Wherever they go the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge win over those they meet with their charm. The rapturous reception they've received across the Atlantic is a testament to their universal appeal. But it's not just the couple's approachability, or even Kate's sartorial style, that's made them such a hit. The newlyweds are clearly very much in love and more than anything enjoy spending time in each other's company as was clear at Friday's Canada Day concert.
Despite joining some 100,000 people on Parliament Hill for the music event, the happy couple only had eyes for each other. They exchanged loving glances as they smiled and applauded the pop acts, and frequently leant in to make comments to one another. William and his wife enjoyed the concert for half an hour before leaving to attend a private event.
Kate looked radiant in a vibrant purple Issa jersey dress, which she teamed with black satin court shoes and a matching clutch bag. She was still sporting the glittering marple leaf brooch lent her by the Queen for the tour. Prince William looked dapper in a navy suit and a crisp white shirt. Their stay in Ottawa is just the beginning of the nine-day North America tour in which they will visit several cities across the Commonwealth nation and its neighbour.
