William, Kate to bring young prince, princess on Canada trip

LONDON (AP) " Kensington Palace has announced that Prince William and his wife Kate will bring their two young children on an official visit to Canada later this month.

The trip announced Monday will mark the first official overseas jaunt for 1-year-old Princess Charlotte.

Her older brother Prince George, 3, is an old hand at royal travel, having already visited Australia and New Zealand on an official tour.

The public will have few chances to see Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Canadian officials said they will be with their parents for the arrival and departure in Victoria and possibly at one other event.

The palace said the royals will visit British Columbia and the Yukon from Sept. 24 until Oct. 1 after accepting an invitation from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Kate and William are planning more than 30 meetings on their trip. They will visit major cities including Vancouver and also travel to remote towns.
