No scouring for paparazzi shots of Kate Middleton grocery shopping this week! Kate and Prince William have headed off for a much-publicized, 10-day trip to Canada today and here are the first photos. According to our sister site Osoyou:

"The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge were spotted getting onto a Royal Canadian Air Force plane at Heathrow only hours ago, bound for Ottawa to start their 11-day trip, which will take them through Canada and on to California." Kate favored another navy military-inspired coat with gold buttons for takeoff and, as TheBagLady reported, a Mulberry "Polly" push-lock bag.
