Details of the eight cities that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit on their summer tour of Canada have been released.

The couple's trip will be between 30 June and 8 July, although the detailed itinerary for the nine-day visit has not been officially released.

This will be their first official overseas trip as a married couple.

The duke and duchess will visit a range of destinations including Gatineau, Quebec City and Montreal.

They will also visit Summerside on Prince Edward Island in the east, nearby Charlottetown, and the remote settlement of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories.

Canada's airforce will fly the duke and duchess there and provide all their flights throughout the tour.

The royal couple will then travel to the US, where they will spend time in Los Angeles and the surrounding area on a three-day official visit, supporting Britain's interests in the US.

A St James's Palace spokesman said the Canadian government had themed the tour as "moving forward together from past accomplishments to current service and future achievements".
