Details have been announced for the Victoria Day concert in Charlottetown where Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will be special guests. 

The concert will begin at 6:30 pm on the grounds of Province House.

"It's just a really great, incredible P.E.I. lineup if you will, really to showcase Island talent to the royal couple when they come to visit," said Brenda Gallant of Tourism P.E.I.

The Royal couple will arrive at around 8:30 to take in the Island entertainment, which will include performers such as Tim Chaisson, Catherine MacLellan, Paper Lions and the Meds.

Brenda Gallant said there will also be a couple of comedic performances, including one with a royal flair.

"We have Wade Lynch who is going to be dressed as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth which I think is going to be absolutely incredible," said Gallant. 

"He is preparing a sketch with Anne of Green Gables and a Father of Confederation so we can't wait to see that one," she said. 

In addition to the concert there will be family activities and refreshments, such as hot dogs and ice cream.

The evening will end with a fireworks display over Charlottetown Harbour at 9 p.m.
