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).

I noticed in that Daily Mail article that was posted, the Queen allowed Catherine to choose some pieces from her jewel collection to wear on this 11-day trip. I wonder what goodies we'll be seeing.

I love their loving looks at one another. It amazes me that they were able to keep the depth of their feelings for one another from the prying press. They must have concentrated very hard NOT to look at one another that way. It is a joy to see.

they apparently travelled with a canadian forces airbus. i wonder if it is only used for dignataries and VIP users. wonder what it has inside :)

it seems in the schedule that wednesday is a day off for the couple. i wonder why they left one day off? is it to recover from the busy schedule?
It's the same plane the Prime Minister uses.

I forgot there are a special thread just for the riyal tour! William and Catherine were so warmly received by the Canadians, it was lovely. The look exchanges are always my favorite part. this is a reserved couple , so I really get excited with little

Apparently The Queen lent some jewels for Catherine to use during the tour, and that makes me even more anxious about their upcoming appearances.

Agree! and look at this After the couple got into their waiting car at the war memorial, their first major test of the trip over, the Duchess showed her affection - and relief - by cuddling into her husband's shoulder, prompting an approving smile in return.

I wish it was caught on camera. At least a picture. They seem very protective of their relationship which is understandable considering the scrutiny they have to go through. But I wish they'd relax every once in a while and hold hands or something. I'd love to see them show their affection for each other without holding back. Not full on PDA or anything but at least hand holding.

Who knows? Maybe when William plays polo in Cali and she's supposed to present a trophy we'll get a lil kiss there.

I can only post quickly because I have to go to bed...to get up early tomorrow morning to make my way down to Parliament Hill for the Canada Day festivities...but I was also at Rideau Hall today. I didn't get nearly as close as bweir obviously was, and my attempts at taking photos were a total failure (I had my camera angled upwards as I raised it over people's heads, and got a lot of blurry photos of trees and one blurry photo of Kate!)

However...William and Kate did come pretty close to us, and my friend was lucky enough to get a great picture, which I'm attaching here.

Bweir and Rmay286...thanks for the great pictures. You are certainly closer than many of us and for that we thank you!

WillKate...I don't think you are NOT going to get a lot of outward affection from William and Kate..... the main reason is that once you see that....people will be looking for and making inferences on when they don't do it. Not to wish them bad, but we all have bad days and sometimes you don't feel bothered.

Most importantly, members of the BRF are notable for usually keeping their emotions intact.

All and all, I think it was a great first day. I can't wait until Canada Day...and Kate in red and white. Isn't there a formal banquet tomorrow night...I need to check out the itinerary.

It was exciting! I don't have time to give any description now - I saw William and Kate pretty briefly - but they/the monarchy definitely have a lot of support in Canada. William's speech (and his French) was very well received.

I'm glad I had my friends with me to take pictures, as I apparently completely fail at taking photos (and don't have a very good camera). Here is a photo I took of the Governor General, if anyone has any interest at all

Hopefully I'll have better luck with the picture-taking tomorrow.
