Prince Charles and Camilla will visit Canada this month as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations where they will acknowledge the treatment of indigenous people, royal aides revealed.

The trip, which will be the 19th the heir-to-the-throne has undertaken to Canada, will see the couple travel more than 2,000 miles from Newfoundland and Labrador to the Northwest Territories over three days from May 17 to 19.

Clarence House said Charles ‘has long believed that we need to learn from indigenous peoples around the world how better we should live in and care for nature and the planet’, and that this tour ‘will highlight an emphasis on learning from indigenous peoples in Canada’ and focus on ‘a more sustainable way of living with global warming’.
