William and Kate got into the local spirit for their first evening in Calgary yesterday, paying a visit to a rodeo show in matching white cowboy hats.

The duke and duchess were invited to watch the world famous Calgary Stampede - an annual 10 day festival known as 'the greatest outdoor show on earth,' which sees participants competiting in bull riding contests to win a $2million prize.

And they made sure they arrived in style, dressed in their matching stetsons and sat aboard a traditional Western wagon.

Kate got well and truly into cowgirl mode in a patterned white shirt, flared jeans and classic brown cowboy boots.

Day eight of their royal tour of Canada saw the pair arrive in Alberta, where they were met by the Canadian Forces Flight Crew at Calgary airport.

Kate suprised onlookers by eschewing her standard wardrobe colour palette of navy, nude and cream, in favour of a sweet pastel yellow Jenny Packham dress.
