The images of the children in their sunglasses are adorable, I smiled so widely. They are such a cute pair.

It might have been a situation where Dad wanted to see boxing, so Edward said sure lets go to boxing. I think Philip looks wonderful and really seems to be enjoying these games and spending some really good relaxing fun time with his kids. It seems he is just going where he wants to - no obligations, no formal meet and greet - just spectators at some sporting events. ...equestrian (to see his granddaughter of course), sailing, boxing - yep sounds like my grandad.

definitely think Edward and Sophie snuck off for a little holiday in the sun

Thank you for the lovely pictures, Molly . Sophie's smile is always so genuine and engaging. She does indeed look very, very lovely.

This tour will be vastly overshadowed as it will be taking place at the same time as a certain couple are doing their Jubilee tour of Malaysia, Singapore, Tuvalu and The Solomon Islands.

As much as I love the Cambridges, I do wish that in this case, the Wessexes got their due. They do a lot of work for the Crown, and it would great if their Canadian visit would receive decent international coverage (I know here in the States such won't happen, but I think the countries that are part of the Commonwealth should be able to get sufficient coverage of this visit). However, I do understand that the Cambridges sell papers, and are vastly popular, so the higher-ups would want to play that to their advantage.

Even when the Edward has actually visited Australia he doesn't get coverage so getting coverage for a tour anywhere else won't be happening.

William and Kate will get round the clock coverage on the world stage and everyone else will be lucky to get a line somewhere - even The Queen won't get any coverage of day to day duties while they are on this tour so Edward and Sophie will be lucky to get any coverage in the places they visit in Canada - sadly.

has any tour infomation been released on the proposed Canadian tour? it seems odd that they would randomly schedule 2 tours simultaneously. We all know the palace does not do anything randomly.

Which makes me think either
a - there is a deliberate reason why there needs to be a representative of the crown in Canada at that time or

b - by having 2 tours going on at the same time, it will split the press pool and diffuse some of the mania of the Cambridges. Perhaps some of these smaller islands, can't handle all of the press credentials that have been requested to be travelling. When the Cambridges went to Canada last year, they said it was the most press credentials that had been requested in a long time.

There is a video about the choir of St George's Chapel, Windsor, which Sophie herself has narrated. It is a recent video, however I am unsure of the exact dates. It is lovely to watch and great to hear Sophie narrating. I don't think I have ever heard her talk so much, and her voice is quite eloquent.

Included in the video is Edward attending a concert and meeting a young member of the choir.
