VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Royal Couple is about to take Canada by storm on their first official overseas trip. Visiting five destinations throughout the country, Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will get a taste of the authentic Canadian experience that so many visitors crave. Headlining the itinerary? One exceptionally noble name: Prince Edward Island. Isn't it fitting that everyone's favorite Duke and Duchess experience a piece of Canadian royalty as well?
