to Canada having visited Ontario province with his family in 1991 and then Vancouver in 1998 with his father Prince Charles and brother Prince Harry.

A royal source said: “The couple are very much looking forward to their first joint royal tour. Their purpose is to strengthen the very strong ties that exist between Canada and their royal family and for the duke and the duchess to get to know Canada better.”

After Canada, William and Kate will fly to Los Angeles for a two day visit. Although they insist the Los Angeles leg of their journey is also work related, their visit to Hollywood could include a BAFTA event. And when asked if the couple would be meeting some Hollywood A-listers, a St James’s Palace spokesman said: “They may well bump into one or two stars at some point.”
