Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge arrived for a visit to first nations Community members for an Official welcome performance today in Bella Bella, Canada.
The world’s largest temperate rainforest is home to the Kermode – Spirit bear, as well as whales, sea otters and dolphins. After arriving at Bella Bella airport they watched a youth performance then travel to Mcloughlin Bay to see a walking trail. There was a float plane trip planned as well which was canceled due to severe weather in Western Canada.
The Duchess rocked a tan Holland and Holland jacket over a skinny pair of Zara jeans and to keep her feet dry from the heavy rain Kate wore the Penelope Chilvers long tassel boots which she has had for over a decade. She first debuted the pair back in 2004.

William said in a speech at “The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy”: “Ladies and Gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to be here today as the Great Bear Rainforest is officially committed to the Queen’s. This is a substantial dedication which will highlight a more collaborative approach to sustainable forest conservation. Other Commonwealth countries will benefit from sharing the knowledge and expertise you have gained by working together with First Nations, industry and environmental organisations to establish this unique forestry management programme.”
“The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy was launched by Her Majesty in Malta last year. An appeal has been made to all 53 Commonwealth nations to contribute areas of indigenous forest, to be preserved in perpetuity in The Queen’s name, marking Her Majesty’s service to the Commonwealth.”
The royal family are visiting Canada as part of an eight day visit to the country taking in areas such as Bella Bella, Whitehorse and Kelowna.
