Newlyweds the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been charming our neighbors to the north with characteristic grace and style, as their visit to North America continues.

Not only are they spending nine days of the eleven-day tour in Canada (with two days in California before they return home), but since they arrived June 30, they seem to be cramming as many activities as possible into each day there.

Among William and Catherine's flurry of appearances and official duties so far: unveiling a new military mural in Ottawa, testing their culinary skill at a Montreal culinary school, and taking in fireworks at a Canada Day celebration on Friday. Keeping Princess Diana's legacy alive, they also spent time with ailing children in a Quebec cancer ward.

In a touching ceremony on Saturday, People.com reports that the couple planted a hemlock tree on the grounds of Rideau Hall, home of Canada's governor general, in a significant spot: next to an oak tree that William's parents, Charles and Diana, planted on William's first birthday in 1983.

Kate's fashions have been conservative, and her penchant for fascinator hats was seen in a red maple-leaf design she wore to a Canadian citizenship ceremony. See more of the royal couple's first few days in Canada in these photos after the jump.
