Following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent visit to Victoria, B.C., community leaders have started to ask themselves what their cities could offer to attract the attention and residence of nobility.
Salmon Arm Mayor Alan Harrison marvelled at the idea of the royal couple making a stop in the Shuswap on their next visit to B.C.
“I think the first thing would be to send out an invitation to them to come and visit the Shuswap and I would certainly be willing to do that,” he said.
Corryn Grayston executive director for the Salmon Arm Chamber of Commerce, came up with a brief itinerary for the royal couple to experience the Shuswap and its many sights and flavours.
The day could start with some stand-up paddle-board yoga on Shuswap Lake followed by lunch at the Shuswap Pie Company, she said. Next, a cool climate winery tour at Larch Hills, Recline Ridge or Sunny Brae wineries.
“I think that’s a pretty perfect day, and then they could finish off with an amazing dinner of locally sourced produce,” Grayston said.
