Prince Charles and his wife Camilla begin a four-day trip to Canada on Sunday in Halifax, and it will include stops in Pictou, N.S.,  the P.E.I. communities of Charlottetown, Bonshaw and Cornwall, as well as Winnipeg.

Though it will be the couple’s second Canadian tour since 2012, it will be the Duchess of Cornwall’s first time in the three provinces. It’s been 18 years since Charles was in Manitoba, while the two Maritime provinces have been waiting since 1983 for another visit from the Prince of Wales.
