(CBS) The Duchess of Cambridge took inspiration from Canada's flag for the second day of her and Prince William's royal tour.

Kate dressed in red and white for Friday's events, which included a citizenship ceremony for new Canadians and Canada Day celebrations on Ottawa's Parliament Hill.

The duchess wore a cream, three-quarter sleeved dress with ruffle detail by London designer Reiss (the same dress she wore in her official engagement portrait). She pinned the Queen's maple leaf brooch on the dress and completed the look with a red hat topped with a maple leaf.

Queen Elizabeth II loaned the brooch to Kate for the tour. It was first worn in 1951 by the monarch - the then-Princess Elizabeth - on her first visit to Canada.
