The Great White North just got white-hot!

With Prince William at her side, Duchess Kate arrived at the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Gatineu, Quebec (just across the river from the Parliament Building in Ottawa, Ontario) on Friday morning.

The recently anointed royal, 29, made a regal, sexy entrance in a cream, wrap-style dress by Reiss, featuring ruffle details and a collarbone-bearing neckline; Kate accessorized the snowy look with the Queen's Maple Leaf brooch,  demure red pumps and a maple-leaf fascinator by Sylvia Fletcher at Lock and Co. See more pics of Kate's Canada Day attire.

She and William, also 29, met with Canada's Governor General David Johnston at the natural history museum to witness a Canada Day Citizenship Ceremony; 25 new citizens are expected to take the oath of citizenship inside the museum while the royals watch. (One key part of the oath includes swearing allegiance to Queen Elizabeth, Prince William's grandmother, who guarantees to protect their rights and freedoms.) Wiliam and Kate (a.k.a. Their Royal Highnesses!) will congratulate the new citizens by presenting each of them with Canadian flags.

Next up, the duo are headed for Parliament Hill for more Canada Day celebrations, where William is set to speak briefly to the crowd.
