Little video of Edward and Sophie dancing with the kids at a community feast. I chuckled a lot at how uncoordinated Edward is.

His Royal Highness Prince Edward Earl of Wessex told a ballroom full of young people on Saturday they earned the right to walk a little taller after successfully completing a journey that millions attempt but relatively few complete. He shook hands with 87 young high achievers as he handed out the Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award during a ceremony at Government House.

Royal speech to be webcast

Quote:
When she goes there this week, the Countess of Wessex will be the first member of the royal family in over 80 years to visit the northern Canadian reserve of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug First Nation.

“We are just trying to grasp it now. The last time anyone came here from the Crown was in 1929 when we signed our treaty, said Chief Donny Morris of KI. “To have someone from the Royal Family, representing that, reliving that, I think that’s what we’re excited about — somebody actually coming here 85 years after we signed the treaty with the Crown.”

MOOSE JAW, Sask. - Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, has launched a three-day visit to Saskatchewan.
He landed at 15 Wing Moose Jaw on Wednesday afternoon and was greeted by Lt.-Gov. Vaughn Solomon Schofield.
Following a short welcoming ceremony, the prince inspected the parade consisting of members of the Saskatchewan Dragoons and the Royal Canadian Air Force.
Moose Jaw Mayor Deb Higgins said the prince is "always very personable and willing to meet the public."

I wonder which Royals they prefer.....technically the Wessex's are the Canadian Royal family but the Danish royals are crown princely. Their visits are for very different things though.

Prefer? Who? Weird? It's not like they are fighting for the attention of the same crowd in the same venues...

The Danish CP couple are heading a Business promotion tour arranged by The Confederation of Danish Industries and the Foreign Office of Denmark, with 80 companies accompanying them. I don't know what the Wessex's are there for, but I think there's plenty of room for both couples to do their thing in Canada.

I haven't seen much press coverage of the Wessexes visit; have I missed it, or hasn't there been much?

The Earl and Countess aren't on an official tour of Canada so not as much press as normal.

The coverage is decent in Canada, I have been posting links in my posts. They have given detailed info on itinarery, some events are not media allowed like today. But tomorrow there will be live feed of Sophie's speech. Plus organizations that Sophie visited gave also great coverage. I have updated my posts, and gave links to more galleries.
The only thing that wasn't covered are the evening dinners. But those are behind closed doors with no media.
Yes, I know media coverage is not like for Kate, but there never was such coverage for them, and never will be. Plus their visit is working one, not official.
HRH Countess of Wessex

Another video of them leaving Alert Bay, someone played for them God save The Queen. They waited till the end, waved to the people and departed.

Also, worth noting, more and more people notice how hard they work, and how genune they are with people. and that they are great for BRF.

Well, I have never read anything about how the First Nations feel about the Monarchy and (bad on me) I have never thought about it.

So Sophie speaking on reconciliation is a revelation to me. Keep it coming - the more we learn, the more we ARE, the more we CAN BE.
