The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were apparently snubbed for a second time in two days by a prominent First Nations leader in Canada.
Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, Okanagan Nation Alliance Chairman and Spokesperson, had been due to meet the royals at the University of British Columbia Okanagan.
But he pulled out at the 11th hour, failing to appear on stage with them at the university's 10th anniversary celebrations.
He was replaced in the welcome line up by Chief Jonathan Kruger from the local Penticton Indian Band.
A spokesman for the university could not comment on why Grand Chief Phillip had pulled out.
It came just a day after he refused to attend an historic reconciliation ceremony with William and Kate at Government House in Victoria.
Grand Chief Phillip, leader of 115 First Nation tribes in British Columbia known as the Union of BC Chiefs, did not turn up in protest at the government's treatment of his people.
He said in a statement: 'With the deepening poverty of our communities, remembering the missing and murdered indigenous women and girls and the ongoing negligence of indigenous child welfare policies across this country, in good conscience, I cannot participate in the Black Rod Ceremony.'
Kensington Palace declined to comment on the controversy.
