Prince William and Kate's visit to Ottawa during Canada Day was attended by an estimated 300,000 and the trend continued with a concertwith Kate still wearing the diamond maple leaf loaned to Kate by Queen Elizabeth II.
The couple unveiled an Augustus John war memorial mural at the Canadian War Museum.
The couple then left for Montreal where the schedule included a visit to a hospital and the presence of a small but vocal group of protesters, that reports say were drowned out as well as grossly outnumbered by supporters. This evening the pair attended a cooking class presented by Quebec’s top hotel and cooking school, the Institut de Tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec.
