Prince Floris and his wife Aimée are the guests of honour of the 42nd Dominion Convention of the Royal Canadian Legion. The Legion is godfather to the Dutch Prince, youngest son of Princess Margriet and Pieter van Vollenoven. Princes Margriet, younger sister of Dutch Queen Beatrix, was born in Ottawa, Canada, during the Dutch royal family’s exile there during the Second World War.
Prince Floris will also attend the first Prince Floris Charity Tournament, in support of the Poppy Fund of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Chief of the Defence Star General Rick Hillier’s Military Families Fund.
Participants of the golf tournament at the Hylands Golf Club in Ottawa, to be held on Monday 23 June, have a chance to tee off with the Prince. © RB
