Yes, the California flag has a (now extinct) California Golden (grizzly) Bear on it. We do still have a lot of black bears: case in point is that one was removed from a back yard in the city of San Luis Obispo in central California just a week or so ago and one was spotted during a live tv broadcast at a Lake Tahoe ski resort on July 4th.

I think it's against protocol but today the Duke and Duchess openly hugged people during the walkabout. An interesting tidbit I was reading an article don't remember which but this family who came to the walkabout had lost everything. The only thing that they had left was a photo of their family that they took in London at William and Kate's wedding.

Good grief, big deal, what kind of "private moment"? They are not in an intimate clinch, they are merely watching the fireworks. Some people find an excuse to complain about anything and everything.

Idk we have the exact same kind of photo from that night released by the government, so I don't really get the what's the big deal bout this one.

Kinda of a debbie downer article but it does have a bit of truth to it.

You could not have said it better. I don't want to be redundant and repeat what others have said regarding their kindness and genuine interest in those they meet and talk to, so I will just give a *thumbs up*, because those are my thoughts exactly.

ETA: Thanks to Mia_mae for pointing out that it was not a hug but still a nice moment. Good on Catherine for letting her get to so close to take a picture with her.

I get the feel from the argument that the real issue is with the journalists and media at events. They've been given a tight rope they must adhere to, and everyone is vying for these great photos and are expected not to trespass on the Duke and Duchess' private time since they're so being so good about being seen "with the public" and then this photo appears from a member of the government. Kind of a slap in the face for many media members, as they'd be in trouble if they published a photo in their publications.

I'm not seeing a big deal with the photo, but I don't think that's the issue really...more that the media is up in arms about the hypocrisy.

No, it wasn't a hug, I believe. The girl was trying to make Kate take a picture with her. So she put her arm (which really shocked me, I think there is a limit to proximity) on Catherine's back to make her realize she wanna to take the picture, I guess. Tricky situation, it's against the protocol, but to make a fuss about it , would only create unnecessary comments.

Anyways, they spend a good amount of time with people of Slave Lake. And I'm sure those who went, were pleased with the gestures.

Oh really? I only saw a few secs and it looked like a hug well good on Catherine for letting her get so close to her.

Kate did hug someone either yesterday or the day before and William also posed for a photo w/someone in Slave Lake today. Also not the first time that's happened on this Tour, which is fantastic IMO. Part of the criticism of The Royal Family in the past has been their "stand off-ishness". Seeing the both of them treat the people/groups the way they have during their Walkabouts certainly show this is a far different Royal Couple.

As for Tony Clement's incredably stupid stunt...It's not only the Media being ticked off by him doing that, but when you're invited/chosen to be part of the make up of the group of people to be inside an Event, such as the Meet and Greet at the War Museum and today in Slave Lake, you are *not* allowed to bring any cameras inside w/you. I'm assuming that also goes for camera phones these days. If you're carrying a purse, it's searched before you're allowed entry into the building where the event is taking place.

I can understand the Media being ticked off about this, and rightfully so I might add, however this isn't some silly thing that happened here either. Here we have a Federal Cabinet Minister of the Government of Canada coming across as being above the rules that apply to everyone else when it comes to attending a Royal Event or if you're a member of the Media that's part of the Press Pool covering the Tour.

Everyone's entitled to their opinion about this, but Clement *should* have known better and I'm not impressed at all.

That has got to be awkward for Catherine. Refusing and making a fuss would create a fuss, so I guess one just goes with the flow in this case.

I wonder if anyone tells the public not to put their hands on the royals (unless the royals are the ones initiating the contact). I remember when I was at stage door of a Broadway production couple of years back, the security guard specifically instructed people not to touch any of the actresses, unless the actresses initiated contact first. It worked quite well.

All in all, I think Katherine scored a slam dunk in Canada.
