Prince Charles will be in Canada for 11 days when he and Camilla land in St. John's, Newfoundland on Tuesday, November 3, 2009.
Unofficially, Charles and Camilla will attend 2 events together in Hamilton earlier in the day on Thursday, November 5. They will first visit Dundurn Castle, where Camilla's great-great-great-grandfather, Sir Allen MacNab, hosted the visiting Prince-of-Wales, Charles' great-great-grandfather, who later was crowned King Edward VII.
The second stop will be at Hamilton Harbour to open a small museum near the HMCS Haida.
After the ceremonies Camilla travels to Toronto, while Prince Charles heads to Niagara College's Niagara-on-the-Lake campus to commemorate the opening of the new Wine Visitor and Education Centre. (Charles will get a private tour through the centre speak with students and focus on new innovative techniques for agriculture in the production of wine.
Later Thursday, Charles returns to Toronto to be with Camilla.

Any idea where they are staying when in Toronto?? I would assume the Royal York since that is usually where the Queen stays, but wondering if it said it on the itinerary??

That is not where Camilla's Great Great Great Grandparents met, and both of them have no ancestry in Ottawa.
I don't know their itinerary but I do think they were to meet the prime-minister before they leave today.

I couldn't find out much information, it all was quite hush-hush.

Actually, they did come to Ottawa, they were here for Remembrance Day, I went to go see, but I was late and the crowds were ginormous.
