Kate Middleton and Prince William will visit Canada in September. The royal couple will reportedly take their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte along with them.

A spokesman for Kensington Palace said: "The Duke and Duchess are delighted to be returning to Canada. They hold very happy memories from their visit in 2011 - their first overseas tour as a married couple. They arereally looking forward to seeing other parts of this beautiful country and having the opportunity to meet many more Canadians along the way."

According to Vanity Fair's Royal Watch, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are keen on taking their children along with them. A source said: ''We are told the children are coming and the itinerary is being coordinated accordingly. . . There will be a heavy focus on nature, the outdoors and there will be at least one private day factored into the trip. . . We're hearing hiking, walking and outdoor pursuits will feature while the family is in British Columbia. There's talk of going into the center where there are fresh water lakes and great kayaking."

"They really can't bear the idea of leaving Charlotte and George at home," the insider added. "Arrangements and logistics are being made for them to travel as a family and the flights have all been booked. Of course there has to be some fluidity with the plans involving such young children and there might be some last minute changes."
