Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, will be coming to Toronto in May and their visit will include a fireworks display to honour the prince’s great-great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria.

The couple  will arrive in the city for the Victoria Day long weekend – May 21 and 22 – as part of their three-day Canadian tour.

“We are delighted that Their Royal Highnesses will join Canadians in celebrating the 60th anniversary of her Majesty’s reign as Queen of Canada,” Canadian heritage minister James Moore said.

The two will tour Canada from May 20 to 23, the federal government said.

Less than a year ago, Charles’ son Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, visited Canada in a whirlwind nine-day tour that did not include a stop in Toronto. The visit was the couple’s first tour abroad since their April 29, 2011 wedding

Charles and Camilla’s visit will include stops at Prince Charles’ Canadian charities, The Prince’s Operation Entrepreneur and The Prince’s Seeing is Believing.

“The Prince of Wales is recognized globally as one of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs and has been involved in public life in Canada for over 40 years,” said Amanda Sherrington, president and CEO of Prince’s Charities Canada.

Operation Entrepreneur is a partnership program of the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF) and Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) Memorial. It allows members of the Canadian Forces to attend a business boot camp.
Seeing is Believing brings business executives to community organizations.  

It will be Charles’ 16th visit to Canada and Camilla’s second. The pair was last here in 2009.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will visit the Canadian Forces Base Gagetown, in Oromocto, N.B.; Saint John, N.B.; Toronto; and Regina.
