September 26< 2016 marked Day 3 of the 2016 Canada Tour. The Duke and Duchess traveled to rainy Bella Bella, Canada for a day of engagements. Due to the poor weather conditions the couple were not able to do the aerial tour of the Rainforest, something I’m sure they both would have enjoyed!
Upon arrival to Bella Bella Their Royal Highnesses attended an official welcome and performance from Bella Bella First Nations Community at the Wawiska Community Hall. The pair received many gifts and met with many locals.
Their next stop was to McLoughlin Bay for a short ceremony, marking the commitment of the rainforest to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy network. After, William and Kate travelled to Elder’s Lodge, where William gave a short speech to mark the dedication of the Great Bear Rainforest as part of the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy initiative. The visit concluded with a plaque unveiling to commemorate their visit.
There final engagement of the night was a Government of British Columbia reception at Government House where Their Royal Highnesses joined many political and civic leaders for a reconciliation ceremony. Catherine stunned in a dress by Preen by Thornton Bregazzi.
