The Duchess of Cambridge's first trip to Canada and the US is shaping up to be full of memorable highlights – including a trip to one of the world's biggest rodeos.
Kate and Prince William will visit Alberta during the final Canada leg of their 11-day tour at the same time that the Calgary Stampede opens.
At the event, which bills itself as 'The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth' and is televised across Canada, the couple will have the chance to see bucking broncos, chuckwagon racing and generally soak up the festival atmosphere.
The royal couple will visit at least nine cities and travel more than 14,000 miles in 11 days during their first official tour together.
It runs from June 30 to July 10.
