I've never posted pictures before so I hope this works.

The first shot is of some of the crowd, the second of Justin Trudeau and the GG's wife, Sharon Johnston. Beside Trudeau was his wife, but you can't see her because the officer behind them was blocking the view. The third pic is William and Kate greeting Trudeau and Sophie, the fourth of them greeting Christy Clark and her son. The fifth picture is of the bald man in blue who everyone thought was William (which was one of my favourite parts of the day). The last picture is of William and Kate with the GG.

Thanks Ish for the wonderful pictures you've posted. I agree with everyone else that Trudeau is most certainly a good looking guy and that guy in the blue suit can very well be William's body double.

The Cambridges do look like they're really enjoying themselves and I'm sure they didn't disappoint the crowds that turned out to see them.

Ish, thank you for posting your/your friend's own photos.

It looks like you got a chance to have a good look at William and Catherine "in the flesh".

Worth the long journey there and back to get so close, as some of the crowd photos from this ceremony - well if I didn't know what Catherine was wearing, I don't think I could have picked the Royal couple out.

Thanks again.

What an outfit of the durchess...

The dress is cute anyway - if you are a bubblegum. The shoes look very good, but the colour "bites" the colour of the dress.

The kids are little charmers, of course.

Royal photog Mark Stewart has gotten in the habit of tweeting before an event starts. So, yesterday, he tweeted a pic just before takeoff - a nice heads up!
Today, his first tweet: https://twitter.com/RegalEyes/status/780391513243185152
Mark seems to be one of the photogs in the limited press pool today. Expect pics to be slow in coming as a result of the use of a pool and the remote location.

Heavy rain of 1-2 inches is expected today for Bella Bella. It looks to lighten up, but not necessarily stop after 1PM local time. Bummer.
I have a nice waterproof running jacket that would be a better fit for Wills than Kate that I would be happy to loan them.

As an outsider (American) one thing I find fascinating about the BRF is the "political" line they are supposed to avoid. So, a couple of links to the underlying stories today.
First, the Black Rod ceremony has an undercurrent coming from the First Nations. Read more at https://twitter.com/UBCIC/status/780400397324197888

Second and including interview bits from Carolyn Harris, more about the Rainforest and political will from Bella Bella - it's hunting season: How green are the royals? Great Bear Rainforest will give William and Kate glimpse of 'stunning' natural world - Canada - CBC News

And on a personal note, I promise to shut up and get back to my real work. Royal distraction is not my friend!

I am familiar with the concept of Black Rod from the UK parliament, but could you please explain what that ceremony at the BC Legislature is exactly about ?

Well, could you imagine the canadian gov. general and his wife not bowing/ curtsying when being invited in Buck. Palace, but when they receive the Royals in Canada they´re acting "republican"....?!
In Belgium and the Netherlands curtsies have been "abolished" by the royal houses themselves, nobody else decided to do so. In Sweden (at court) curtsies/ bows are not abolished at all! It is the private decision of left wing politicians not to bow. But there was never an official "decleration" (as dutch Queen Juliana, as far as I know, did) by the court that isn´t wished anymore.
This egalitarian north american country you´re speaking of is still a monarchy with a ROYAL head of state. And to me it seems quite a contradiction to hand out measures of royal etiquette, how to behave when meeting the ducal couple (as happend before this tour: no hats after 6.30 pm, not referring to the Duchess as "Kate" etc.) while canadian civil servants seem to refuse any good behaviour.
What´s next? Calling the Royals in a speech by their 1st names? "Hey, what´s up Wills and Kate?! Thanks for coming round...."

I just hate these "in-between-situations"; either you´re a republic and you don´t give about a damn about these things, or you´re in a monarchy and you recognize that certain things, like basic royal etiquette, are part of that package.

Forget the plane, we are going by boat (I mean the royal we): https://twitter.com/duchesskatenews/...28370915958785

https://twitter.com/pulse1077/status/780428903399591936

Hmm - it's 350 miles as the crow flies to Bella Bella. Maybe flying in but not aerial tour?

EDIT: As of 9am Pacific time, there are reports of both planes and a boat leaving now. Who knows. Maybe bring the TARDIS next time?

And this is hilarious: https://twitter.com/TatlerUK/status/780428052350267393

I fully agree. You don't get to pick and choose which parts of the Royal etiquette you wish to follow and which to ignore. Besides, we should maybe become more aware of basic good manners again( like keeping your hands out of trouser pockets when in a formal situation, take off your baseball cap when seated in a restaurant, respect the parking spot for the disable/elderly).

Since the Royal couple make an effort to do the right and proper thing, those who meet them should do likewise imo.

thank you to all for the links and photos.
Makes me want to visit Canada

video of William giving a few words in French, and as he says "work with me, its a little rusty". Always nice to try a say a few words in another language.


On today's events
"Weather atrocious for William & Kate's visit to Bella Bella today. Some activities may be cancelled.But hopeful they should still get there!"

"William & Kate still heading to Bella Bella today but the weather has meant their float plane tour of the Great Bear Rainforest is cancelled"

I don't think bowing and curtsying are necessary elements of royal protocol. As I said, bowing and curtsying are no longer observed in Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and, most of the time, in Sweden, but that doesn't make the "loyal subjects" of those countries more republican than their counterparts in places where curtsying is still observed like Denmark, Spain, or the UK.

In fact, even in the UK, bowing and curtsying are always optional. It would be odd not to do it in front of members of the royal family, because it is the socially accepted custom, but nobody is required to do it.

His French pronunciation was actually better than last time he was in Canada, but still ...

It is interesting how continental princes like Willem-Alexander, Frederik, or Felipe can speak at least three of four languages fluently whereas the British princes struggle to read two paragraphs or so in French.

I fully disagree.

Monarchies evolve to reflect the society they're in, and etiquette does (or should) do the same. What works in Europe might not work outside of Europe.

Given the situation and the individuals present I wasn't remotely surprised as the lack of any bows or curtseys. The GG and LG should not have done so, as in Canada they're the representatives of the Queen. I bet that the GG's wife followed her husband's lead on this.

The PM is in a tricky spot on this - as while his party officially continues to support maintaining the monarchy, he's from Quebec and the voters in his riding very likely don't. He did now to the Queen when he met her in the UK last year. The PM's wife also likely followed her husband's lead on this.

Which leaves the Premier and her son - at which point it would have seemed odd for them to bow/curtsey when the others were not. Not to mention the fact that while she doesn't have to deal with Quebec, Christy Clark is the Provincial level equivalent of Justin Trudeau (in role, not in person).
