The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend an event at Canada House to mark Commonwealth Day on Monday 11th March. The event will showcase and celebrate the diverse community of young Canadians living in London and around the UK.
During their visit, Their Royal Highnesses will have the opportunity to talk to groups of young Canadians from a wide range of sectors including fashion, the arts, business and academia, about their experiences as expats as well as opportunities for young people working in the Commonwealth.
The Duke and Duchess will also meet young people who will demonstrate a Canadian spring tradition of making maple taffy (maple syrup cooled on snow to make sweets) as part of a traditional ‘Cabane à sucre’ or a ‘Sugar Shack’.
Before departing, Their Royal Highnesses will attend a short reception and watch a musical performance. The High Commissioner, H.E. Ms. Janice Charette, will also deliver short remarks.
The UK is home to a dynamic and vibrant community of expat Canadians. Up to 500,000 Canadians currently live in the UK, a figure that reflects the strong, historic and enduring bond between the two countries.
