Princess Charlotte could be heading on her first ever royal tour next month as her parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to make an official visit Canada. A report by Sunday Times can tell that the Cambridges are all set for their eight-day trip.  The would be Prince George’s official trip who joined his parents on their Australia and New Zealand visit in 2014.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge received an invitation to visit Canada with their children from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, confirmed his spokesperson, Kate Purchase.

“The Prime Minister certainly has invited William and Kate and family to come to Canada whenever they are available on their schedule,” she said in a statement earlier this year.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hold Canada dear to their hearts since they made their first overseas visit their as a couple in 2011.

"They are really looking forward to seeing other parts of this beautiful country and having the opportunity to meet many more Canadians along the way," a spokesperson to the royal couple said.

Royal visits to Commonwealth realms where the British sovereign is the head of state often end extremely successful. In fact, Prince George’s presence in the trip to Australia and New Zealand help win over the Australians, toppling support for the republican movement, which saw its support fall to a 35 year low.
