At this time I am very much reminded of a much repeated quote (not sure if its true are not), but someone once said Catherine was very lucky to be dating William, and she replied...He is lucky enough to be dating me!

What is very apparent from these pictures are that they are a great team together. What a fantastic trip thus far. I can't wait until this evening.

I wish she would stop plonking her hats on loose flowing hair. It does nothing for her despite the fashion police being so far up her behind that they will say anything she does is fabulous.

I love the maple leaf pin, though I agree rubies would be better than diamonds.

However, when they were in Quebec, would it be acceptable if she wore a fleur-de-lis?

(But that is connected to the French monarchy, right?) Anyone know about this?

I'll try to create a Flickr account and post the larger versions of my photos there at some point, but in the meantime, here is another photo of Prince William - my friend took it. The second one I took of Stephen Harper - not as exciting, I know, but it still shows how close we were (briefly)! to the walkabout after the ceremony.

To me, the biggest surprise of today's speech by William, and a really wonderful one at that, was his shout out to all of those taking part in the Recovery Efforts going on in Quebec, Manitoba, Sask and Alberta. All four Provinces have been hit and hit hard by Mother Nature either w/flooding or Forest Fire. Such as a Forest Fire literally wiping out much of what was the town of Great Slave Lake, Alberta and unbelievable flooding in the other three Provinces.

It was fantastic to hear William mention them and thank them for all the hard work they've done and still have to do.

She looks even better than earlier on. Apparently they are watching the exact same concert that was performed early today. ouch, that must be fun!

I just read on twitter that she and William got out off their seats and started to dance, but then got embarrassed after realizing they were on the big screen.

Glad they're having a good time. Hopefully we'll get some video clips.

Last year the Queen wore the maple leaf brooch on a red dress. Maybe someday there will be one with rubies. Maybe rubies and Canadian diamonds.

Everyone I've talked to today about Kate's hat has loved it.

It's not the same Concert. Just a couple of the same performers.

Thank you for the link, but it's not letting me view. Saying that the video is not available outside of Canada. Bummer.

Sorry, the CBC feed was working for non-Canadians earlier.

A shot from a video, you can see better the front of the dress. Searching for it online, and could only find similar ones
