Queen Victoria's 18 year-old son, Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, visited the Province of Canada in 1860. John A. travelled with the Prince from Gaspé through Quebec City, Montreal, Arnprior, Almonte and Brockville before finally heading to Kingston where, on the shoreline, 15,000 Orangemen had assembled. The Loyal Orange Order was illegal in Britain and Prince Edward refused to break the laws of his own country. The royal party stayed aboard the boat and the Orangemen refused to leave the shore.
