Kate Middleton and Prince William wrap Canadian tour with fishing trip in Haida Gwaii


A day after Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s fun play date, William and Kate took advantage of the penultimate day of their tour to explore the Haida Gwaii archipelago, made up of several small islands formerly known as the “Queen Charlotte Islands.”

The Duke and Duchess arrived in the small archipelago in British Columbia aboard the replica of a war canoe that was led by 12 Haida warriors.

The royals were greeted by more than a dozen leaders and Aboriginal elders and hundreds of people at the Haida Heritage Centre and Museum.

William and Kate sought to discover the cultural heritage of the First Nation, as they were accompanied by paddlers and drummers of the Haida community.

At the Haida Heritage Centre, they learned about the traditional production of totems and other cultural practices, including song and dance.

The pair and their two children, George and Charlotte, are leaving Canada on Saturday.
