Thanks for posting that I didn't see that tweet and I totally agree with Humera's comments, I really cannot understand the British Press.

Also here are some pics:

Welcome to Canada Your Royal Highnesses!!!

Oh, how I wish I could have gotten to Ottawa, but just was not happening. At least I can enjoy the visit thanks to the magic of TV and w/all of you too.

My favourite part, was at the War Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I really loved the addition of there being a Bouquet for Kate to lie beside William's wreath. I've never seen that before, but what a lovely and respectful addition to the Ceremony.

For those who would like a better look at Canada's National War Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier...

I took these pictures when in Ottawa January of 2006 attending as a fan the 2006 Canadian National Figure Skating Championships. I was packing the night before I left when my Dad came in and asked if we could talk. He came over and said that while he understood if I couldn't do it, because he knows that when you're at the Arena for an event like this, you're there for the Day, he had a Request.

He'll never have the chance to visit his brother/my Uncle Leslie's Grave in the Commonwealth War Graves Cemetary in England, but was hoping if I was able to find time, to visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and in turn the National War Memorial and pay my respects in honour of him.

As I told him, I'd *make* the time. As it turned out, it was on the direct route of the Ottawa Transit bus I took as far as where I had to Transfer to take the one to the Arena. So I decided to make my visit on Saturday morning and...

My Photobucket Album ~ 2006 Canadian Figure Skating Championships

There are a couple of pics from the Championships, but not that many as the arena lighting and my camera didn't like each other very much. The majority of the photos there are of the National War Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Anyway...I just thought I'd share that w/those of you who would like a closer look of both the War Memorial and the Tomb of Canada's Unknown Soldier.

Looking forward to tomorrow and Canada Day!!!!

Not to be picky but no they weren't- Catherine was a hair of a second behind him (doesn't matter, just saying)

When William and Kate walked in to the Tent Room at Rideau Hall it fell silent. William quipped 'talk among yourselves"

Organisers of the barbecue for William and Kate have moved it inside - to the Tent Room at Rideau Hall - because of the rain

I don't think it's a cocktail dress just because it's before 5. It looks like a simple sleeveless dress with a lace overlay.

Whew! Just got through everything (spent about an hour watching the arrivals/war memorial coverage, but didn't see anything regarding the event[s] later this evening)! What a great start. Their people skills are flawless! I think politicians and celebrities should take leafs out of William and Catherine's book when it comes to interactions with the public/fans.

Looking forward to the rest with great anticipation.

Thank you for sharing! You have captured some lovely shots. William's facial expressions in some of the pictures are very endearing.

Edit: Thank you JulieS for the 'who is who'. Always good to know who we're looking at (besides the obvious of course).
