Merritt's mayor to meet royal couple

It could be called one of the perks of being mayor.

Merritt Mayor, Susan Roline, will get to meet and greet British royalty in Vancouver Saturday as they tour B.C.

Roline was offered an invitation from Okanagan-Coquihalla MP Stockwell Day, reports CKMQ's Al Clarke.

“Stockwell Day had some invitations that he was able to give out to attend this reception and he gave me a call last Friday and asked if I'd be interested. I responded 'oh, yeah!' So we are headed down there on Saturday,” says Roline.

She says she is looking forward to speaking with Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall during the reception.
