Day 6 of the Royal Tour saw Prince William and Kate visit Yellowknife in Canada’s Northwest Territories. The Duke and Duchess received an official welcome from the aboriginal peoples of the area, and Canada’s national pastime, Hockey, also found its way into the itinerary. Their royal highnesses were given with personalised official team Canada jerseys, before the Duke tried out a wrist shot, and finally the Duchess dropped the ball for a face off to restart the game. And to end off the day, the couple embarked on an iconic and vital form of transportation in Canada’s North, taking off by floatplane for the 30 minute flight to Blachford Lake Lodge, a quaint fishing lodge in the pristine wilderness of the Northwest Territories.

Participating in an off-trail hike, also known as a bushwhack, the Prince was part of a group of trekkers organized by the local extreme sports company Eco-Xtreme Adventures. The group failed to emerge from the dense wilderness of the rugged coastal range mountains at the pre-arranged time and place. So far there has been no communication from the group even though they have been reported to be carrying satellite telephones. The leader of the bushwhacking group is an experienced backcountry guide with many years of experience says the owner / operator of Eco-Xtreme Adventures. As a precaution a full complement of search and rescue assets have been dispatched to search for the missing hikers. Prince Harry is no stranger to the danger of extreme sports and is said to be well equipped to handle the adverse conditions that he may be encountering. There has been no official word from Windsor Palace as of yet but it is believed that a statement is forthcoming. Robert Mills, BBC News, British Columbia, Canada.

Will and Kate’s first official trip as a married couple will take them to Prince Edward Island, Ottawa, Quebec, Alberta, the Northwest Territories and the Arctic, over nine days. But you won’t see them here in the most British of Canadian cities. The English Sweet Shop, decked out in royal memorabilia, would love to sweet talk the royal newlyweds into visiting Victoria. These are Murray Mints. I can see them enjoying Murray Mints on their walks,” says owner Wendy Beach. But royal planners have decided those walks won’t be down our streets. Even Government House is a little disappointed. A representative says they would have loved the opportunity to host the royal newlyweds, but will graciously wait until the next time. In 2009 Government house hosted Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, and for her Golden Jubilee in 2002 the Queen toured Canada extensively, also stopping in Victoria. But the monarchist league says we shouldn’t feel snubbed. The Royal visit has been in the works for some time. The Prime Minister was one of the first to put his invitation in. Stephen Harper says the fact they accepted shows how strong the bond is between the two countries.
