Greeting them at Victoria International Airport was Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, who then whisked the couple to the British Columbia Legislature in Victoria for a welcoming ceremony. During their official tour, the British royal family will head west of the country where they will engage in around 30 official visits including Whitehorse's MacBride Museum of Yukon History as well as the new Haida Gwaii General Hospital.
