But aides worked quickly to adapt their programme, cancelling a tour of the attractive region by float plane and arranging for a boat to take them from the small airstrip to the jetty where they were welcomed by the First Nations people.

The reception at the 13-bedroom property where William, Kate and their children are staying was attended by leaders in British Columbia's legislature, government and judiciary.

"While the canopy designation recognizes the work we did around land-use planning, the interconnection between our lands and our waters can not be understated", she said.

But they received a rapturous welcome from the small Heiltsuk First Nation community as they were treated to a welcoming dance.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were left deluged by downpours when they visited a Canadian rainforest to inaugurate the natural wonder into a new initiative.

They were also shown one of the most precious items owned by the First Nations community, a royal staff with a silver crown head given to the present chief's great-grandfather by Queen Victoria.

The Duchess first wore red (and white) on their second day in Vancouver, in a beautifully printed Alexander McQueen dress and matching with a red Miu Miu clutch.

The royal family is set to meet the prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophia Trudeau and other dignitaries.
