Vancouver, BC – The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will fly to Bella Bella later this morning for an aerial tour of the Great Bear Rainforest, home to the unique Kermode Bears.
Their Royal Highnesses will then be welcomed by the Heiltsuk First Nation Community in a traditional cultural sharing ceremony at the Bella Bella community school. A short distance away at the Elders Lodge, Prince William will speak to the dedication of the Great Bear Rainforest to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy initiative.
The Royal couple will end the visit with a boat tour of McLoughlin Bay before flying back to Victoria, where a Black Rod Ceremony at Government House will close out day three of their tour.
The Duke and Duchess arrived in Victoria on Saturday with their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Yesterday, local MLA, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training, Shirley Bond, was part of the entourage accompanying their Royal Highnesses on a tour of the Immigrant Services Society of BC’s Welcome Centre in Vancouver.
Tomorrow, the Royal Tour travels to Kelowna and then on to Whitehorse.
