The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge began the next leg of their tour with a stop at the University of British Columbia in Okanagan.
While William kept it casual in his trusted beige pant and navy jacket combo, it was his wife that truly dazzled the crowds.
The mum-of-two was bewitching in a deep green Dolce & Gabbana midi-dress, worth £2150 (about $AUD3600).
Fans and well-wishers went wild for the pair as they stepped off their plane in the leafy British Columbia city, greeting the masses.

While mum and dad are working, three-year-old Prince George and 16-month-old Princess Charlotte are with their nanny Maria Bello in their base in Victoria.
Their parents began their day in Kelowna to help the local university celebrate the 10th anniversary of their campus, by unveiling a plaque.
And the University of British Columbia put on quite the show for the couple.
Meeting with the school's athlete, Wills and Kate got to sit court-side and catch a game of women’s volleyball.
"What a game! Thank you @UBC for an amazing welcome! And for TRH's special @UBC jerseys," Kensington Palace tweeted following their visit.
The couple looked very chuffed with their cute gifts, especially their Team Cambridge jerseys!
Heading back to university will always be a treat for the couple, whose love story began during their tertiary education.

Day four wasn't all books and volleyball. The pair, both 34, will get to indulge in the delicious taste of British Columbia’s culinary scene.
The royal couple will enjoy local cuisine prepared by famed chef and restaurateur Vikram Vij, who revealed he'll be creating a yummy fusion dish, showcasing Indian culture meeting Canada's.
In a statement, he confirmed he'll be cooking wine marinated lamb popsicles and coconut curried vegetables.
“I was a huge fan of Princess Diana, so to be able to serve the next generation of royals our lamb popsicles, and to show the couple how cultures and influences from around the world are being blended with wonderful B.C. ingredients, is something I am very proud to do,” he said.
Wills and Kate will head to the Mission Hill Family Estate, where they’ll check out the scenic vineyards, while learning about the area's agriculture and food sector at the Taste of British Columbia Festival.
Following their afternoon filled with delicious goodies, the pair will fly to Whitehorse in Yukon, where they'll stay the night, sans kids.
The pair will reportedly spend an evening at the three-star Coast High Country Inn in the town of Whitehorse, which costs around $AUD161 a night and has a four-star rating on Trip Advisor.
It's believed William and Kate will set up camp in the newly refurbished Presidential Suite, which features a spa, a microwave and the all important mini-bar.
In Whitehorse, they'll meet with local rangers before being treated to a cultural performance at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre.
