Gorgeous in green! Kate delights in £2,000 Dolce & Gabbana dress as she and William arrive in Canadian town that Charles and Diana visited 30 years ago

  • William and Kate left Victoria for Kelowna, in western Canada, following in Charles and Diana's footsteps
  • They flew to the city in the Okanagan Valley on the fourth day of their royal tour of the country
  • Later the couple will enjoy local delicacies at a special tasting event at one of the world's best wineries
  • The duke and duchess will later fly to Whitehorse in the Yukon, where they will spend the night
  • Prince George, three, and Princess Charlotte, one, remain at the family's base in Victoria with their nanny 
The couple were greeted by crowds of well-wishers as they stepped off the plane in the city, in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. 
William and Kate are the first royals to visit Kelowna since Prince Charles and Princess Diana 30 years ago. Prince George, three, and 16-month-old Princess Charlotte are with their nanny in Victoria, the family's base for the tour.
The couple will visit a university campus before tasting local delicacies at a special food fair. Later they will fly to  Whitehorse in the Yukon, where they will stay the night.

As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrive in Kelowna on day four of the Royal tour of Canada, we were once again impressed by Kate's impeccable dress sense.
The couple are there to unveil a plaque to mark the 10 year anniversary of the University of British Columbia Okanagan and they'd both chosen smart ensembles.
Kate opted for a green dress, a hue we rarely see her wear, the last time being in a Catherine Walker coat dress at the Chelsea Flower Show back in May. We're not sure why though when she wears the colour so well!
This Dolce & Gabbana pick is a custom version of the pocket watch dress that made up part of the fairytale-inspired autumn/winter 2016 collection. We would've been a little surprised if Kate had donned it with the applique, as the quirky piece doesn't seem very her. This simpler adaption with gold buttons however is perfect for a princess who is partial to a classic piece.

Their first stop was the Okanagan campus of the University of British Columbia. UBC is one of the world's top research universities and recently celebrated its centenary.
The campus in Kelowna, home to 8,000 students, opened a decade ago and the royal couple helped students and staff celebrate its 10th anniversary.
They were touring part of the campus before watching an exhibition match involving the campus' nationally ranked women's volleyball team.
They were also due to meet young people learning about potential careers in food and agriculture.
Among the chefs creating edible masterpieces will be Vancouver-based David Hawksworth, who is widely regarded as one of Canada’s premiere chefs.

He is making a mouth-watering dish of yuzu compressed watermelon with fresh Dungeness crab paired with black lime sorbet, crispy rice and mint.
The chef told Global News he feels confident in his choices since the royal couple are well-travelled - and it’s not the first time he’s cooked for royalty.
Mr Hawksworth told the television network that he had cooked for William's grandmother, the Queen, several times because she had a stable not too far from where he worked in the UK.
'So I’m a little bit accustomed for what they like,' he said.
The visit to the winery will come after an engagement at the Okanagan University in Kelowna where William and Kate will meet students and watch an exhibition volleyball match.
Later they will fly to Whitehorse in the Yukon, where they will stay the night - away from their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte , who will remain in their base of Victoria - for two days of engagements.
The couple are almost mid-way through their eight-day tour of Canada on behalf of the Queen.
