QUEBEC CITY (AP) -- Prince William and Kate have arrived at the dock of Quebec City after spending the night on a Canadian navy frigate as it sailed down the picturesque St. Lawrence Seaway.  

The newlyweds are on the fourth day of a nine-day trip to Canada in what is their first official overseas trip since their April 29 wedding.  

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge encountered small but vocal protests in Montreal, the French-speaking province's biggest city, on Saturday after being cheered by tens of thousands the previous day in Canada's largely English-speaking capital of Ottawa.  

Great Britain's 1759 Conquest of New France and a desire by some French to separate from Canada is still a sensitive issue in Quebec.  

 Another protest is planned by Quebec separatists for Sunday at City Hall where Prince William is due to make remarks.
