The royal couple took to the stage at the Canadian Museum of Civilization alongside Immigration Minister Jason Kenney and Gov. Gen David Johnston shortly after 10:30 a.m. on Friday.
For today's celebrations, Kate chose an outfit with a nod to Canada Day. She wore an cream dress, red fascinator, red shoes and a colourful Anya Hindmarch fan-shaped clutch with tassel (marked down from £350 to £175 and sold out).
