Duchess Of Cambridge Steps Out In Jenny Packham For Start Of Royal Tour In B.C.

Welcome to Canada!

Few people — if ever — have travel wear as camera-ready as Kate Middleton.

The Duchess of Cambridge and her family arrived in Canada Saturday for a royal tour of British Columbia and Yukon. And like always, she did so with elegance and flare.

Kate stepped off the plane wearing a long-sleeved, collared lapis dress with a pencil skirt by Jenny Packham. She paired the frock with taupe Gianvito Rossi pumps.

She accessorized with a matching blue cocktail hat by Lock & Co, adorned with maple leaves, small stud earrings and the same jewelled maple leaf brooch worn by both herself on her last trip to Canada in 2011, and by Queen Elizabeth II.

Middleton pulled her hair in a polished chignon and kept her makeup natural and subdued.

The entire family was colour co-ordinated, with Prince William sporting a navy suit, Prince George in a light blue sweater and black shorts and Princess Charlotte wore a pale blue dress and a bow in her hair.

The royal family received a warm welcome from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau who wore a remarkably similar dress in violet.

B.C. Premier Christy Clark, Governor General David Johnston and his wife Sharon Johnston also greeted the family on the tarmac.

While royal family arrived at Victoria's airport, large crowds gathered at the British Columbia legislature for a welcome ceremony.

Brace yourselves for a week full of major closet-envy.
