The Canadian Royal Tour: See All The Pictures

Get ready to see some adorable snaps...

The Royal family touched down in Canada last weekend for their next international tour. Excitement levels are at an all time high for this trip as Wills and Kate will be taking both George and Charlotte on their week long tour of the country.

While George was famously taken on the couple’s trip to New Zealand when he was just eight months, this is Charlotte’s royal tour debut and the first time the whole family have embarked on such a trip.

A jam packed itinerary lies ahead for the famous foursome with a trip to majestic Great Bear Rainforest, a tea party and a canoe trip on the agenda.

The family will be based at Government House in Victoria for the week where the children will be looked after nannies while their parents carry out around thirty royal engagements.

With this trip - essentially a week long photo opportunity - we’re guaranteed to see some seriously cute pics of the famously private family.

The Royal family arrived in Victoria Airport on 24 September to embark upon their eight day visit to Canada

Their first photocall was on arrival at Victoria Airport on Saturday. The family arrived on a Canadian Air Force plane where they were greeted by the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie.

The following day, Wills and Kate visited the Immigrant Services Society, a charity which offers support to refugees, women and children. Charlotte and George did not attend and instead stayed with the family's nanny.

Kate and Wills joined the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Trudeau on a visit to the Immigrant Services Society of British Columbia New Welcome Centre.

Kate Middleton opted for a red and white dress by Alexander McQueen, the fashion house responsible for her iconic wedding dress.

On day three William and Kate were welcomed to British Columbia by the Heiltsuk First Nations Commuity. Kate looked relaxed in tight jeans, a navy knit sweater, a beige jacket and gold earrings designed by Canadian-born Pippa Small.

They also visited the Great Bear rainforest - the world's largest temperate rainforest and home of the Kermode bear (or spirit bear).

At the Government of British Columbia reception Kate looked divine in a scarlet Preen by Thornton Bregazzi gown, adorned with a diamond maple leaf brooch.

The couple then visited Mission Hill Winery in Kelowna and tasted some Canadian delicacy. Later they attended a volleyball game at the University of British Columbia in Kelowna.

Kate and William then flew to Whitehorse, Yukon - north Canada. Style icon Kate kept warm in a green Hobbs coat, with a bespoke green Dolce and Gabbana gown underneath.

Whilst in Whitehorse the couple visited the MacBride Museum of Yukon History. Kate wore a scarlet red coat by Carolina Herrera, with burgundy heels and clutch.

Later they were welcomed in Carcross, Yukon, by Tagish First Nation people. Kate dressed down in a grey cardigan coat by Candian designer Sentaler and earrings by Yukon-born Shelley Macdonald. They also visited Carcross Commons and Montana Mountain.

Yesterday, the Royal family attended a children's party at Government House in Victoria. The event, held for military families, transformed into a petting zoo.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were in attendance this time, with George riding a miniature pony and popping bubbles with other children.

Princess Charlotte met a rabbit named Smores and even said her first word in public, "pop", as the balloons filled Government House. How sweet.
