Royal couple cruise on St Lawrence River

Prince William and Catherine Middleton have taken a slow cruise alone the St Lawrence River during the latest stage of their tour of Canada.

However, the trip was far from the picturesque tour some might expect, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge taking their seats on board HMCS Montreal, a City Class Frigate of the Canadian Navy.

Although the couple enjoyed the most comfortable quarters on the ship, they were joined by a crew of 225 for their 11-hour journey to Quebec.

Prince William and his bride attended Sunday service on board while the vessel is docked at the Champlain Harbour Station in Quebec.

The royal couple later joined a reception for Canadian servicemen, war veterans and their families.

They chatted with Canadian newlyweds who share their wedding day of April 29th, and couples celebrating their
40th, 50th, 60th and 70th wedding anniversaries.
