From there, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge then flew to Whitehorse, Yukon. They received a warm welcome upon arrival in Yukon at Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport.
The city’s lower temperature called for a bit of warmer clothes.
They were greeted by members of the Canadian Rangers, the military branch that provides a presence in the north of the country. The Duke and Duchess also met some of the young people serving in the Junior Canadian Rangers.
Prince William inspected a guard composed of members of the Canadian Rangers and Junior Rangers. The Duke of Cambridge and his brother, Prince Harry, were made honorary members of this reserve unit in 2009.

William and Catherine received a beautiful gift from a young boy named Evan. Evan’s family has lived in Yukon for generations. He presented the couple with a book written by his great-granduncle. After the performance, they met with the artists and performers.
