The Cambridges On Tour: Canada, Day Five
The Cambridges began day five of their Canadian tour at the MacBride Museum in Whitehorse, Yukon, learning about the region’s history and joining in a storytelling session.
Before heading off to their next stop – Carcross – William and Kate fired off the first telegraph to tweet sent by the MacBride Museum telegraph office. They also had a quick walkabout, meeting a number of Whitehorse locals (including a five-month-old in a fluffy coverall that Prince William deemed most appropriate for the weather!).
Upon their arrival in the Carcross Commons, the couple were officially welcomed by Carcross/Tagish First Nation peoples with traditional dancing and music. They then added a small contribution to the Inland Tlingit and Tagish totem project, before being shown the town’s new community spaces.
It was then up Montana Mountain to watch mountain bikers from the Single Track to Success practice. William and Kate had a look inside the White Pass steam train when they got back down the mountain, carefully traversing the rail bridge to climb inside.
Kate wore a red Carolina Herrera coat for the events in Whitehorse, before changing into jeans and a grey wrap coat from Canadian label Sentaler.Filed under The United Kingdom
