Hello! I am new to The Royal Forum and very happy to be here. I live in California (in the Bay Area - too far from L.A.) and was happy to just be in same state and HRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I will also experience withdrawal from the tour being over. I was obsessed with following them for eleven days. My question to The Royal Forum is this: Will and Catherine did not wave as they left on the plane. I understand they stood and looked back but did not wave. Is that normal protocol? I worry Prince William wasn't happy. Does anyone know about The Royal Family's etiquette on waving vs. not waving? Thank you!

Prince William and wife, Catherine, drop in at Inner-City Arts
July 10, 2011 | 4:50 pm

Prince William and wife, Catherine, drop in at Inner-City Arts - latimes.com

Quote:
At one point, Catherine turned to her husband and said, "William, do you know what you're doing? Start from the center." After a few moments, he turned back to his wife and said, "Catherine, what are you supposed to do?" She laughed and instructed him again.
They're so freakin adorable!

Aww! Well I guess that answers our question of what he said to her that made everyone laugh! That was a great part of the tour...they got dirty and had fun with the kids.

Welcome to TRF--it's usually lots of fun here, and you will learn amazing things. Yes, the Royal Family frequently waves, and since William and Catherine 'planely' had a good time in Cali, I woudn't worry that they didn't wave. They were smiling, and that's what counts.

I, too, am going through withdrawal. I've been getting on the computer so often these ten days, that it is downright embarassing. I've been telling my husband more than he wants to know about it all. When I told him about the PEI lobster comments and about the girl who called William the "Dootch", he (my husband) said, "Is it always this funny?"

It just baffles me how the fact that the heir to the heir and his new wife being present at this occasion is important enough to describe them as ambassadors. Let us hope that when these young actors use the numbers on the visiting cards they were given, and the Prince is not present, that they will get answers to their calls.
I did to! I only saw the Hollywood types. I agree with the rest of what you said. After all the point of the event was to celebrate the British film industry but it seemed more like they were celebrating the American industry.

Brittish Air from LAX to Heathrow is a direct flight. My guess an eight to nine hours flight.

Let me just get this out now: I SAW THEM IN LA!

I had heard a lot of naysaying about the opportunities to see the couple, but decided to take a chance and camp out for the BAFTA event, which was given minimal exposure in the LA media compared to the "$4000 Polo Match!!". And it was amazing.

What made it worthwhile for me was the people who were also there waiting hours for the Royal Couple. It was a great atmosphere, with everyone being just so damn happy about...everything. Everyone was so kind and united in their admiration for the royals. It made the experience so special. The reaction to the Hollywood stars were NOTHING compared to William and Kate. When that motorcade arrived, you could just feel the excitement.

The Duke exited the car right in front of where I was - such a great memory.

The Telegraph wrote that they will land at around 10am London time.

A big round of applause for William & Kate for completing an absolutely BRILLIANT first overseas tour. Hats off to both of them! WHAT. A. PAIR. And forget about what Kate wore (they're all lovely, btw), it's the way they interacted with the crowd and brought genuine compassion to everything they did that truly made them a class act. I am very excited for the future of the monarchy with these two around... I hope they get the much deserved rest and down time now, although I personally can't wait for their next tour. Bring on Australia!

It's booked at 9 hours 31 minutes. The airplane just passed over Greenland. (It can be tracked here.)

Ok, everyone, time for your FAVORITE MOMENTS and why

FAVORITE....

CITY/PROVINCE: Prince Edward Island. They were the most "themselves"

WILLIAM MOMENT: His first speech in Ottawa. My first time hearing him speak French. It was priceless. Just a hoot.

KATE MOMENT: When she said "woooo" back every time the crowd cheered "wooo" in the Quebec walkabout

COUPLE MOMENT: Who could forget the PEI playful cuddle? But the best for me was when the crowd's cheers went on and on and on during the Canada Day morning show. And William turned bright red and Kate gave him a pat on the knee.

SURPRISING MOMENT: The PDA's! Did not expect that at all. Surprised with the PEI cuddle. Surprised with the polo trophy kisses. Lovely to see them let their guard down a little

TOUCHING MOMENT: Kate with 6-year-old Diamond Marshall

ENGAGEMENT/EVENT: Dragonboat racing at PEI. Once again, they were most themselves. Also loved the Quebec walkabout.

KATE LOOK: Floral dress by Jenny Packham for polo. Odd choice, I know. But she looked fresh as a daisy and the most natural.

WILLIAM LOOK: Howdy, cowboy! Enough said.

I'm very happy for you and glad you decided to make the effort to see William and Kate. I'm regretting, although less so today that I didn't even try especially after seeing that the couple did shake hands and greet the folks around Hancock Park. It wouldn't have occurred to me to hang out at that location so I'm just happy for those that got a chance to see them.

I agree they did a fantastic job. I can only imagine how tired they are. I bet Kate can't wait to get into her own bed and have a home cooked meal. I'd be wanting to get back to my "normal" life as soon as possible. I bet it will be nice for her to run to the grocery store for a change or sit alone at her house without anyone telling her she's got to be somewhere. At least for a couple of days.

William said he could hardly wait to get home to Anglesey and lie down in a dark room.
