Our lucky neighbors to the north will soon be hosting the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It was announced today that the royal couple will head back to Canada this autumn. Though we don't know yet if George and Charlotte will be joining them, we do know William and Kate will be touring both British Columbia and Yukon.

From Royal.uk:

A spokesman for Kensington Palace said:
"The Duke and Duchess are delighted to be returning to Canada. They hold very happy memories from their visit in 2011 - their first overseas tour as a married couple. They arereally looking forward to seeing other parts of this beautiful country and having the opportunity to meet many more Canadians along the way."
His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, said:
“Sharon and I will be delighted to welcome Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Canada. Their Royal Tour will take them to the beautiful province of British Columbia and the scenic territory of Yukon. Once again, our true Canadian pride and spirit will shine and be at the very heart of this visit so they can feel at home.”

The Royal Family's Twitter account posted some photos of the happy couple living it up during their last Canadian visit.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who invited the couple in a letter earlier this month, extended a warm welcome to William and Kate over Twitter today:

An itinerary of this tour will be posted by the Department of Canadian Heritage. Attention, Canadian anglophiles/BHT readers: Please contact us if you can provide first-hand reports this fall!
