Prince William and Princess Kate Meet Syrian Refugees in Vancouver
The royal couple are set to end their Canadian tour on Oct. 1
After visiting Sheway, a pregnancy outreach program located in downtown Vancouver, the couple visited the Immigrant Services Society, a charity that provides targeted programs for refugees as well as immigrants. While at the Immigrant Services Society, the couple met with Syrian refugees who were relocated through the UNHCR, the United Nations’ refugee agency.
The couple were met outside by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie, who had greeted the royal family when they arrived on Saturday. (Unfortunately Prince George is not a fan of Trudeau!)
Once inside, the royals met with refugees and families to hear about how the center had helped them adjust to their new life in Canada.
The royal couple departed from Victoria, Canada, on Sunday morning by taking a seaplane from the Victoria Harbor to their next destination – Vancouver, which is about 70 miles north of the capital of British Colombia. In Vancouver, they were scheduled will meet with dignitaries from the city before moving on to a series of engagements, including this meeting.
Kate wore a white and red Alexander McQueen dress for the afternoon while William kept things simple with a black suit.
