“Prince Edward Island is delighted to be included in this historic tour during 2014 as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference,” said Ghiz. “The Royal Tour is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the history, natural beauty, vibrant culture and people of our province.” Friday, Shelly Glover, minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, announced Charlottetown, Bonshaw and Cornwall as communities included in the 2014 Royal Tour. Royal Tour stops also include Manitoba and Nova Scotia.   There will be a number of opportunities for Islanders to see their Royal Highnesses, including Victoria Day celebrations and fireworks in Charlottetown on May 19.   “His Royal Highness last visited Prince Edward Island in 1983 and this will be Her Royal Highness’s first visit,” said Ghiz. “I encourage all Islanders to welcome Their Royal Highnesses to our beautiful Island by taking part in these celebrations.”   For the latest information regarding the 2014 Royal Tour to Prince Edward Island, check out the Prince Edward Island Government Facebook page, @InfoPEI on Twitter and www.gov.pe.ca/royaltour.
