William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, continued their tour of Canada on Tuesday, visiting fans in the Northwest Territories. After Prince William showed off his linguistic skills, speaking to the crowd in two aboriginal tongues, and proved he’s not that great at hockey, the couple traveled to Blachford Lake.

It’s there that I got the answer to one of (my) life’s greatest questions: Does the duchess wear pants? She does, indeed.

Kate wore jeans, the skinny kind no less, with taupe flats. Although the outfit was suitable for a day of canoeing, I’m beginning to lose hope that the former Kate Middleton will wear anything as wonderful as the maple-leaf hat she donned on Canada Day.

The royal couple traveled to Slave Lake in Alberta on Wednesday to meet with victims of a devastating fire.
