Charlottetown, PE – Royal watchers will have the opportunity to see The Prince of Wales in person when he visits Holland College’s Prince of Wales Campus on Tuesday.

His Royal Highness will be on the campus to tour the Centre for Applied Science and Technology, one of only a few buildings in North America to have received a score of 100 per cent in a Green Globes energy analysis. Holland College president Brian McMillan said His Royal Highness will meet students, staff, and members of the business community, and learn about three programs related to urban development and environmental sustainability.

“His Royal Highness will meet instructors and students from the Architectural Technology, Energy Systems Engineering Technology, and Heritage Retrofit Carpentry programs, and learn more about our competency-based training,” he said.

His Royal Highness is scheduled to arrive at the Prince of Wales Campus at 11:40 a.m., and will be in the courtyard to unveil the new Prince of Wales Campus sign at 12:15 p.m.  President McMillan said the visit to the campus has historical significance, too.

“The predecessor of Holland College was named Prince of Wales College in honour of a visit in 1860 by the then Prince of Wales, later to become King Edward VII. We are thrilled that we are able to welcome the current Prince of Wales, and in this way add to the prestigious history of this campus,” he said.
