On Wednesday, Kensington Palace announced that the rumours we had heard of Will & Kate possibly visiting Canada this fall were not just speculation – they were true! William, Kate (and possibly Charlotte and George) will visit the Commonwealth country this coming fall.
As you will surely remember, Will & Kate toured Canada in 2011 as their first tour following their marriage. It was a highly successful tour which resulted in not only many of our favourite looks worn by the Duchess but also cemented her new place in the Royal Family.
Will & Kate also mention that they have fond memories of the country in this statement from Kensington Palace:
The Duke and Duchess are delighted to be returning to Canada. They hold very happy memories from their visit in 2011 – their first overseas tour as a married couple. They arereally looking forward to seeing other parts of this beautiful country and having the opportunity to meet many more Canadians along the way.
This tour has had no dates announced as of yet. It has been confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit British Columbia and the Yukon, which had not been included on their last itinerary. It’s highly likely that they will visit Vancouver, the largest city in BC (and my hometown!).
Let’s look back at some of our favourite looks from the last tour – will we see them again?!
The Canada Pin Brooch
Likelihood of seeing again? 10/10 – when else could she wear this but when visiting Canada? Definitely think we will see this one!
The Cowboy Hats
Likelihood of seeing again? 0/10 – the couple visited Calgary on their last trip, and the Stampede is in July… So this is definitely out!
The Lace Erdem Dress
Likelihood of seeing again? 3/10 – It was such an iconic look that we doubt she’ll revisit it again. BUT we think there is definitely a chance she will wear more from this Canadian designer!
The Alexander McQueen Blue & White Dress
Likelihood of seeing again? 1/10 – while I hope we will see this stunner again, I think it will likely be out as the visit will take place in the Fall and a white dress wouldn’t be as perfect for the occasion as we know the Duchess will be.
The Red Canada Fascinator
Likelihood of seeing again? 7/10 – Without knowing their itinerary, it’s hard to guess… But like the brooch, when else would she be able to re-wear this?
What looks are you hoping to see?
We will have LOTS of coverage coming up in advance of the tour – about the country, designers we might see and more. Stay tuned!
