With just one day to go before Prince William and Kate embark on their royal tour, our sister publication HELLO! Canada has released a video that royal watchers will love!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are due to arrive in Canada on Saturday, and as you can see in the footage below, they've got some amazing destinations on their itinerary.

The family will touch down in Victoria, British Columbia, where they will stay as guests of honour at Government House.

While George and Charlotte will be based in Victoria City, William and Kate will travel to six other locations in British Columbia and Yukon – Vancouver, Bella Bella, Kelowna, Whitehorse, Carcross and Haida Gwaii.

The Duke and Duchess will carry out more than 30 engagements in eight days, travelling more than 5,900 kilometres.

The tour will be outdoorsy, with mountain biking, canoeing, sailing and a trip to the Great Bear Rainforest all featuring on the itinerary. William and Kate have said they can't wait to explore the natural beauty of Canada.

They are also bringing causes they hold dear to their hearts across the pond. Mental health, addiction and child intervention are reflected in their charitable engagements.

When will we see Prince George and Princess Charlotte?

This is William and Kate's second official visit to Canada. They first visited as newlyweds just a couple of months after their 2011 royal wedding.

Canada remains one of the Queen's favourite places to visit – she has made the trip more than 20 times. Following in the Queen and Prince Philip's 1959 visit, the Duke and Duchess will attend a children's party in Victoria, which George and Charlotte are expected to attend.

William and Kate say it's an "honour" to visit Canada, and locals can't wait to welcome them!
