The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived at Ottawa Airport. The couple were greeted by Canada's Prime Minister, Stephen Harper. He unveiled a special flag made for the Royal couple with Prince William's seal of approval.
Kate has made her first outfit change also. She boarded the plane in a navy outfit but landed with her hair worn half up, half down and had changed into a beautiful Erdem Moralioglu Resort 2012 Cecile dress. Again choosing a Canadian designer. She also chose her favourite LK Bennett sledge 2 pumps with the clutch she wore to Prince Philip's 90th birthday celebrations. Anyone who changes on a plane and look that good deserves serious style points........What do you think of Kate's looks today? The Duchess has reportedly brought thirty outfits with her. The Queen who is said to be extremely fond of Kate has given her the option of taking any jewellery she wishes for the tour. I expect we shall see some classic pieces in the coming days.
The couple greeted onlookers at the airport and both appeared excited and enthusiastic about this historic visit. A young boy welcomed the Duchess of Cambridge. At the National War Memorial event where the couple paid their respects as the crowds began chanting 'We want Kate!' The couple stayed ten minutes longer than scheduled, meeting fans and Kate reportedly accepted the gift of a pillowcase made by Francine Dorian 'It's a tapestry I hope the couple will hang on their wall.'
William and Kate then arrived at Rideau hall where they were officially welcomed. William made a warm speech where he spoke of how he and Kate had longed to visit Canada prior to their marriage. The Duke of Cambridge even spoke in french and joked it would improve as they went along. Kate looked on adoringly. I love how her face is so animated and expressive. The crowds absolutely adore her. Kate mania has officially begun!
