Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William ended their first full day in Ottawa, Canada on Friday night with an evening of National Canada Day celebrations.

They were treated to music on Parliament Hill. They stayed for just over 30 minutes with eight members of their entourage before heading to the foreign office to watch fireworks.

Catherine wore a dress by her favourite brand, Issa.

The long-sleeved purple Issa jersey dress was accented with the diamond maple leaf brooch she had worn earlier in the day.

For those of you who’ve been waiting for Kate to do something different with her hair you got your wish, as she opted for a swept back chignon for a refreshing change.

She added navy Prada pumps and an Anya Hindmarch clutch to complete her look.

This dress is a beautiful colour on her, yet I find myself bored by the whole look.
