Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, meets with the public at the Moose Jaw Armouries on Wednesday
Today is the day Royalty comes to Swift Current.
Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, will arrive in the city today to wrap up a three-day Royal Tour of Saskatchewan, and the public is encouraged to welcome His Royal Highness this afternoon at the new All Saints Catholic and Ecole Centennial School
“As Mayor Schafer said, we can’t think of a greater gift for Swift Current’s Centennial than the opportunity for our residents to welcome a member of Canada’s Royal Family to our city,” said Tim Marcus, Deputy Chief Administrative Officer for the City of Swift Current.
Prince Edward will arrive at the school and meet with the public at around 1:50pm this afternoon, and while the school will be closed to the public, Marcus says a greeting area will be set up for royal watchers outside of the integrated facility.
“Vistors are asked to arrive about an hour before the event,” he added. “Access to the school’s parking areas will be barricaded, but as you drive up the road off the Number 4 Highway, parking areas will be made available off of the road. Visitors will be directed to the parking area, and then to the greeting area, where they can meet His Royal Highness.”
Marcus adds in the near future, a plaque will be erected to commemorate Prince Edward’s visit and celebrate Swift Current’s centennial.
