William and Kate have started the third day of their Canadian tour with a tree-planting ceremony at Government House that has become a royal family tradition.
Prince Charles, Princess Diana, and Queen Elizabeth II have all planted trees on previous visits to Rideau Hall, the official residece of both the Canadian monarch and Governor General of Canada.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge each wielded a shovel as they planted a Canadian hemlock — an evergreen tree known for its longevity.
Kate wore a mid-length, above-the-knee grey, Kensington shift dress, from Catherine Walker (a favourite designer of the late Princess Diana).
Next, the couple will head to the Canadian War Museum, where about 1,500 spectators are waiting to greet them.
