It sounds like the reporter was confused (unless both Jessica and Tessa had a chance to meet the royals in Ottawa).

Tessa was in a news clip meeting William, so she definitely spoke to him. Not sure if Scott was there too; maybe he had a commitment elsewhere.

Both Tessa and Scott had dinner with the Queen last year, so they've had a royal experience already. :D

i certainly didnt say they havent met the royals. im just saying that with them being the olympic champs, they should get priority when it comes to events like that, not the lower ranked skaters.

The reporter who said it was Jessica was the former editor of Hello Magazine Canada. She messed up stuff about Kate's tiara during the Royal wedding so I'm not surprised that she would mess up the name of a figure skater.

Ahhh. And now the error (and elaboration of William's comments, because he didn't have that much to say to Tessa in the video clip) makes a bit more sense...

I agree. It sounded like her and looked like her from the back. And besides, how many female Olympic ice dancers were at the 2010 games? It's either her or Vanessa Crone, and that definately wasn't Crone.

Considering the media has reiterated (probably on the basis of that clip, granted) that Tessa Virtue was in attendance, and both her voice and hairstyle there are fairly recognizable, I'm not sure why there's any question of the Olympic ice dancer's identity. :confused:

The only actual question is if she attended solo or not (and I think it's quite possible that only she may have been invited, given the individual honors she's received and the emphasis often placed on her position as an active student athlete), and for that we'll still need some sort of acknowledgment of this event from Skate Canada or another skating outlet. Last year's state dinner was certainly discussed and made for a perfectly entertaining write-up, so it might be nice to hear something about this so we're not reliant on iffy general press reports...

From Universal Sports (July 2): http://www.universalsports.com/news-blogs/article/newsid=540082.html

The notable portion of this video (which you can view below) begins around the 2:35 mark, when William gets into a conversation with Olympic ice dancing champion Tessa Virtue. During said conversation, William explains that he was watching the Vancouver Games "nearly every night at home." Then, at the 3:23 mark, while discussing Alpine skiing, he says, "There was an American, Lindsey..."

[There's a pause here, as we see him attempt to conjure the name from the recesses of his cranium]

Come on William, you can do this...
:lol:

The official youth BBQ picture can be found here (http://www.gg.ca/gallery.aspx?id=10543). I believe Tessa Virtue is in the right upper hand corner.

not related to the Tessa/Kate topic but IMO this (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=192925630753002&set=a.192446417467590.45204.100001066989562&type=1&theater) is a great photo :)

LOL William's clearly not a figure skating fan. It's quite amusing to watch someone who is a huge celebrity in our little world meet a global celebrity.
