Prince William and Kate's Canadian Vacation Plans Revealed

While word that Prince William and Kate Middleton will travel through Canada as part of their first North American tour is old news, it wasn't until today that details of their trip were revealed. And judging from their itinerary, it appears that the royal couple will be welcomed by fireworks, as they're set to arrive in the land of maple syrup and Justin Bieber on July 1, better known (up there) as Canada Day.

Yes, July 1 is not just the day that Selena Gomez's newest movie Monte Carlo hits theaters, it's also the day that marks Canada's independence from Britain. Oh, the irony!

According to People, the newlyweds will be welcomed by much more than just a fireworks display. After being greeted by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and a 21-gun salute, William and Kate are set to attend an hour long ceremony complete with a fighter-jet flyover and cheerful renditions of "O Canada."

We know what your'e thinking, and the answer is yes: Canada does have one fighter jet. And if the Ottawa Citizen is correct, hundreds of thousands of people will show up to see that jet -- and the royal couple too. More details on William and Kate's Canadian trip are expected in the coming days.
