Prince William and Duchess Catherine are continuing their Canadian tour by taking part in several different activities.

On Friday, the couple planted an Eastern Hemlock tree in the shadow of the Pin Oak planted by William’s parents. Prince Charles and Princess Diana planted the tree on June 21, 1983, which happened to be William’s first birthday. The species of the tree is native to Canada and is supposed to serve as a symbol of their love for 800 years. These two trees are also surrounded by red oaks planted by other members of the Royal Family.

Following the tree planting, the couple took a cooking class Saturday at the Institut de tourisme et d’hotellerie du Quebec. They cooked a lobster soufflé, which is apparently very complicated to make. They both took the lessons seriously and focused on learning to make different dishes, but were able to relax and enjoy the meal after it was prepared.

Well, I guess if that’s their version of fun then good for them. Who knows what kind of crazy stuff they’ll get into next in Canada.
