With a wave and a smile, the Royal Fab 4 are saying goodbye to North America.

Wrapping up their week-long tour of Canada, Prince William and Princess Kate highlighted mental health initiatives on their last day in Canada before setting sail – and taking flight.

After a brief sailing trip and tour over Vancouver Island on Saturday morning, they then returned home to London with children Prince George and Princess Charlotte on a Canadian Air Force Plane.

The farewell ended a memorable week of travel around British Columbia and Yukon – including the ultimate royal playdate.

As The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's tour of Canada draws to a close, we would like to share a video with special moment's from Thursday's children's party – thank you Canada for an incredible week! The Duke of Cambridge also has a message of thanks to share. His Royal Highness said: "Catherine and I are incredibly grateful to the people of Canada for the warmth and hospitality they have extended to our family over the last week. We have loved our time in British Columbia and Yukon and will never forget the beautiful places we have seen and the many people who have been kind enough to come to welcome us in person. We feel very lucky to have been able to introduce George and Charlotte to Canada. This country will play a big part in the lives of our children and we have created such happy memories for our family during this visit. Canada is a country of optimism, generosity and unrivalled natural beauty. I hope we have helped all Canadians celebrate what makes this country great. We will see you again soon." #RoyalVisitCanada

The family arrived in Canada last Saturday, when George showed off his signature knee socks and memorably decided against a high-five from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Amid the formalities, there were many opportunities for outdoor fun. And for Kate, there were even more opportunities to honor the host nation with her impeccable diplomatic dressing.

Among the week’s highlights: an unusual local delicacy, George twinning with Prince Harry, the cutest royal re-wear yet and the poignancy of a visit to a train carriage once used by his granny Queen Elizabeth.
