Regina will play host to Prince Edward and his wife Sophie for the next two days.
The Earl and Countess and Wessex are in town to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Globe Theatre and the 125th anniversary of the Government House.
The couple arrives Wednesday afternoon and will deliver their Royal Address from the Conexus Arts Centre.
On Thursday, the couple will go to the RCMP Heritage Centre for a photo-op, then will stop at Government House for a walkabout on Ceremonial Drive at 2 p.m.
Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield says the public is invited to attend the celebration at Government House on Thursday.
This is the countess’ first official visit to Saskatchewan. Prince Edward has been to the province before.
“Our province and its people have welcomed many members of the royal family over the years, and our connection to Canada’s sovereign remains strong,” Premier Brad Wall said in a statement.
“On behalf of the people of Saskatchewan, welcome to the Earl and Countess of Wessex on this, her very first visit to our province.”
Prince Edward, 48, was made the Earl of Wessex and Viscount Severn when he married Sophie in 1999.
The couple has two young children.
Edward will eventually be given the title Duke of Edinburgh, a title currently held by Prince Philip.
