No, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge weren’t extras in a Rascal Flatts music video, the royal couple went to a Canadian rodeo! Because Canada has those…apparently.

Kate and William were rodeo royalty at the Calgary Stampede in Calgary, Canada. Prince William wore Stetsons, green flannel and a white hat looking like one of those guys modeling Wrangler in the back of a Wal-Mart catalog.

Kate Middleton also rocked Stetsons and the iconic white cowboy hat with a blouse by Alice Temperley (she couldn’t completely abandon her Londoner roots).

The couple met with a guest named Margaret Southern who met Queen Elizabeth during her 1990 visit to Canada. Southern praised the duo’s cowboy fashion, “I was proud to see them wearing their hats. William said ‘When in Rome, do as the Romans do,’ and I though that was very sweet. They didn’t have to wear the hats, but they did.”

A Canadian park was dedicated and named in their honor and Prince William addressed the crowd, “A week ago in Ottawa I spoke of how much Catherine and I looked forward to getting to know Canada and Canadians. I can only say that the experience of this past seven days has exceeded all our expectations. We have been hugely struck by the diversity of this beautiful country.”

He also added, “What about these fantastic white hats?”

And then they are going to tour LA and be like, “There are a lot of yogurt shops here?” and “What about these fantastic fake tans?”
