Prince George the 3-year-old future king, but does he have a future in hockey?

Little George and sister Princess Charlotte each retrieved personalized Vancouver Canucks jerseys on Saturday when Prince William and Princess Kate visited a domestic violence shelter and charity on their last day of their Canada tour.

British Columbia Premiere Christy Clark handed over the presents as Kate and William wrapped up their week-long tour of Canada on Saturday.

The royal parents began the day at The Cridge Centre for the Family in Victoria, British Columbia, which provides support for women who have experienced domestic violence and housing for families experiencing economic or relationship crises.

Kate went for an off-the-rack look in a white jacket and black skinny pants from department store Zara. Her plaid shoes were from J. Crew.

Next they were set to visit a café, where they met families aided by the Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre. The couple, who run the Heads Together initiative with Prince Harry, were eager to see how Kelty uses digital and community-based tools to take their services and information to families.

Then, for giddy sailor Kate, the schedule called for a quick trip around Victoria Harbour on a magnificent ship. Joining the Sail and Life Training Society, which uses sailing to give young people life skills, the pair also underscored the work of a charity back in the U.K. that Kate champions, the 1851 Trust. (Kate famously out-raced her husband on the seas in New Zealand.)

On board they chatted with a group of young people who are part of, a Canadian national network of youth working to end the stigma around mental health, just as the royal couple are hoping to do back in the U.K.

After today’s outings, the couple will head home to London with children Prince George and Princess Charlotte aboard a Canadian Air Force plane.
