Highlights from the royal family's tour of Canada.
Following the royal couple’s 2011 Tour, this visit is their second official tour to Canada, and their first as a family of four. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with their children—three-year-old George and one-year-old Charlotte, who will be making her royal visit debut—will have a jam-packed schedule and a chance to meet many Canadians along the way.
The weeklong tour runs from September 24 to October 1 and will kick-off in the west with a focus on British Columbia and Yukon. The itinerary includes stops in Victoria, Vancouver, Bella Bella, Kelowna, and Haida Gwaii in British Columbia, and Whitehorse and Carcross in the Yukon. "They are really looking forward to seeing other parts of this beautiful country," said a spokesman for Kensington Palace.
The Royals have a jam-packed schedule (with approximately 30 events planned) and will engage in a number of events, including a visit to the Great Bear rainforest, sampling British Columbia’s harvest, going fishing sailing a tall ship, along with a focus on a number of environmental and social issues. "The Royal Highnesses will highlight the many Canadians who volunteer or work in obscurity. This Tour, more than any other, features important engagements with Indigenous people," said The Honourable Melanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to welcome the royal family on Saturday in B. C. They will open the tour with a plaque unveiling for the veterans of the Afghanistan conflict.
We will be highlighting our favourite moments from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s visit. Stay tuned!
DAY 1 - Victoria, B.C.
The royal family arrived in Victoria, B.C. on Saturday, where they were greeted by Justin Trudeau, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, B.C. Premier Christy Clark and her son and B.C. Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon.
The family stepped off the plane wearing colour-coordinated outfits in white and blue. Kate wore a blue Jenny Packham dress, which was gorgeous, but a bit of a surprise for many who thought she might wear red. But she wasn't without any Canadian elements: she wore a maple leaf brooch on her lapel.
Thousands of Canadian fans gave the royal family a warm welcome outside the Legislative Assembly in Victoria.
"Catherine and I are delighted to be back in Canada," William told the crowd.
"We're so pleased that George and Charlotte could be with us in Canada this time around, beginning their own lifetime of friendship with this wonderful country."
Getty ImagesThe couple were officially welcomed by the Songhees First Nation and the ensuing ceremony included a performance by the Victoria Children's choir, a 21-gun salute and an official inspection of the honour guard.
Next stop? Vancouver on Sunday.
DAY 2 - Vancouver, B.C.
Will and Kate arrived in Vancouver at 11am on Sunday without George and Charlotte, who stayed in Victoria. As Prince William said yesterday during the welcoming ceremony, the royal couple is "very much looking forward to learning about how Canadians are tackling some of the biggest challenges of the day, including the environment, supporting young families, and the mental health of young people."
Their Vancouver itinerary focuses on a number of these issues, including a visit to an outreach program for pregnant women and women with young kids dealing with alcohol and drug issues in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, the welcome centre at the Immigrant Services Society of B.C., meeting young Canadian leaders who are making a difference and speaking about mental health issues that first responders face at the Kitsalano Coast Guard Station.
The couple will return to Victoria at the end of the day.

Looking for a delicious cookie to add to you holiday baking repertoire? We share 16 of our favourite drop cookie recipes for you to pick from.
Crispy sugar-dusted crusts surround perfectly soft, chewy centres in these chocolaty delights. The cookies are so addictive. With plenty of milk on standby, there's no telling how quickly they'll disappear.
Canadian Living has published many chocolate chip cookie recipes, but founding food editor Carol Ferguson's recipe, with a punchy hit of vanilla, is the standout. You can try making these cookies with all butter as well.
Ground chai tea and some additional ground chai spices give these buttery almond cookies a subtle, pleasing flavour. Find loose-leaf chai tea in bulk food stores or specialty tea shops. In a pinch, empty a tea bag or two to get the proper amount.
Tart sour cherries and dark chocolate are a delightful match - especially in this easy drop cookie. It's a guaranteed cookie exchange win.
Just a pinch of cinnamon takes white chocolate to even greater heights of flavour. It also acts as a delicious counterpoint to the gingery spice of these cookies, which are perfectly crispy on the outside and delectably chewy on the inside.
The coarse sugar on these licorice-flavoured drops glistens like snowballs. Split the remaining vanilla bean half and place in airtight container with 1/2 cup granulated sugar. The vanilla will permeate the sugar. Use it to sprinkle on scones or cookies, or in your morning coffee.
These rich morsels have a gorgeous crackle topping.
This twist on the traditional classic is sure to please everyone!
Recipes in early cookbooks, such as the 1915 edition of the Five Roses Cook Book, show that ginger cookies have been a favourite for generations.
These crispy ginger logs got their name because the thin chocolate coating on top makes them look like eclairs when they're lined up on a platter. Play around with other types of chocolate coating if you like – milk, dark and white chocolates are all delicious with the slightly spicy ginger.
Coarse sugar coats these delightful cookies, giving them an icy glow. Baking them just until the edges begin to firm up delivers chewy cookies; for crispier results, bake until the tops are firm too, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Keep in mind that these cookies harden while cooling, so it pays not to bake them until they're overly crisp.
Snowy white cookies, double-rolled in icing sugar, melt in your mouth and, if you don't watch out, will deliciously dust your holiday outfit.
Crystallized ginger adds an extra dose of zippy spice to these super-easy drop cookies. Walnut halves on top add a touch of elegance to your holiday cookie platters.
Made with only four ingredients, these chewy gluten-free drop cookies take just a few minutes to prepare. Walnuts don't keep well for extended periods at room temperature, so taste them before you begin to make sure they're fresh.
Honey-roasted peanuts add a sweet crunch to these favourite drop cookies.
Everyone loves a surprise, especially when it's a holiday favourite, such as the chocolate-covered almonds tucked inside these toasty macaroons. Be sure the coconut covers the almond completely or its chocolate will melt onto the pan and ruin the surprise.
