DAY EIGHT, JULY 7, 2011:  Calgary, Alberta

For the Cambridges’ arrival at Calgary International Airport, Catherine opted for a bright yellow short-sleeved dress, teamed with beige pumps and matching clutch bag.   The windy conditions at the airport meant that the Duchess of Cambridge tried to make sure that her dress did not fly in the wrong the direction.  Catherine and William toured the University of Calgary W21C Research and Innovation Center.  In the evening, for a government of Canada reception, Catherine changed into jeans and a long-sleeved blouse and in the spirit of the west, she donned the white cowboy hat she was given earlier in the day as part of the official welcome to Calgary.

DAY NINE, JULY 8, 2011:  Calgary, Alberta and Departure for the U.S.A.

For the official opening of the Calgary Stampede, the Duchess of Cambridge appeared in jeans, another long-sleeved blouse and her white cowboy hat again.  But her attire took on a more formal tone for the reception hosted by the Alberta Government and the official departure from Calgary International Airport.  For her final day, Catherine  was the lady in red.  She chose to honor her host country by wearing a red dress and matching coat, along with with the diamond Canadian Maple Leaf brooch lent to her by the Queen.
