Kate dresses casually in Burberry shirt for activities in Yellowknife, Canada

During the 2011 Royal Tour of North America, William and Kate visited Yellowknife, in the Northwest Territories.  We covered the morning of their visit in a previous blog post.  In the afternoon, the royal duo hopped aboard a float plane for Blachford Lake.

William and Kate visited Blachford Lake Lodge, which released the following statement after their visit:

Blachford Lake Lodge is proud to have hosted Their Royal Highnesses, Prince William and Catherine, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as part of their Royal Tour of Canada.

On the 5th of July, 2011, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge boarded a Twin Otter float plane in Yellowknife for a twenty-minute excursion over the boreal wilderness of the Canadian Shield, and then landed on Blachford Lake, a remote 14-mile long lake near the East Arm of Great Slave Lake.

During their time at Blachford Lake, William and Kate met met with students and elders from Dechinta Bush University Centre for Research and Learning, a land-based educational initiative located at the lodge.  The royal couple took part in several activities during their visit.  Here they’re watching locals talk through the process of tanning a moose hide.

You may have noticed Kate wore a leather belt with white shell discs on it?  It’s by designer Linda Camm and likely that Kate bought it when holidaying in Kenya.  I found out the information from this blog post, but Linda Camm confirms it on her website.

When canoeing, it appears that Kate changed into a green-brown top.  It’s speculated that Kate wore a top by Zara, but nothing has been confirmed – the photos are just too blurry to discern anything concrete.

Kate’s scarf is by Aquascutum, specifically, the Club Check style.  The brand have since verified the ID too.
