I love that they took the train from the aiport and I particularly liked that they had train tickets! It's a quick and cheap way of travel and I know the Queen uses the train a lot.

I am glad Sophie will visit Fort Mac. Coming from an Albertan, that means a lot. I wonder if she is coming to Edmonton (mentioned) or just a stop over on way north. I am sad Ed is only in Calgary but if Sophie is in Edmonton could chance seeing her. But either way, very happy at least one of them is going up.

Lots of videos of their visit to the Goverment House here.

This video in particular pleased me because at the very end they share a kiss to say goodbye to each other as Sophie is going to Edmonton without Edward. They're a very private couple so I was surprised by this and the crowd "awww"ed them as they did it. Cute.

Definitely, even more considering the geographic distance they traveled during their stay. Not exactly cross the entire country but over 2700 km covered, 3 provinces and 5 cities in 4 days. Shame they don't get more pr.

I can't believe Sophie's attendance to Wimbledon counted as an engagement!

Thanks for the CC list. It's always nice to see what both Edward and Sophie are doing as their work, as we all know, goes largely uncovered. Thanks to Anna's blog we get to see so much more of Sophie's hard work.

I look forward to seeing if Sophie receives any coverage when she does her Diamond Challenge!

Did Kate's visit make the CC too or Camilla's earlier visit - they both met the officials and ball kids, which I didn't see Sophie do? Maybe what events are on the CC is more based on what is submitted by the various private secretary than some yea/nay from the Queen?

Oh, I’m sorry I added that, it was not in the official CC. I’d add a notation to make it clear, but can't edit the post. Also there are some days missing in the CC, so I only added those engagements I found evidence of or those that were in planned engagements.
