The Royal couple has landed! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched down in Ottowa, Canada this afternoon, and were greeted by dignitaries and mass of press. Middleton wore a dress by Canadian designer Erdem Moralioglu to greet her future subjects.

The couple will be in North America for nine days. They will travel to seven cities - including Calgary, Montreal and Quebec.

A record 1,400 journalists, broadcasters and photographers from across the globe will be covering the much-anticipated visit.
