On the final day of Royal Tour Canada, October 01, 0216) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent their day in Victoria, BC, Canada. They started their day at Cridge Centre for the Family. A charity that supports the youth and the elderly and offers a wide variety of support. The Duke and Duchess spent much time greeting well wishers. After visiting the centre the couple visited a local cafe where they met families who have benefited from the services offered by the Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre.
In the afternoon, the couple toured Victoria Harbor aboard a Tall Ship piloted by a crew from the Sail and Life Training Society (SALTS), a charity using sailing to help build life skills. Again, the couple spent time greeting well wishers for the last time on this tour.
After a quick wardrobe change the eight day Royal Tour of Canada concluded when The Cambridges arrived at the Victoria Harbour seaplane terminal. Ahead of their departure Kensington Palace released the following statement from Prince William:
“Catherine and I are incredibly grateful to the people of Canada for the warmth and hospitality they have extended to our family over the last week. We have loved our time in British Columbia and Yukon and will never forget the beautiful places we have seen and the many people who have been kind enough to come to welcome us in person. We feel very lucky to have been able to introduce George and Charlotte to Canada. This country will play a big part in the lives of our children and we have created such happy memories for our family during this visit. Canada is a country of optimism, generosity and unrivalled natural beauty. I hope we have helped all Canadians celebrate what makes this country great. We will see you again soon.”
