Princess Mar­griet of the Nether­lands and her hus­band Pi­eter van Vol­len­hoven are stop­ping in Hamil­ton and Burling­ton dur­ing their visit to Canada later this month.

The princess and her hus­band live in one of Burling­ton’s twin cities, Apel­doorn in the Nether­lands.

In Burling­ton, the two will speak to el­e­men­tary school stu­dents in­volved in an art and let­ter ex­change pro­gram, and high school stu­dents that con­nect and ex­change vis­its with stu­dents in Apel­doorn.

They will also at­tend a num­ber of events, in­clud­ing a pri­vate Burling­ton Teen Tour Band per­for­mance and a re­cep­tion with lo­cal veter­ans, and the Brant Street Pier will be lit or­ange dur­ing the evening of their of­fi­cial visit.

Residents are in­vited to at­tend a tree-plant­ing cer­e­mony at Apel­doorn Park on May 16 at 2 p.m.

The visit to Canada — from May 13 to 16 — is to deepen and foster the friend­ship be­tween Canada and the Nether­lands and to hon­our the an­niver­sary of the lib­er­a­tion of the Nether­lands by the Cana­dian Armed Forces dur­ing the Sec­ond World War.
