    Princess Alexandra of Kent - on a 35,000-mile journey round the world, including a six-week stay in Australia - stopped en route in Canada for four days.

    The 22-year-old first cousin of Queen Elizabeth was the guest of Lieutenant Governor Ross and Mrs Ross at Government House in Victoria, British Columbia, August 10.

    Only one public engagement was scheduled for her - divine service at Christ Church Cathedral. The rest of the time she spent sightseeing, swimming and relaxing.

    Afterwards, Princess Alexandra left for Vancouver to board a Trans-Pacific airliner bound for Australia.
