“Young Royals on Tour. William and Catherine in Canada”, by Christina Blizzard.
(Dundurn Press, Toronto, Canada). 64 pages, with colour illustrations throughout.
In the summer of 2011 the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge set out to Canada for their first official tour. To mark that event, Christina Blizzard presents this souvenir giving a day by day account of the royal visit.
Canadians were clearly delighted with the royal couple’s friendliness and willingness to have a go at anything, from Dragon Boat racing to more traditional tree planting. The Duchess’s outfits wowed everyone.
Interspersed with details of William and Kate’s activities are facts and pictures of previous royal visits by senior royals, including King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, the present Queen and the Prince of Wales.
Public interest in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge doesn’t seem to have abated and, with plenty of colour illustrations of the couple, this lovely book is a fitting souvenir of their first overseas visit as man and wife.
