And why should you? As you stated, you didn't care for the outfit and that's more than fine. However, that's all you said. Just an opinion and not a nasty spiteful attack against someone you'll never meet and for some odd reason need to attack whenever the chance arises.

Big difference between postings IMO.

I completely agree with this. It's hard to see such a pretty diamond brooch against the white dress.

Thanks for the photos. Especially the first one. I wish everyone the love and happiness that radiates from William and Kate.

I love the enthusiasm of the public during this visit. It would appear that at some points in his speech, William saying his wife's name got the crowd going. Again, many endearing facial expressions on the both of them. Great day number two.

That is a beautiful sentiment, and I second it wholeheartedly.

Wow was downtown Ottawa ever packed today! Never have I seen it like this! I missed W&C in the processional to Parliament Hill but got to see both of them in the recessional to Rideau Hall. They rode back in two separate cars. They look amazing in pictures and real life. I didn't get a chance to take a pic since the motorcade was moving fairly quickly and was difficult with everybody else waiving their arms in front of me and cheering.

The pictures are lovely and show exactly how this couple are with each other. William shy about all the attention and Catherine reassuring hand. I will say again, Canadians really surprised me.

I loved William's smile/laughter when the crowd started screaming. And I think he looked at Kate (camera was on her), who smiled back at him. They are too sweet for words.

He helped Kate get out of the carriage.

No wonder I couldn't see that maple leaf.

Video of them greeting the crowd





Look at William's smile when the crowd chants We want Kate! He's so in love with her!

This picture made ma laugh. I've had this happen when I asked a Broadway performer for a picture, and she was taken a little off guard when the said picture was taken (the person behind the camera got click-happy and took the picture as soon as the person said 'yes' and there was no time to actually pose).

When William talked about Catherine's grandfather and the camera was on her, you could sense she was touched. Favorite moment of the day!
Also, I love how William talked about his gradmother "The Queen of Canada" !

It's absolutely amazing how beloved these two young people are by everyone they come into contact with. The smartest thing William has ever done to date is marry that woman.

I SO agree. For the past 2 days that's all I've been telling my mom. William is smart he knew that he couldn't marry just any ordinary girl. She had to have something inside her something special and Catherine definitely has that special something about her.

I couldn't have said it better. I guess for my part I wondered for years what he saw in her, now I know. She's doing a great job and whoever has "groomed" her, whether it be William or someone at the palace, they have done an outstanding job getting her ready for the biggest job of her life.
