OTTAWA - Prince William and his new bride will be entertained by a coast-to-coast roster of Canadian talent on Canada Day.
Performers for the royal couple on Parliament Hill include Great Big Sea, the Sam Roberts Band and Winnipeg's Maria Aragon.
The 10-year-old gained fans around the world after a video of her performing a Lady Gaga song was posted on YouTube.
Acts from seven provinces and one territory will be featured at the annual noon-day party, which will also be televised live.
It will be the first official trip for the newlyweds since their April wedding.
They'll also have the chance to watch the traditional flypast of CF-18s and Snowbirds.
