Prince William, Kate continue Canada visit

Prince William, Kate continue Canada visit
 
Britain's Prince William and his wife Kate on Saturday arrived in the French-speaking city of Montreal as protesters tried to ruin the day by chanting a raft of slogans in protest of the couple's visit.

In Montreal, the royal couple visited a hospital neonatal unit and then went to a cooking school. A larger group of protesters were waiting when the couple's motorcade pulled up to the cooking school, where the newlywed couple donned chefs' uniforms as they prepared food during a cooking lesson.

Protesters carried signs that read curses including "Parasites Go Home."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were however greeted with enormous warmth as the royal newlyweds began their first official overseas visit in Ottawa Thursday.

The couple, who arrived in Ottawa aboard a Canadian Air Force plane, have started a tour deemed in part to improve bonds between the British monarchy and Canadians, whose head of state is Queen Elizabeth II.
