He will then present a new regimental colour to the Third Battalion of the Royal Canadian Regiment on the grounds of Queen's Park.

Regimental colours are a kind of ceremonial flag considered the most prized possession of every regiment.

The prince has served as the regiment's colonel-in-chief — an honorary title often bestowed on members of the Royal Family — since 1953.
