For a while there it puzzled me that I wasn't finding much coverage of Charles and Camilla actually landing in Canada until I figured it out. Jet lag. I remember reading somewhere they were to land around 7:45 pm but realized that to them, it'd seem like 12:45 pm and their bodies would just be to tired out for much pomp and circumstance then. :smile:

after the official arrival ceremony, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived to New Brunswick. While there, they had a walkabout in Saint John, and visited Hazen White-St. Francis school.

- Camilla in grandmother mode (how cute is that baby?)
- Prince Charles playing a game of shinny
- Charles looking pretty impressed
- Charles and Camilla trying school food
- The couple leaving Saint John (by the look of it, it was really windy) ;)

Can anyone make out what badges Charles is wearing on his lapels?

KittyAtlanta 05-21-2012 05:33 PM

Could be Olympic pins.

EIIR 05-21-2012 06:28 PM

I think one of them is of a Canadian flag. I remember William wearing an identical one when in Canada last year. May William gave it to his father for this trip?

Apparently Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were greeted by large crowds today.

^Well large for Charles and Camilla. Also it is a statutory holiday (same as a bank holiday in the UK) so a large number of people have the day off work, plus it is nice weather so this may contribute to more people coming out to see them.

And it is apparent that with each visit to Canada, Charles and Camilla are making inroads into gaining popularity here.

We should remember that a large number of people in Canada do not follow the royal family on a daily basis and this means that many of them have not come to terms about Charles and Camilla. However, with each visit Charles and Camilla make more friends and win more people over, so hopefully they will continue to visit and be more warmly received with each visit.
