The Royal press pack was occupied by William and Kate plus the press was staying in Vancouver not Victoria to make the travel easier so they didn't really have time to stalk the kids.

In the live feed of the youth leader meeting, you could see the Mirror's Victoria Murphy basically following behind the royals talking to the people that they just talked to. Seaplane pilot, balloon guy, bubble girl all got interviewed.

Not seen the video, so no comment there. As for George and Charlotte ? Two little kids, while cute, aren't likely to change the state of a nation! Please!

I'm a bit amazed at how tight the circle is getting between the mainstream professional media and the Royal watchers/fans.


And that series of photos of George with his nose squished against the plane's windows must be amongst his best.


P.S. I've just seen a photo of Charlotte on one of the ponies at the children's party.

William said - when asked if they had their own pony at home - "not yet".

Looking through Canadian Heritage's videos I can't say I agree. If you can make ice sculpture carving seem vaguely dreary, you may not actually be great at producing effective videos.

Their video of the first day of the trip was hilarious, though; from the clip selections and the music, you'd think the waiting reporters were prepared for Putin to step off the plane.

I suspect they rely heavily on public domain music, because that's the only rational explanation I can find for their inexplicable choices otherwise.

As a father of three, including a toddler, I'm sure he knows how to handle children. You might remember that his youngest gave Barak Obama a high five in the White House when the family visited Washington in the summer. As pointed out by others, maybe high fives are just a North American thing.
And Trudeau has plenty of personal experience with this sort of thing, meeting and shaking hands with world leaders as a small child himself when his own father was PM. I'm sure he was being nothing but friendly.

ps...I mean to quote your post Daria, but hit the edit button instead by mistake, sorry about that.
Ha, just because he is a father of three doesn't mean he knowable how to deal with children. No, we don't remember his youngest east giving our president a high five, perhaps that is only a North American thing. Anyway his intentions t .are I guess what we are talking about. Yes, I do believe he was more interested in the impression he was making than making a three year old comfortable

Justin only wanted the photo op. That's all he was interested in.

President Obama is pretty great with little kids. Him high fiving Trudeau's youngest may be more about Obama's skill than Justin Trudeau's parenting expertise. Compare the GG handshake to the PM's attempt. The GG was engaging both William and George and George shook his hand after William encouraged him. The PM tried to interact with George solo.

As a little girl, I was very awkward with shaking hands. I could never get the right hand out. Turns out I am very strongly left-handed. George seems to be a righty, but young kids sometimes have trouble crossing the midline of their bodies and get confused about shaking hands. Sometimes they get it, and the next time they don't.

I thought he was remarkably polite and patient for a 3 year old. His parents and nanny seem to be doing a great job. And William has a nice, firm grip on George's hand! W&K have 2 very cute children.

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but what happened after they took off in that water plane in Victoria harbour? Where did the ducal family change into the plane for their final departure to Britain?

Yeah I just went back and had another look. I didn't notice the other videos from Heritage Canada are slow motion with odd music as well

I guess because this one is dark it stands our more. Not great videos from the Canadian government.

I assume the military base where they arrived coming from the U.K. Victoria is on a island. The Canadian RAF would have flown them back home.

Because the royal watchers, especially on the more serious fora, tend to be much more well informed than the average journalist?

Evidently Victoria Airport (which does have a seaplane terminal near it).

Prince George turned pilot as the royals left Canada and announced: "I'm going to fly us to England" - Mirror Online

"And once the family landed at Victoria Airport the prince got the chance to go into the cockpit where he pretended to fly."

I actually thought we would've gotten the chance to see them board the plane to fly back home. They made the seaplane the final departure and no one got to see them actually leave. Totally different than last time they left Canada.

Perhaps there were heightened security concerns.

Regular people in person got to wave them off from the float plane airport. They could not do that from an airport tarmac.

The RCAF Airbus was located at a part of the airport that services 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron and it's not open to the public.

It was decided to have the official send off with the seaplane and that way both the press and public could wave goodbye.

I had my blog quoted once on a German website in an article about Sofia wearing her sash poorly. It was a very cool moment for me, lol. And it's always cool to see other posters get quoted on stuff.

I didn't get to follow most of the Canada tour as I've been rather busy lately, so it's nice to catch up now. I've enjoyed seeing all the photos and watching the video clips.

William and Catherine are great with the public and I love the photo of Catherine shaking hands with a woman who then had a very happy expression, that was priceless

The photos and videos of George and Charlotte at the farm are too cute for words! I love the photos of both children with the bubbles; and the photo of Charlotte with the rabbit is also super cute. As for George's reaction to Justin Trudeau's offer of a high five, I think it could also be due to their protection from the press. Even though this was a formal situation, perhaps George is cautious of meeting new people incase he somehow thinks they are paparazzi. It was also midnight in England when the Cambridges arrived in Canada, which is very late for a child of George's age, so perhaps he was 'shy' because he was getting a little tired and didn't really feel like greeting people whom would be strange politicians and officials to him.

I adored Charlotte's outfits throughout the tour and found most of George's to be rather sweet.

It was a beautiful tour by the Cambridge's indeed. Now, it would be nice of William and Catherine to pick up some causes in Canada and firm a relationship with some regiments there. That way they could form a more close relationship with the Canadian people and military. It will lead to more working visits in the future.
