This is an interesting article on the "privacy row" regarding the candid shots taken of Catherine and George. It is Australian, shows that at least 1 Aus publication complied with the request (they explain why) and that the other media outlets chose not to agree to the request. The last section on proposed changes to privacy laws is also insightful. Worth the read

According to Tim Ewart of ITV, William and Catherine have been told of the death of MArk Shand

Kate & William in Canberra told of Mark Shand's death - ITV News

I think that after a suitable period of time, William may take up leading Mark's elephant charity.

EDIT: Ive read that Mark Shand was in fact a Trustee of the Charity - sorry for error. But I think William would love to get involved.

Patron not leading the charity. It would need total dedication.

I've made a change to my post, before I saw this.

Bright, bright green for the Duchess at today's tree-planting. And the Duke is being reported as wearing a gold tie - though it doesn't come across as gold on my telly. Australia's National colours are green and gold.
And bright, bright Autumn sunshine - with a bit of a breeze.

Six year old twin boys helped the Duke and Duchess by watering the English Oak - little red watering cans - I guess they get to keep those .
Pod Playground looks fun.
The National Aboretum is being planted in an area previously burnt bare by bushfire.
The Danish Crown Prince Couple, and the Sultan of Brunei, have planted a tree already.

The Duchess' outfit is by Catherine Walker.

Off to Parliment House next for the Duke's speech.
(Parliment House is is ''buried'' under one of Canberra's hills - large flag-pole on top, with grass growing up and over it.)
TV broadcast now from inside the Great Hall of Parliment House, with people behind ropes waiting for the Royals.
The Hall is marble - with fossils caught within the marble. There is a small sea-horse on one of the steps everyone tries to find.
Singer Gurrumul Yunupingu can be head rehearsing for this afternoon's event.
A couple of sneezes from W when he got out of the car for the tree-planting - Australia's pollens etc different to UK maybe.

Really, a bright green? I can't wait to see those pictures. I hope William doesn't call Kate a lime!

Sun Lion- One wonders what William's comment on today's bright outfit will be?
Catherine Walker-
Barrenness of Books- - limes, bananas, we can have a fruit salad!

Reporters think the Duchess may change clothes between events.
Now after noon local time, so maybe they've ducked back to see PG at Yarralumla for lunch, and the Duchess will be able to try another outfit.
P.S. I love colour - brights, pastels, anything - fruit salad sounds good to me!
Arrived - same outfit.
Traditional Greeting now, and meeting our Federal politicians.

I like that green dress! William's tie looks grey to me, not gold. *peers closely at photo* Actually it looks like something from Christian Grey's wardrobe.

Bring on the still photos! I'm dying to see this dress.

The Duke said - in his speech - that he and Prince Harry will be attending next year's Anzac ceremonies at Gallipoli.

(In Turkey if you weren't sure - big event - one hundred year anniversary.

People had to enter a ballot to get the chance to be allowed to be there.)

Thanks- never heard of the place. But isn't ANZAC an Australian/New Zealand thing? What's Turkey got to do with it?
Something to look forward to- if Prince William says he's going, then there is no guesswork. Those Royals sure do plan in advance!
Sun Lion- what time is the Gov. Gen.'s reception?
And can we have some still photos of Kate and her green dress please?

Yes, it is an Australian/New Zealand thing, but there were British troops there too. Oh, and Turkey had quite a bit to do with it.

The Duchess has teamed the outfit with emerald and diamond drop-earings and nude-coloured heels. Hair loose.

Interesting idea that if the Gallipoli Campaign had not failed in 1915, and the Allied troops had been able to move onwards, then Russia may not have lost it's Royal Family and fallen to Communism. Also, if on their side, the Russian Royals had gotten their jewels out, Communism may have failed, as they had to break up those jewels to pay to get a foothold in the early years. (Maybe there is a thread about this already on TRFs if you're interested.)

The Governor-General's Reception is this evening, local time, I think.
Only that - or Anzac Day tomorrow - to bring out the famed ''Wattle'' Brooch.
