British royals head home after Canada visit

0

VICTORIA, Canada: Britain’s Prince William and his wife Kate left British Columbia’s capital Saturday to the cheers of a crowd as they headed home after weeklong visit. The royal couple and their small children George and Charlotte have spent a week touring nature sites in British Columbia and the Yukon territory, meeting with everyday Canadians, some of them enduring hard times. The government, criticized for hosting the costly visit — the couple’s previous visit in 2011 cost 1.2 million Canadian dollars (800,000 euros) — gave the couple a going away gift. It was a donation of 100,000 Canadian dollars that will go to two charities in Canada, benefiting indigenous people and immigrants.
