The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton had an eventful Monday as they visited some of the interesting places that British Columbia has to offer.

The royal couple braved a spell of dramatic rain as they arrived for a tour of the Great Bear Rain Forest, which houses the Kermode bear, and marine life such as whales, sea otters and dolphins. Later, they attended a youth reception at the Wawiskas Community Hall, where they received gifts from the locals.

On day four, the royals will be departing from Victoria with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, which means there's a good chance that the public may be able to catch a glimpse of the four of them together.

Tuesday's first stop is Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, where they plan to catch up on a Volleyball match and meet up with the students at the Okanaga campus of the University of British Columbia. They have a Taste of British Columbia festival to attend in the later part of the day, followed by special performance by Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre of Whitehorse, Yukon.
