The couple were greeted with an official welcome of military honours, including an inspection of a group of Canadian Rangers and a traditional Inuit ceremony at the territory’s legislative assembly.
They were also greeted by dignitaries, including Gov. Gen. David Johnston, Nunavut Commissioner Nellie Kusugak and Nunavut Premier Peter Taptuna.
Some highlights from the 2016 Royal visit:
The Prince of Wales, who is marking his 18th visit to Canada, meets later with groups focused on the promotion and preservation of the Inuit language.
Prince Charles will also hear about the Inuit language authority, watch an Inuktitut translation of a children’s book inspired by a book he authored and receive a brief language lesson.
The Duchess of Cornwall, who is marking her fourth visit to Canada, will attend a separate event dedicated to women’s wellness in the North.
