William & Kate Leave Yellowknife for Slave Lake

Prince William and Kate have bid farewell to northern Canada and are on their way to visit the Alberta community of Slave Lake, which was badly damaged by fire.

Slave Lake was not on the official royal itinerary, but the couple wanted to make the detour to show support for the many people who lost everything. More than 400 homes and businesses were reduced to ash and debris when a wind-whipped forest fire swept through the town in May.

The couple will tour devastated neighbourhoods by minibus and meet with residents, firefighters and rescue crews.

They will then depart for some private time at an undisclosed location before their next official stop in Calgary late Thursday afternoon.

Kate wore the same navy Toronto-based Smythe les Vestes blazer she chose to depart the UK, her favoured pair of JBrand skin tight jeans and Pied A Terre black wedges with a cream ruffled chiffon shirt.

Kate's belt has been ID'd! It is from Linda Camm

Linda Camm works with a woman's group in Tanzania to create these beautiful pieces.

Update 7/13/11

The cream ruffled chiffon shirt that Kate is wearing has been ID'd. It is the Lauren by Ralph Lauren Chiffon ruffle blouse £120. It is from a past season and no longer available.
