Prince William and his new wife Kate have been in Canada for almost a week now. It's the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first official overseas visit since their April 29 wedding, and their subjects in North America are giving them quite a comprehensive tour. (Canada, of course, is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, formerly known as the British Commonwealth, and Will's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, is their monarch.) Here's a sampling of the activities so far on Will and Kate's excellent adventure.
Just after stepping off the plane in Ottawa, Will and Kate met with Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper. William gave some remarks and checked out the soldiers.
Their second day happened to be Canada Day, and the Royal couple visited Parliament Hill, where they saw an air show by the Snowbirds, Canada's equivalent to the Blue Angels. Kate evidently dressed up like the Canadian flag.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge next planted a tree in Ottawa next to one planted by the Prince and Princess of Wales in 1983.
In Montreal on their third day, Will and Kate took part in a cooking workshop at the Institut De Tourisme et D'hotellerie Du Quebec, also known as a photo op.
