I’m sure that many of you will have seen the great photographs of Prince William and his wife Kate as they landed in Canada yesterday for their first official royal tour.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they are now officially known, had a warm welcome from Canadians and today will be celebrating Canada’s 144th birthday as 1st July is Canada Day.

I was fortunate enough to spend some of my childhood growing up in the beautiful country, and know that today is a really special occasion for Canadians as they celebrate the 1897 union of colonies which created Canada.

Luckily ‘Canada Day’ is a nation holiday so there is plenty of time to celebrate with BBQ’s, parades and a host of other festivities. I read that Prince William and Kate will be celebrating in Ottawa- hope they have a great time.

Celebrations don’t end in Canada. Here in the UK special Canada Day celebrations are taking place in one of London’s most recognised landmarks Trafalgar Square. Visitors can watch a classic Canadian hockey tournament, meet Canadian Paralympics and participate in lots of other fun Canadian themed activities.

Happy Canadian Day from myself and all at Bath-Knight!
