The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will tour Canada in May, a spokesman has confirmed.

They will visit Manitoba, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, Canadian Governor General David Johnston said.

It will be Prince Charles's 17th visit to Canada and Camilla's third. They last visited Canada in 2012 to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Mr Johnston's office said the prince and duchess had accepted the Canadian government's invitation.

It said the royal tour would be co-ordinated by the Canadian secretary to the Queen Kevin MacLeod.

Prince Charles and Camilla took their first official trip as a married couple to Canada in 2011.

Clarence House confirmed the visit but declined to provide further details.
