The Cambridge family are soaking up attention in Canada at the moment, but this is not their first tour of Canada. Back in 2011, the newly married Cambridge couple travelled to Canada for their first tour together. One of their key engagements was a concert on Canada Day.
Canada Day marks the anniversary of the Constitution Act 1867 when the provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were united to form modern day Canada. The couple watched some performances and viewed an elaborate fireworks display to mark Canada’s 144th birthday.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore a dress from one of her old favourites, Issa. She famously chose an Issa dress for her iconic engagement announcement. However, she stopped wearing Issa shortly after the tour when they were taken over by Camilla Al-Fayed, sister of Princess Diana’s ex Dodi who died in the car crash that took the princess’s life and daughter of Mohammed Al-Fayed who claimed the crash was orchestrated by Prince Philip.
Kate’s Issa dress is in the brand’s signature wrap front style and comes in a vibrant purple colour. The copycat I’ve chosen has shorter sleeves than Kate’s piece but it comes in a bright purple shade and has the chic wrap waist. The dress is from Mai Tai, and sells for £26.99 ($35).
