Britain’s Prince William and his wife, Catherine (Kate), Duchess of Cambridge, took to the British Columbian waters Saturday (October 1) on the final day of their Canada royal tour.

Their children, George and Charlotte, were absent but the royal couple was all smiles as Kate took the helm of a tall ship to sail around Victoria’s picturesque harbor with crew members.
