Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have announced the next royal tour destination: they will travel to Canada in May. The royal family’s trip is part of Queen Elizabeth II’s platinum jubilee celebrations, which celebrate the 70th anniversary of the United Kingdom’s monarch.
Despite going to North America, Camilla and Charles will not stop at the residence of Harry and Meghan, who are currently living in the United States, in California. The two have lived in the United States since leaving their royal job in early 2020.

The last real trip
Camilla and Charles travel to Canada after Kate Middleton and Prince William’s turbulent tour of Central America. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have faced protests over their visits to Belize, the Bahamas and Jamaica over the past month. In the latter country, a group of anti-monarchy protesters gathered in the Jamaican capital, Kingston, to demand an official apology from Britain.
A source told Us Weekly that Kate and William would “regret” to make the trip to the three countries that were formerly England’s former colonies, which profited from the slave trade of their people.
The source close to the couple said the trip was “difficult” and served the royal family “to open their eyes” regarding their role today.
Charles and Camilla are scheduled to tour Canada for three days and meet with communities in Newfoundland and Labrador, the Canadian Capital Region and the Northwest Territories. The trip will be Charles’ nineteenth visit to Canada and Camilla’s fifth. His last visit was in the summer of 2017.
In a statement, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office said he and his wife, Sophie, looked forward to welcoming Charles and Camilla and “showing some of the many reasons we are proud to be Canadians.”
Trudeau said the tour will be “an opportunity for Their Royal Highnesses to engage in various initiatives to honor the Queen’s service and dedication to our country and to meet inspiring Canadians who are making a difference in our communities.”
