Maybe they didnt even SEE the "crowd"; and if you read some of the posts on this thread, interest in Aus is so so small, its amazing that anyone, inc the media turned up.

Just a practical perspective.
That is SO TRUE! When I watched the video, it was clear that the "crowd" was so far away that there is no way the royals could have noticed them or expected anyone without a zoom lens to see them. No one was slighted!

But we now know that there is definitely one Australian who is excited about the visit!

I must watch the "Sunrise" coverage of the rest of the tour. It's great fun.
Ah, if that is the case then I do stand corrected. Far be it from me to expect them to wave while quickly transiting if there really wasn't anyone around. But if there was any media, a quick wave might have sufficed in acknowledgement. But I'm sure that if you were on the tarmac, Roslyn, you'd have been jumping up and down to attract their attention for sure!

I noticed in some other pics as well - he sure was interested in what was going on around him! I do believe he is going to be quite a handful - his Uncle Harry will love it!

Kate was struggling there, trying to keep her hat on in the wind, holding George and trying to hold onto the handrail all at the same time. George looked as if he was about to launch himself out of her arms at one point!

Kate's wearing the Queen's NZ fern brooch too!

What a good boy! He could have so easily been crying or fretful- that's how I feel when I get off a long-haul flight.

So at this point in time, George and William have opposite hair (top/sides). Someone combed George's up into a bit of a peak - too cute.

Yeah, she really was struggling on the way down. Maybe William should have taken George until they got down the stairs. She looks great though. I really love her outfit. I also love George's outfit...it's adorable.
