The Duchess of Cambridge continued her North American tour in Canada this weekend, which means there were lots of wardrobe changes!

Following her flawless appearance at citizenship ceremony on Friday afternoon, the Canada Day celebrations continued on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. For her second outfit of the day, Kate wore a purple Issa v-neck dress and navy Prada pumps.

On Saturday, Prince William and his wifey planted a tree at Rideau Hall next to the tree Prince Charles and Princess Diana planted back in 1983. As if the event wasn't special enough, Kate wore a gray dress by one of Di's favorite designers Catherine Walker and Tabitha Simmons heels.

For the fourth day of their visit, the Duke & Duchess flew to Quebec for the Freedom of the City Ceremony. Once again, Kate wore another blue lace dress by Erdem, this time from the pre-fall collection and her favorite pair of LK Bennett nude heels.

After the ceremony, Miz Middleton made a mid-day change before going off to another event at Fort Levi. The Duchess met with the citizens of Quebec in a casual, but chic Joseph crepe dress and and Rupert Sanderson pumps.

By Monday, Catherine was ready to go back to basics by wearing one of her favorite designers: Alexander McQueen. For her visit to Prince Edward Island, the Duchess wore a nautical-esque knit dress and navy heels.

Which look did U like best??? We're loving her blue Erdem dress!

More Of Princess Diana's Dresses Up For Auction

princess-diana-dress-auction-waddington-auction-house.jpg

An extraordinary collection of Princess Diana's dresses can be yours, that is if you can afford it.

The 14 dresses belong to Maureen Rorech Dunkel, who purchased them at an auction just weeks before Di's fatal car crash in Paris. Now 14 years, a default loan payment and a bankruptcy filing later Dunkel's decided to sell them.

Some of the more famous pieces up for grabs include a blue Victor Edelstein velvet dress worn while dancing with John Travolta at the White House and two Catherine Walker dresses Diana posed in for a Vanity Fair spread.

The Waddington Auction House expects each dress to fetch between $175,000 to $550,000, but we wouldn't be surprised if certain ones go for more.

Check out the complete collection in the gallery (below)!

Maybe she can chat with Cheryl Cole about the right way to wear high-waist pants.

Designer Catherine Walker Passes Away

Sad.

British designer Catherine Walker passed away at the age of 65 on Thursday after a lengthy battle with cancer.

The couturier was best known for her dresses worn by Princess Diana in both life and in death. The British royal was buried in a black dress created by Walker.

Our thoughts go out to her two daughters and husband during this difficult time.
