The newly-wed Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Slave Lake in Alberta on Tuesday, a town ruined by a forest fire.

The royal couple made a quick and slightly unplanned stop in the fire-ravaged town, where hundreds of homes were razed to the ground as all 7,000 residents were evacuated.

William and Kate were greeted by the Premier of Alberta and Slave Lake's mayor. The couple looked at burnt vehicles, houses and properties that lay on the street, with a slight pause after each stop to talk to different residents. The Duke and Duchess also discussed the current situation of Slave Lake with the town leaders as a part of their royal responsibilities.

The couple arrives in cowboy country Thursday for the final stop on their tour of Canada. The couple is expected to end their Canadian tour on July 8 and will board a plane that will take them to Hollywood, California.
