Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, are set to return to Canada this spring.

The royal couple will visit Manitoba, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island in May, Rideau Hall said in a release Thursday.

Details have yet to be released.

Gov. Gen. David Johnston said the couple accepted an invitation by the federal government.

"Sharon and I are looking forward to seeing them once again as they spend some time here in Canada," Johnston tweeted.

The couple were last in Canada in May 2012 and made stops in New Brunswick, Ontario and Saskatchewan. This will be the 17th time Prince Charles has toured the country, and the third tour for Camilla.

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown and Quebec conferences, which ultimately led to confederation.
