Royalty at Sainte-Marie

This Sunday, September 16th, the Earl and Countess of Wessex aka. Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones will be visiting Sainte-Marie among the Hurons.  This is the first time British royalty has visited the site, which as many of you are aware (but as the press release unfortunately neglects to point out) is a reconstructed French Jesuit mission compound which catered to the Huron-Wendat between 1639 and 1649.   

The public is invited to take part in the occasion.  Sainte-Marie plans an "extensive, fun, and highly animated experience" for the Royal couple as they tour the site around noontime.  It's not Kate and Will, but it'll have to do for the good people of Georgian Bay.
