The first day of the tour marked the royal family arriving at the Canada Victoria International airport in British Columbia.

There, they were greeted by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Grégoire, and 25,000 well-wishers.

During the visit, three-year-old George, left Trudeau awkwardly hanging after Trudeau went in for a high-five, and was ignored.
