I am very touched to see a couple so genuinely in love and so CAPABLE. They are great representatives of Britain. (Understatement, I know)

First off, thanks bweir and rmay for sharing the photos of quite the day in Ottawa. :o)

Second...One of my favourite moment today was at the War Memorial when they started going down the line of the Veterans. Just at the start of it, I was able to lip read William (I can do it w/certain words) introducing Kate as, "...my Wife." and the look on his face...It just lit up w/so much pride and love. So lovely to see.

Now a question...There was a lady Vet in the recieving line at the War Memorial today, but neither my Dad nor I could place/identify the Uniform she was wearing. She had on a grey-ish skirt and shirt, w/a maroon coloured jacket and beret, w/a diamond regiment/association emblem on the beret. Does anyone here know which Regiment/Association this lady was there representing? Thanks in advance!!

Thank you so much for this. I was waiting for a video from the barbecue.
It was great to actually hear what William and Kate were saying during their conversation with the various young people. At around 2:41 William said to an athlete "I thought the Winter Olympics were amazing." He talked about it a bit more towards the end of the video.
Both of them are indeed great naturals at interacting with people.

I think something went wrong with my original post. Consider this the back-up...

This is a great story. Shows how William takes time with people and what a good memory he has!

And Diana was said to be 5'10 or 5'11 but I think Kate is 5'9, 5'10 at most. They both look great.

Not fond of Kates dress at the BBQ but it was nice seeing the couple dressed so casually and interacting with people.
Thanks for the pictures & videos.

It was stated on cable channel in the US on her wedding day, that HRH is 5'10." A few years back I had heard/read, PWoW stands about 6'2."

Plus let's keep in mind in these pics she's wearing probably 2-3 inch heels .....

The CTV reporter said in real life William and Kate are both tall and it's hard to really grasp that from pics

This Canadian site has a good collection of videos (links on right side of page), from speeches, to commentaries and crowd reactions. I especially love seeing crowd reactions...
