The royals head to Quebec

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Prince William and Kate travel to the French-speaking province of Quebec today where protests by a small group of separatists are expected as the royal newlyweds continue a nine-day journey through Canada on their first official overseas trip.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge started the third day of their Canadian tour with a tree-planting ceremony at Government House that has become a royal family tradition and a visit to the Canadian War Museum.
Today’s small, low-key gatherings in Ottawa contrasted with yesterday’s celebration of Canada Day when Prince William and Kate stole the show as they were feted by Canadian leaders and cheered by tens of thousands who lined the streets to get a glimpse of the couple.
Prince William, wearing a dark blue suit, and Kate, dressed in a grey, fitted knee-length Kensington dress by British designer Catherine Walker, each wielded a shovel as they helped plant a Canadian hemlock — a tree known for its longevity meant to symbolize their marriage.
