THE DUKE & DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE IN CANADA, DAY ONE: OTTAWA

THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE IN CANADA, DAY ONE: OTTAWA

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived in Ottawa, Canada, beginning their nine-day tour of the country.  William and Catherine honored Canada’s war dead by placing a wreath at the National War Memorial.  They also greeted and shook hands with veterans and spectators who came to welcome them.

Prince William gave a speech saying, “Catherine and I are so delighted to be here in Canada. Instilled in us by our parents and grandparents, who love this country, we have been looking forward to this moment for a very long time – and before we were married, we both had a longing to come here together.”  The Duke of Cambridge gave part of his speech in French.  William, in reference to his French, added jokingly: “It will improve as we go on.”

Much attention is being focused on the Duchess of Cambridge’s numerous outfits during this tour.  In honor of Canada, Catherine wore Canadian labels on the first day.  For the trip from London, the duchess boarded her flight, dressed in a navy blazer over a dark colored dress, the blazer coming from Canadian label Smythe.  Upon her arrival in Ottawa, Catherine wore a navy lace dress designed by a Canadian, Erdem Moralioglu.  Tomorrow, the couple is scheduled to celebrate Canada Day in Ottawa.
