That looks like a lovely place to stay. It has also become somewhat of a tradition for members of the royal family to stay at such places during their visits to Alberta.

William's great-grandparents stayed at Jasper Park Lodge in 1939 (a beautiful photo of the royal couple)

And of course, this was my favourite part:

In 1939, my great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, said of her first Tour of Canada with her husband, King George VI: `Canada made us`. Catherine and I now know very well what she meant.


Canada has far surpassed all that we were promised. Our promise to Canada is that we shall return.

If you wanted to know what the Duke and Duchess said to each other tonight just read this pretty amusing especially since I was trying to read their lips. I got some parts right

Hello, my first post here. I wanted to say how much I enjoyed this tour and I think they couldn't have chosen a better country for their first official tour. Beautiful country and such a warm and welcoming people.

I have question, weren't they supposed to attend a black tie event tonight?

The BMO event was the one where William made the speech promising to return to Canada.
Video from the speeches: CBC.ca Player
Photo:Photo from Reuters Pictures ther are many more on The Canadian Heritage's flickr account and on Getty Images
There is more footage from inside the National showed it but it seems none of the agencies have had a chance to upload it yet.

There was no black tie event,aliela. The only one I know of will be the Bafta's in LA on Saturday.

Going to bed now see you all bright and early tomorrow morning for the end of this tour.

I was going to post this video. Great speeches, the PM's was funny and of course William and Kate look really good.

The PM announced the Government of Canada's gift to the couple, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Parks Canada Youth Ambassadors Program which marks the 100 years of Parks Canada.

I have to add that I loved the opening of William's speech and the laugh!

Some great quotes also from the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, about her connection and fondness for Canada (both from the PM and the Duke)

Here's a great photo of William taking on the reins.

Bless her heart, she's had two pictures taken from behind that are a little embarrassing (well, they would be if it was me). I wonder if she'll follow her deceased mother in law and have weights added to the hems of her dresses/skirts.

Thanks Mia_Mae! The parade looks like so much fun. Cowboy gear, and country music. All that's missing is ice cold beer! Feel's like home here in Texas

William and Kate have now left. I assume they have gone to change and then they head off to the zoo
