The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, chose a standout look for the start of her second day in Canada, stepping out in a striking pleated dress to board a seaplane from Victoria Harbour with Prince William on Sunday.
The £4,000 dress, by Alexander McQueen, featured intricate embroidered detail, a high-neck collar and a knee-length skirt, highlighting the Duchess' slender frame. It might have been created by a British designer, but thoughtful Kate had selected a garment in the colours of her host country - red and white.

The elegant royal further accentuated her outfit with a bright red suede heels and a matching clutch bag. She wore her perfectly-styled tresses around her shoulders in glossy waves, and highlighted her striking facial features with subtle tones of makeup, including a touch of blusher to her cheeks, and a soft pink lip.
The royals, who arrived in Canada for their official tour on Saturday, are travelling to Vancouver where they will be greeted by dignitaries from the city.
