Day six of the whirlwind royal tour of Canada, and Duchess Kate decided to debut her first dress by a non-British designer.

The royal met crowds in Yellowknife wearing a structured soft-beige dress by Danish designer, By Malene Birger, teamed with her favourite LK Bennett pumps and a neutral clutch.

But while her nude heels might have been the perfect finishing touch to yet another stylish ensemble, they didn't prove particularly practical when the couple were invited to join in a local game of 'Shimmy' - a type of Canadian street hockey.
