Canada royal tour: Frigate sails to Quebec City
Published: 3rd Jul 2011 07:20:56
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on board a Canadian naval ship, travelling from Montreal to Quebec City, on the latest leg of their first overseas tour as a married couple.
Overnight they sailed up the St Lawrence river to the city on the frigate HMCS Montreal.
Their agenda for Sunday involves morning prayers with the crew on the helicopter deck of frigate.
They will then visit a youth project and attend a military ceremony.
The ceremony honours the Royal 22nd Regiment of Canada in the city, as well as a Freedom of the City Ceremony, at Quebec City Hall.
They will also attend a community event, including barbecues and stalls, before a short flight to Prince Edward Island.
Prince Edward Island is the most easterly point of the tour, and is known as the home of Anne of Green Gables - a fictional character said to be a favourite of the duchess.
The official welcome to Prince Edward Island is on Monday, and the Canadian government expects their visit may be a focal point for many well-wishers from across the Maritimes provinces, Clarence House said earlier.
On Monday, still on Prince Edward Island, Prince William will take part in a Sea King helicopter training session.
A dragon boat race is scheduled for later, with the husband and wife steering opposing teams.
Their first overseas tour has involved a tree-planting ceremony in the grounds of Government House, in Ottawa; a Montreal children's hospital visit; and a citizenship ceremony for 25 new Canadians who had come from 12 different countries.
They were also guests of honour for celebrations for Canada Day, when about 100,000 people joined events on Parliament Hill as part of a national holiday to mark the country's 144th birthday.
In Montreal there was a protest outside the hospital the couple visited, with about 60 protesters shouting "down with the monarchy" and "We will never bend, Willy go home!"
They also chanted "French Quebec!" and "Parasite go home!"
The couple are visiting seven Canadian cities in eight days in their first official overseas tour.
