Royal couple continue their honeymoon tour of Canada

Having spent the day at a lake on Prince Edward Island yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, are now on their sixth day of their tour of Canada.

The couple is set to visit Yellowknife today in the Northwest Territories, where they are expected to take part in a street hockey game and attend a session of Youth Parliament.

Carolyn Harris, royal historian from Queens University, joins Ali Velshi and Christine Romans this morning to talk about the highlights of the couple's trip and to discuss the sensation that their visit has become in Canada.

John Roberts: Honored by Canada

There are moments in life where you look back and take stock of everything that has happened over the years – a sort of reflection of where you started, where you ended up and where you might go in the future. I had one of those moments on Thursday when I was inducted into the Canadian Broadcast Industry Hall of Fame.

It was in Canada, because that's where I started my career – as a newsman in the proverbial 5000 watt radio station in the middle-of-nowhere. I did the requisite tour of small town radio before landing at the nation's powerhouse station. From there, I embarked on a hectic, tortuous and sometimes calamitous road through music journalism, the launch of a 24 hour cable music channel, local news in Canada and the US, a network morning show back in my birthplace, CBS News, a 6 year stint as White House Correspondent, then to CNN and American Morning. Somewhere in between, 34 years went by, which is just absolutely stunning to me.
