William, Kate continue tour in Quebec City

Prince William and Kate are continuing to captivate Canadians on their whirlwind tour of North America.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as they are officially known, visited Quebec City on Sunday, where they took part in a prayer service and met with residents of a homeless youth center.

The royal newlyweds encountered small but vocal protests for the second straight day during their visit to predominantly French-speaking Quebec. They began their Canadian trip in the largely English-speaking capital, Ottawa, where they were cheered by tens of thousands of people on Friday's Canada Day holiday.

The couple also honored a Canadian military unit at City Hall.

The prince spoke to the crowd in French and got a few laughs after apologizing for his accent. The couple also surprised the crowd by chatting and shaking hands with enthusiastic supporters.

Sunday marks day four of their nine-day trip in Canada.

They arrive in Los Angeles on Friday.
