Britian's Prince William and Kate Middleton chose Canada for their first official visit as newly weds and as the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

I scoured the world wide web to present to you this collection of their visit. Looks like they had a super fun time!

The Royal Tour Itinerary

Among the events of their 9-day whirlwind tour:

June 30: Their first official function is laying a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Ottawa's National War Memorial. They will then head to Rideau Hall where they will be greeted by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Governor General and receive full military honours including a 21-gun salute. Afterwards, they will host a reception and youth barbecue in the garden of Government House with more than 120 Canadian youth who represent various community service causes.

July 1: Canada Day! The royals will witness a citizenship ceremony at the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Hull, Quebec and head to Parliament Hill for celebrations, where William will briefly address the crowd.

July 2: After a tree planting and a reception for war vets and war brides, the Royal couple leave for Montreal. Once in the French-Canadian city, they'll visit young cancer patients at Saint-Justine Hospital. Next, at the Institut de Tourisme et Hotellerie due Quebec, they will participate in a class of chefs in training. After a private dinner, William and Kate will check out a fireworks competition in the harbour -- and board the HMCS Montreal, a navy frigate, for a sail down the St. Lawrence River for an overnight boat trip to Quebec City.

July 3: The Royal couple will meet the Royal 22nd Regiment, the Van Doos, who have just returned from Afghanistan. Expect an inspection of the guard and a walkabout. They then head to the Citadel and after some down time depart for Levi Fort to participate in a fair. They depart by plane to Charlottetown where they will stay at Government House.

July 4: In the morning, they will tour Province House, and be greeted by the Fathers of Confederation on the steps. There will be a welcome by Premier Robert Ghiz and then a walkabout on George Street. Then they will head to Dalvay by the Sea. After a brief rest, they attend an outdoor reception complete with BBQ, dragon boat race and music. They will be greeted by Anne of Green Gables and do a walkabout. They depart for Summerside by helicopter where they will see a search and rescue demonstration and attend a reception for fishermen rescued by such teams. They leave for Yellowknife.

July 5: At Somba Ke Civic Plaza, the Royal couple will be welcomed by the premier and aboriginal leaders in a ceremony that includes prayer and drum songs. They will do a walkabout with aboriginal athletic events. At a Territorial Legislature for Youth Parliament event, young people from different ridings will come to the legislature and try to solve a problem of their choosing and report their results to William. The couple then travel by seaplane to Blatchford Lodge to meet with Canadian Rangers. After walking to Dechinta Centre, which tries to recapture the aboriginal language and culture for young people, they return to Yellowknife and retire for the night.

July 6: Private time for the newlyweds! William and Catherine leave for Calgary and will have a day to themselves at an undisclosed locale.

July 7: After visiting Foothills Hospital, they head to the BMO Centre for a reception hosted by Harper and his wife. There will be a gift presentation from the government of Canada to the couple and a speech by Harper.

Thank you for the lovely photos! Kate and William really look at each other with love. I am old enough to recall Diana and Charles on their wedding day, and he never looked at her like that. I hope they have a happy marriage and life together, in spite of all the conventions and formal occaisions they must attend.
