William and Kate Tour Canada, Eh?
If you’re anything like me and have been following the royal couple’s every move, I’m sure you’ve heard the two are taking on North America. According to People.com, William has been there before, but would like to “get to know it better”, while his new wife Kate, is a rookie when it comes to traveling around Canada.
The Country may be new to Kate, but it is a big part of her family history. Kate’s grandfather, Peter Middleton, was stationed near Calgary during World War II, where he served as a trainee bomber pilot.
During their 11-day tour, the couple plans to visit many cities, some including: Ontario, Quebec, Montreal, Charlottetown, and Calgary. The tour will be the couple’s first royal tour.
Though they’re only touring for 11 days, reports say that Kate will require 40 plus different outfit changes – and I thought I was a heavy packer! Ladies, keep this stat in mind next time you’re accused of over packing.
The way I think, 40 outfits equals a whole lot of accessories! Here’s a couple I thought would be perfect for the Duchess to bring along.
Chinese Laundry Glitz Sunglasses

William and Kate picked a good time to go to Canada – the sun will be out, and they don’t have to worry about trudging through eight feet of snow! With the sun shining bright, Kate is going to need a stylish pair of sunglasses. This vintage pair by Chinese Laundry is perfect for a princess.
Betmar Lanna Hat
Shop: Betmar Lanna Hat
I think we’ve all learned from the royal wedding that the British love to wear hats! If this one by Betmar doesn’t scream royalty with its bold floral bow band, then I don’t know what will. More colors are available. Be sure to check them out!
Fossil Lola Satchel

A functional (and stylish) purse is crucial while traveling. This vintage satchel from Lola is just what a vacationer needs! It can be worn two different ways; the carry handle allows for an 11” drop, or if you prefer to wear the purse across your body, the detachable shoulder strap allows for a 17” drop.
Kenneth Cole Reaction Duotone Watch
Shop: Kenneth Cole Reaction Duotone Watch
Kate won’t need to worry about being late if she has on this beautiful watch. The signature bold style by Kenneth Cole is sure to catch every ones eye, not that all eyes won’t already be on the royal couple. I personally love this watch because it goes with everything – perfect for Kate, because I can imagine when you’re packing over 40 outfits, you don’t have much room to spare for accessories! 🙂
