It’s confirmed: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will bring their children along on their tour of British Columbia later this month.

A statement from Kenginston Palace say the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge look forward to introducing their family to Canada.
The next morning, the royal family will travel from Victoria to Vancouver by float plane, before receiving a civic welcome in Jack Poole Plaza.
From there, The Duke and Duchess will travel to the Downtown East Side to visit Sheway, a charity supporting mothers battling addiction.
In a statement, Vancouver Coastal Health said one mom is excited about the royal visit.
“It never crossed my mind that I would have the opportunity to be in the presence of the royal couple,” said Karen Starr in a statement.“My world is so different, but I’m excited that they want to hear stories about struggle and addiction.”
Starr said she wouldn’t be where she is today had ti not been for the support from Sheway.
She said she’s grateful for the opportunity to raise awareness.

The pair will also visit the Immigrant Services Society of BC, and the Kitsilano Coastguard Station, before travelling to the Great Bear Rainforest, Bella Bella, Kelowna, Yukon and Haida Gwaii.
As part of their visit, the Great Bear Rainforest will be receiving a special designation.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will officially endorse the Great Bear Rainforest under The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy initiative.
The initiative was launched in 2015 with the goal of uniting the Commonwealth’s 53 members in conserving forests for future generations.
This will be Their Royal Highness’s second official tour of Canada, having visited in 2011 shortly after their wedding.
