And if I understand from reading the Royal Tour article correctly, Diamond gets to go to Disneyland too! How wonderful! I shared the letter with my mom- we both are in tears!

The pictures from Calgary are wonderful. I wasn't sure how they'd both look in stetsons but they pulled it off really well. Their entire outfits looked natural and quite cute.

I also thought that the visit to Slave Lake was a great gesture on their part. Very often even terrible incidents like the wildfires that ravaged that town tend to get forgotten with time or at least disappear from the public's attention when they're no longer front page news. William and Kate's visit reminded us of the catastrophe that took place only a couple of months ago and the toll it took on the lives of its people. The residents clearly appreciated and were uplifted by this visit and felt that they hadn't been forgotten. The royal couple had a private meeting with them as well.

This reminds me of the Queen Elizabeth's visit in 2005, when she visited the families of the four Mounties who had been killed just a few months earlier. She attended a public ceremony to honour the victims and then met privately with their families. Therefore William and Kate's visit to Slave Lake comes as no surprise to me and I rather expected it. This is the sort of thing the royal family always does, not just in Canada but at home and elsewhere in the Commonwealth.

That looks like a lovely place to stay. It has also become somewhat of a tradition for members of the royal family to stay at such places during their visits to Alberta.

William's great-grandparents stayed at Jasper Park Lodge in 1939 (a beautiful photo of the royal couple)


I loved William's speech from last night! Here's the

And of course, this was my favourite part:

In 1939, my great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, said of her first Tour of Canada with her husband, King George VI: `Canada made us`. Catherine and I now know very well what she meant.


Canada has far surpassed all that we were promised. Our promise to Canada is that we shall return.

Hello, my first post here. I wanted to say how much I enjoyed this tour and I think they couldn't have chosen a better country for their first official tour. Beautiful country and such a warm and welcoming people.

I have question, weren't they supposed to attend a black tie event tonight?

The BMO event was the one where William made the speech promising to return to Canada.
Video from the speeches: CBC.ca Player
Photo:Photo from Reuters Pictures ther are many more on The Canadian Heritage's flickr account and on Getty Images
There is more footage from inside the National showed it but it seems none of the agencies have had a chance to upload it yet.

There was no black tie event,aliela. The only one I know of will be the Bafta's in LA on Saturday.

Going to bed now see you all bright and early tomorrow morning for the end of this tour.

I was going to post this video. Great speeches, the PM's was funny and of course William and Kate look really good.

The PM announced the Government of Canada's gift to the couple, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Parks Canada Youth Ambassadors Program which marks the 100 years of Parks Canada.

I have to add that I loved the opening of William's speech and the laugh!

Some great quotes also from the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, about her connection and fondness for Canada (both from the PM and the Duke)

Here's a great photo of William taking on the reins.

Bless her heart, she's had two pictures taken from behind that are a little embarrassing (well, they would be if it was me). I wonder if she'll follow her deceased mother in law and have weights added to the hems of her dresses/skirts.
