OTTAWA — A citizenship court ceremony in Saint John, N.B., a tour of the digital media zone at Ryerson University in Toronto, and a reception with Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Regina are just three of many stops for Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall during their whirlwind Canadian tour later this month. The full itinerary of the May 20-23 tour, part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, was released Friday morning by Canadian Heritage.

The Royal couple will arrive at the Saint John International Airport just before 8 p.m. local time on May 20.
They will be officially welcomed by Governor General David Johnston the next morning at CFB Gagetown, an event that includes a 21-gun salute.
"This special Diamond Jubilee Tour will include a range of events, from large public venues where Canadians will have an opportunity to see Their Royal Highnesses, to intimate meetings with volunteers, students, teachers and veterans," said James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage, in a statement.
"We look forward to showing their Royal Highnesses some of the best of what Canada has to offer."
The tour will also include stops in Toronto, where the couple will ride on a Toronto Transit Commission bus, inspect The Queen's own Rifles of Canada, and visit the historic Distillery District. In Regina the royal couple will tour of the First Nations University and attend a performance by the Regina Symphony Orchestra.
