Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway are set to kick off a three-day tour of Canada on Nov. 7. The royal couple will spend time in Ottawa and Toronto before concluding their visit in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.
While both the prince and princess have previously visited Canada on solo and personal trips, their visit in November will mark their first tour of the country as a couple.
Prince Haakon and Princess Mette-Marit will touch down in Ottawa on Nov. 7 before spending two days in Toronto (Nov. 8 and Nov. 9), during which time they will attend a screening of their country's Oscar entry, blockbuster The King's Choice, at the TIFF Bell Lightbox - the first screening outside of Norway. The couple will then head east to St. John's where they will wrap up their tour on Nov. 10.
The couple's children Princess Ingrid, 12, Prince Sverre Magnus, 10, and 19-year-old Marius will not join their parents on the Canadian visit.
While on Canadian soil, the royals hope to "reinforce bilateral connections between Canada and Norway" and "highlight common interests in the Arctic and show how we can work together to stimulate innovation and diversity," reads a statement from Anne Kari H. Ovind, Norway's Ambassador to Canada.
The couple's visit comes on the heels of the Cambridges royal appearance in the Great White North. In September, Prince William, Kate and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte spent eight days touring around British Columbia and Yukon, including a memorable appearance in Victoria that saw the young family steal the show at a children's party at Government House.
