REGINA – A Prince will be making four stops in Saskatchewan during a royal tour in September.

Premier Brad Wall announced on Wednesday that Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex will be visiting Saskatchewan for the fifth time from September 17 to 19.

“On behalf of the people of Saskatchewan, we are pleased to welcome His Royal Highness back to our great province,” Wall said. “I encourage all citizens to take advantage of this unique opportunity to engage with a member of Canada’s Royal Family.”
