Hi gerry,

Yes - some truly beautiful places on the agenda,

Marcus Setchell, who delivered Prince George, will be made KCVO at Buck Palace tomorrow. It would be lovely if William did the investiture.

This wonderful flower-covered walking path winds along the river for blocks, and there are masses of restaurants covering many different nationalities' cuisines on the streets along side this.

The swimming area is free, and has been there for many years.

A quick walk across one of the footbridges takes you straight into the Brisbane CBD - or you can jump on the free ferry to cross.

Thank you so much for all the work you've put into giving us information and pictures of a very beautiful place to be. I'm sure that both Will and Kate are going to definitely fall in love with being "down under" and with what you've posted and what we'll be getting from the tour, it almost feels to me as if I'm taking a virtual vacation myself.

I love reading stories like this, because the remind us of the kind of impact this couple has on people around them. They're going to give this little girl, her family, and other children in this hospice a day to treasure.

Agree totally with what you said. Oh man, I am already crying reading this, and the visit hasn't even happened yet.
I was looking forward to April 18- knew it would be magical, but now to see Mia meet a real life Princess- I can hardly wait!
Glad that the visit is joint- Kate does a fine job on her own- but with William there it's double the magic, because he is so good with the children as well.

I teared up as well. The best part is, I'll be on spring break, which means (mostly) uninterrupted Royal-watching. Can't wait to see this dynamic duo in action.

Hi Osipi,

We had an amazing amount of media coverage when the Crown Prince Couple of Denmark came to Sydney for five days last October.

The scale of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Royal Tour is going to be impossible to keep up with, once it starts.

There seem to be a lot of occasions when W and C will be amongst the general public - several "walks" have already been announced.

These will go down well, and count for a lot.

I've seen reports where there is some jostling going on, to not miss out on an invitation to an event, amongst some people.

At least with these "walks", those of us without a chance of an invite, can still get a look in.

(And the final day - April 25th - is a Public Holiday, so without having to work, the crowds should be very big.)

Cheers, Sun Lion.

And mostly uninterrupted chatting with your BFF too!

Lovely picture. Nice that William was the one to do it.
He always looks suitably regal on these occasions- but friendly too.
And of course it never hurts my feelings when he wears his RAF uniform!
Or any uniform for that matter! Sorry Catherine!

Out of curiosity: Even if William and Kate didn't want to know the sex of their child, Sir Setchell must have known it right? Because he could cleary see it with the scan...So his responsibilty of keeping that secret was high...I mean... the only one ( and maybe the parents) to know if George was a boy or a girl, and with the press eager he was very professional...

Plus Sir Marcus saved Sophie and Louise's life during the delivery and thus allowing for James to come later on.

That's something for which he really deserves recognition and thanks, and people need to be reminded. Such a shame the newspaper article didn't mention it. As far as we know, George's delivery was perfectly normal and natural and would have occurred just as easily with the attendance of only a midwife. Nice that Sir Marcus was on hand to ensure it went well, but he didn't really have to do anything. On the other hand, saving Sophie and Louise required specialist skill and is something to really be proud of.

He didnt get a knighthood for just delivering George. cHe has been royal gynae for years and it his entire service, including looking after Sophie that he has been rewarded

Indeed! I had forgotten about that!
Needless to say, i'm sure a lot of people are very grateful, because had Louise and Sophie died, that would been a horrible tragedy.

I think most OBs would be really insulted to hear you say that. They perform many things other than "catch the baby." Of course no one notices when everything goes right, but OBs are highly skilled professionals who keep moms calm, manage any anatomical variances, and make sure baby is delivered in the safest way possible (and before you or anyone say it, of course nurses and midwives are also integral to the process).

Gynaecologists, most of whom are obstetricians, are not just baby-catchers and I did not say that. I am well aware that gynaecologists do many things other than attend pregnant women during the delivery of their children. I am very well aware that they also treat gynaecological cancers and pre-cancerous conditions and other conditions afflicting and associated with the female reproductive organs.
