The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's eight day royal tour of Canada is coming to a close. But there was one last day of engagements before the royal couple could head back home with their children.

Kate and William dropped in on the Cridge Centre for the Family, one of Victoria's most well-known charitable institutions which provides a range of support services for women who have suffered domestic violence.

Accompanied by the Premier of BC Christy Clark, lieutenant Governor of BC Judith Guichon, Cridge Centre's CEO Shelley Morris and President Val Fuller, the Duke and Duchess spent time chatting with residents and beneficiaries of the Centre and learning about the personal support they had received.

The centre's offers a range of schemes which include women's and family services, senior services, brain injury services and the young parent outreach programme.

Three hundred clients, residents and beneficiaries of the programme had gathered to greet the couple.

Looking effortlessly stylish in a smart Zara jacket and jeans and a pair of £278 tartan heeled loafers by J Crew and with her hair pulled back in a ponytail, Kate walked down one line of people eagerly waiting to meet them.
