William and Kate Visit Remote Canadian Island Community of Bella Balla
Caption: The couple endured a rocky flight to arrive at the remote community, where they were welcomed as hereditary chiefs
Battling the elements, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived on the remote Canadian island community of Bella Bella yesterday to be heralded as chiefs.
Amid driving wind and rain, Kate dressed down for the occasion in Zara jeans, earrings by Canadian designer Pippa Small and what looked to be her trusted pair of Penelope Chilvers boots.
The duchess, 34, covered up for the weather with a safari jacket from Holland and Holland.
The royal couple were greeted warmly in Bella Bella by the indigenous Heiltsuk people as ‘hemas’, a hereditary chief, and ‘umaks’, a woman of high rank or standing.
William and Kate were shown one of the most precious items owned by the community, a royal staff with a silver crown head given to the present chief’s great-grandfather by Queen Victoria.
