Blue seems to be the color du jour for Kate Middleton and Prince William!
All four members of the royal family, including the couple's 3-year-old son Prince George and 16-month-old daughter Princess Charlotte, donned the hue for their arrival in Victoria, British Columbia, on Saturday, and Kate and William sported blue again during day three of their royal tour in Canada.
The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge, both 34, rocked matching navy blue sweaters and collared shirts while visiting the Heiltsuk First Nation in Bella Bella, an Indian Reserve community in British Columbia, on Monday. Kate smartly carried an umbrella and wore a short camel trench coat ahead of entering the welcoming ceremony, as the afternoon was full of some pretty wet weather.
Kate paired her sweater with black pants and a favorite pair of Penelope Chilvers long tassel leather riding boots, while William's slightly darker jumper was paired with camel corduroys.
The boots are the same pair Kate wore during her five-hour hike with William to the Tiger's Nest monastery in Bhutan during their royal trip to India and Bhutan in April.
The husband-and-wife duo received a very warm welcome from residents, with the local kids even putting on a traditional dance for their visitors, witnessed by all in the packed hall.

As the royal Twitter account pointed out, the children really were the stars of the show, with Kate taking time out to speak to some of the young women there.
The pair also met with elders in the community, and they were gifted with traditional scarves, which they put on during the ceremony, and tiny capes for George and Charlotte.
Later in the afternoon, William gave a speech endorsing Great Bear Rainforest, part of an international conservation effort and Canada's contribution to the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy, which aims to preserve forests for future generations.
"The establishment of the Canopy is a loud and unambiguous statement ... that nature is fundamental to the health of our societies," the Duke said during his speech. "Her Majesty is immensely grateful to you, and the people of Canada, for the leadership you have shown in making this contribution."
Kate and William then took a stroll down a boardwalk in the forest before unveiling a plaque during their visit.
