At age 18, Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, undertook the first Royal Tour to Canada. Among his stops in Canada West were Cobourg, Hiawatha First Nation, Peterborough and Port Hope. The community of Cobourg provided elaborate entertainment for the Prince at the official opening of the architecturally stunning Victoria Hall. George Parker, an expert in Architectural Science, is active in the Cobourg heritage community and will provide a lively account of Cobourg’s reception of the Prince and of controversy that surrounded the Prince’s visit to Canada West.
