Royal Visit to Canada, 1970

A few months after their massive tour to the South Pacific, the Prince of Wales and Princess Anne joined the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh for a 10-day visit to Canada on this day in 1970, to celebrate the Centennial of Manitoba and the Northwest Territories into Canada.

The highlight of the visit to the Northwest Territories was a Dinner at the City Hall in Yellowknife, where the Queen (in the Five Aquamarine Tiara) and Duke were joined by the Prince and Princess (wearing Princess Andrew’s Meander Tiara). The visit to Manitoba ended with a Banquet in Winnipeg, after which the Queen (still wearing the Girls of Great Britain & Ireland Tiara and her Coronation Necklace and Earrings) and Duke flew back to Britain while Prince Charles and Princess Anne went on an Official Visit to the United States.
