“Is that your mother?” William asked, laughing.

“That is my mother,” Shane, 26, said slightly awkwardly. “I was pretty nervous but also pretty proud. She is their biggest fan,” he said after talking to the couple about a mountain bike trail scheme his family helped to set up at Montana Mountain in Carcross, Yukon, in northern Canada.

William and Kate walked across to a group of parents and grandparents  involved in the project, including Mrs Wally. They hugged her and another  member of the Carcross First Nation band, Susan James.

Mrs Wally told the royal couple: “You just made the top of my bucket list. I’ve been following you since the days of Diana.”

She told Kate she had made some slippers for Prince George and Princess Charlotte but had been told she could not give then to the couple so planned to post them instead. “I’ll look out for them,” Kate said.
