Of course it is optional - nobody forces you to do anything. But I´m sure the Queen likes to see people curtsying or bowing. And in Britain many people do while in Canada, which I observed during this tour, virtually no one does - not even the Governeur General and his wife which I found very odd indeed!

You repeated your objections concerning the Benelux Countries and Sweden, so I have to repeat again that it is a difference if royal houses once decided to abolish certain parts of the royal etiquette or if people surrounding the royal family simply decide for themselves not to curtsy, for instance! And in Sweden many people do curtsy or bow (you can watch this every time for a royal birthday or something), especially people working at the court.

Early looks - nothing of the kids - just the environs so far:

Just a quick thought -- I was there at the opening ceremony in Victoria last Saturday and the crowds were just as adoring of William as of Kate (or Justin Trudeau). I don't for one minute believe people are not just as happy to meet him as her.

I love Princess Charlotte. She is so active and cute. Prince George is also a little charmer. William and Catherine must be very proud of the children.

That's one patient dog!

Haven't W&K got a dog at home? If so what breed is it? - Hopefully not a (by now concave) dachshund!

Charlotte's first word uttered in public polyesco - "pop" - in regards to the balloons according to the "Daily Mail/Mail Online".

(Can't remember what PG's first one was.)

Great photos - Charlotte and the bunny, PG and the bubbles. Now PG is being quoted directly rather than quotes about him from his parents.

Is the unfortunate Lupo concave? The children seem to be having a good time, though it took George a bit of time to get into the swing, I think. It looks as if Charlotte's outgoing. Loves those balloons! Didn't she say "Dada" earlier?

That's what the "Daily Mail/Mail Online" have her saying to get William's attention Curryong.

And before that "pop" while hugging the balloons.

They also have quotes of what George is saying.

First photo of George on horseback. Hope Charlotte has a go.

Print reporters reporting on Twitter that they were not allowed into the grounds as television reporters were. We know that's not entirely true as Rebecca and Victoria have been tweeting their lil fingers off. But I can understand the second class perception.

These pictures and videos made my day! George seems to be a bit shy/reticent at first, but warmed up as he got more used to things. Charlotte, on the other hand, seems to be more outgoing (of course, she is still very little and may grow more reserved as she gets older).

I noticed that Charlotte was wearing the same cardigan that George did when he went to visit her in the hospital when she was born!

I think here yesterday, we were chatting about Haida Gwaii and worried at the logistics of traffic/cars/one lane roads/ferries, etc.
Well - here is one answer - from Skidegate Landing they will canoe 1 km to the Heritage Center. I am sure some press will be in a chase boat. https://twitter.com/allthingsregal/s...75216082325504

Canoe practice today: https://www.instagram.com/p/BHf0oS-hMgW/
Weather - sunny AM then chance of showers in the afternoon. Winds 10 kmph from the east.
