Prince William and his wife Kate are including B.C. stops on a visit to Canada this fall.

Gov. Gen. David Johnston announced the Royal visit Wednesday.

"Our true Canadian pride and spirit will shine and be at the very heart of this visit so they can feel at home," Johnston said in a statement.

This will be the second visit to Canada but a first trip to B.C. for Duke and Duchess of Cambridge since they married five years ago.

“British Columbia is pleased to hear the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen to highlight British Columbia on their Royal Tour this fall,” said Premier Christy Clark.

“Like the Olympics, Women’s World Cup, Expo 86 and other international events, the Royal Tour will focus global attention on B.C. and showcase everything British Columbians take pride in, from our unmatched natural beauty to our thriving, diverse communities.”

There was no mention of whether the couple’s children, George and Charlotte, will be brought along for the tour. Details of the visit will be made available in the months leading up to their arrival.

On their first Canadian visit shortly after their marriage in 2011, the couple visited Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, PEI, Yellowknife, Calgary and Slave Lake, Alta., following a devastating wildfire that swept through the community.
