Prince Charles sails through high-stakes Canada trip

A version of this story appeared in the May 20 edition of CNN’s Royal News, a weekly dispatch bringing you the inside track on Britain’s royal family. 여기에서 가입하세요.

런던 Royal tours aren’t always a success. Since restarting their global travels in the wake of the pandemic, some members of the royal family have endured awkward encounters while interacting with leaders or protesters.

So there will be a sense of relief that 찰스 왕자visit to Canada was met with rave reviews.
Charles was greeted by crowds of flag-waving Canadians when he arrived in Ottawa and throughout his stay. He hobnobbed with politicians and deftly handled complicated questions about the royal family’s history, all while making the most of some photo opportunities.
    It was important to get this trip right. Canada was one of the five founding members of the Commonwealth, and its relationship with the royal family has generally been a warm and reciprocal one. 월요일에, the country will celebrate Victoria Day, which marks the 19th-century monarch’s birthday.
      Her great-great-granddaughter 엘리자베스 여왕 has made a staggering 22 trips to the country, more than to any other Commonwealth nation. 에 2002, she visited during her Golden Jubilee celebrations and dropped a ceremonial puck before an ice hockey game between the Vancouver Canucks and the San Jose Sharks.
        And Charles has frequently made the journey, 너무 — he’s appeared alone, with Princess Diana and with Camilla, 콘월 공작 부인. 에 1998, he memorably hit the slopes in Whistler with William and Harry.

        But this latest visit was his first in five yearsand it came at a time when his visibility is increasing as the Queen, who has suffered from mobility problems, slims down her diary.
          Charles has been the heir to the throne from the moment he was born, but in recent months he’s been increasingly forced to take on duties that remind people he’s the future King.
          And trips to nations where they are the head of state are an important part of any monarch’s reign.
          그걸 염두에 두고, Charles’ itinerary in Canada could provide clues to the sort of King he wants to be.
          The environment has been a topic close to his heart for decades, and this was a big theme of his tour. He led a roundtable discussion on the climate emergency with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and spoke with locals in Yellowknife, northwest Canada about the impact of climate change on the community.
          Trudeau praised Charles’ “commitment to Canada, to Canadians, and to building a cleaner futureon Twitter after welcoming the Prince of Wales.
          There were somber moments, 너무. Charles honored Canada’s war dead during a wreath-laying ceremony, and he attended a service at a Ukrainian church in Ottawa, before speaking with members of the local Ukrainian community.

          He also provided royal fans with plenty of light-hearted moments. He tested out a snowmobile, swayed with tribe members during a Dene drum dance and enthusiastically watched a parade by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police on Thursday.
          At one point during his hectic itinerary, Charles extolled the virtues of a Canadian staplemaple syrupproclaiming itgreat stuff,” according to the PA Media news agency.
          But the legacy of historical wrongs has increasingly lingered over royal trips in recent months, and perhaps the most important element of Charlestrip was how adeptly he addressed those concerns.
          Canada is in the grip of a national scandal over the deaths and abuse of indigenous children in residential schools, and the National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations said she pressed Charles for an apology from the Queen, given her role as head of the Anglican church, which ran some of the schools.
          I also asked for an apology for the failures of the Crown in that relationship that we have with them,” RoseAnne Archibald said, according to PA.
          Charles did not offer an apology butrecognised there had been failures by those who are responsible for that relationship,” 어느 “really meant something,” Archibald said.
          Earlier in the trip, PA reported that Charles told dignitaries: “We must find new ways to come to terms with the darker and more difficult aspects of the past: acknowledging, reconciling and striving to do better. It is a process that starts with listening.
          Charles has taken part in many royal tours over the decades, so perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise that he can tick off a visit to a Commonwealth nation as a success.
          But as the royal family navigates its changing role in the world, and as the gradual process of transition begins to take shape, Charles can expect a greater focus on where he travels, how oftenand how it goes.
