Crowds greet Prince William, Kate in Vancouver
NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION).
Story: Britain’s Prince William and his wife, Kate, arrived by float plane at a community in British Columbia on Sunday (September 25), as part of their official visit to Canada. The couple greeted thousands of well-wishers who were waiting when they arrived.
The royals did not bring their children, 3-year-old Prince George and 1-year-old Princess Charlotte, on the plane. The family arrived in Canada on Saturday for the week-long trip.
William and Kate were scheduled to attend a ceremony at British Columbia’s legislature with full military honors, including a 21-gun salute, according to the Prime Minister’s Office.
William is the second in line to succeed his grandmother Queen Elizabeth, who is also Canada’s head of state. He and Kate last officially came to Canada in 2011.
The couple is expected to travel the country to attend more than 30 engagements, including meetings with aboriginal communities. Their visit is scheduled to end on Oct. 1.
