William, Kate to fly Sea King, dragon boat race during Canadian visit
Prince William, a Royal Air Force search and rescue pilot, will join his Canadian counterparts in landing a Sea King helicopter during his first visit to Canada as a newlywed.
The royal tour kicks off in Ottawa, where the duke and duchess will visit the War Memorial and tomb of the unknown soldier the day before participating in Canada Day festivities on Parliament Hill.
Moving east through Quebec, they’ll get a chance to show off their domestic skills cooking with students from the Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec, before travelling to Prince Edward Island.
There, the newlyweds will be pitted against each other in dragon boat races across a lake at Dalvay-by-the-Sea, setting of the Anne of Green Gables novels of which Catherine is a longtime fan. (Photo: Toby Melville/Reuters)
