In May, then-Prince Charles, now King Charles II, and his wife Camilla, now Queen Consort of the United Kingdom, paid a visit to Manor Park as part of a three-day Canada-wide tour.

They toured the RCMP stables and attended a special performance of the Musical Ride. (The Prince of Wales was appointed Honorary Commissioner of the RCMP in 2012.)

Before coming to Manor Park, they visited Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral on Byron Ave. for a short prayer service and a meeting with the local Ukrainian-Canadian community followed by a visit to Assumption Elementary School in Vanier.
