It looks like the two photos were taken during the same session with some photoshopping used to change the backgrounds and lighting. Otherwise, I don't know why they would wear the same outfits for both official visits.
Yes, Chris Jackson, the photographer, just tweeted that the photo was taken before the Canada trip. I was wondering,too.

So hence it has to be from the same session.

Why are there two coat of arms and wht does one have another crown and lion sitting on the top of the red crown? Who designed the coat of arms and what is the unicorn symbolic of? I think they are an adorable couple and that their children will be gorgeous whenever they are born!

The coat of arms on the right is Prince Williams, given to him on his 18th birthday, it consists of the escutcheon of the arms of the sovereign in right of the United Kingdom with a label for difference. As the eldest son of the Prince of Wales, Prince William's coat of arms has a label of three points. The escallop (seashell) alludes to his late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, whose Spencer coat of arms includes three escallops argent.

Catherine's coat of arms on the left combines that of Williams and her own.

The dexter supporter is a likewise crowned English lion; the sinister, a Scottish unicorn. According to legend a free unicorn was considered a very dangerous beast; therefore the heraldic unicorn is chained, as were both supporting unicorns in the Royal coat of arms of Scotland.

Dexter and sinister are terms used in heraldry to refer to specific locations in an escutcheon bearing a coat of arms and by extension also to a crest.

Not to be too nit-picky, but the coat of arms on the LEFT is William's coat of arms. The one on the RIGHT is Catharine's coat of arms. (I assume we're talking about the 2 coat of arms on the top of the first page of this thread, right?)

Lumutqueen is correct. William's is on the right - think in terms of holding a shield - the man's arms are dexter (right side) and the woman's arms are sinister (left side).

If we are talking about the 2 coat of arms on the top of the first page of this thread, then William's is clearly on the left (hence the Order of the Garter surrounding the arms of it's member)

I'm glad to see them starting to make more appearances! And this definitely sounds like another worthy cause.

Ok, I'm confused, exactly what are we talking about? Where can I see what we were talking about?

I'm in complete agreement. They're doing their country and family very proud.

I was wrong, William on the left and Catherine on the right. We are I believe as I am not the original questioner talking about the coats of arms at the top of the events page. On Catherine's coat of arms it is split into two, combining Williams an her own.

Now my friend is on a train to Hartlepool and his seat has had to be altered due to the arrival of royals. With HM, Charles, Harry and Andrew out of the country that leaves Anne, Catherine and The Earl and Countess. I am intrigued.

This was such a sweet article. They blossomed as individuals and as a couple.
