Habs, I'm glad it sounds like it all went well w/your friend's parents and their meeting w/TRH. :)

For those following along up here in Canada, everything in Calgary's scheduled to kick off around 6pm EST. Can't wait!!

BTW: The boys at TomandLorenzo.com have been following HRH's fashions as well (http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/2011/07/bill-and-cathy-cambridges-canadian-adventure-day-1.html). Sometimes I agree with them, sometimes they're full of crap, but it's a fun perspective. Enjoy! :)

Bill and Cathy Cambridge :lol:

Will and Kate are in Calgary

Story about the little girl with cancer who presented the flowers. She sent a hand written letter to Make a Wish asking to meet Kate.

I'm so glad she brought something to wear that wasn't cream, taupe or navy! I understand why one would do this, but it would get boring after 2 weeks of the same colors. Anyway, I really like her yellow dress, although I think it could be just a touch brighter. It's got a 40's vibe to it, yet doesn't look outdated.

OMG, watching that sweet girl hug HRH (http://www.cbc.ca/video/#/News/Special_Coverage/William_and_Kate/1998799487/ID=2045827865) and then and scurry off without giving her the flowers was adorable and heartbreaking both at the same time! I'm glad she got her wish. :)

HRH had a bit of a problem with her skirt in the wind, but classy gal she is, she handled it beautifully.

ETA: Ok, just read the full letter from the story above = :wuzrobbed

ETA x 2 = LIVE VIDEO! (http://cpac.ca/forms/index.asp?dsp=template&act=view3&template_id=46&hl=e) How friggin' cute are they in their jeans and cowboy hats???? :swoon:

I am not a fan of the crease (fold? I never remember which is the brim...) on will's hat! I would try to get that reshape! Maybe Kate's too but it is harder to see...

Sweet that the little girl.was able to meet them.

Harper talks way too fast. :yikes:

William is giving his final address. Lordy, you can't see his face, he's a big talking hat! Just like Granny! :lol:

Dear Canada: The French translator people on CPAC are kinda scary! :wideeyes:

Diamond also wrote a letter - to the Duchess, from her hospital bed.

"I was named after Princess Diana. My mommy memory is in heaven with her," she wrote. "I watched you get married from my bed. My favourite princess is Aurora, who is yours? I would really like to meet you. Do you want to meet me too?"

I've got tears in my eyes after reading that. So happy that not only Children's Wish was able to fulfill her wish, but that Kate said yes. How could she not after seeing that little girl's face?

We were all laughing here though watching the encounter on CPAC, as Diamond literally flew into Kate's arms before Kate really had a chance to crouch down to her level. :) Then when William tried to talk to her, she really didn't seem to want to have anything to do w/him. :D

Stage Four Sarcoma...Damn. :(

Telegraph ~ Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal tour of Canada and US: couple go cowboy for Calgary Stampede rodeo (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/prince-william/8624763/Prince-William-and-Kate-Middletons-royal-tour-of-Canada-and-US-couple-go-cowboy-for-Calgary-Stampede-rodeo.html)


The Duchess bit her lip as Scott Schniffer, 31, a former Canadian champion, stayed on for eight seconds before being thrown. "Oh my God! Oh my!" she said.

Then, as Mr Schniffer climbed out of the ring, the Duchess admired his leather chaps and giggled to her husband: "We should get you in a pair of these.”

Naughty girl that Kate. :D ;) :D

I'd support that. Will looks quite nice as a cowboy. If he keeps this look, I can put him back on the top of the "better looking brother list".
He looks as good as I remember him looking when he appeared in teen magazines.

I liked this quip"

At one point Stephen Harper, the Canadian Prime Minister, turned to the Duke and asked: “What do we have to do to get you to do this?” The Duke replied: "You'll have to go first!"

And it's over!!!

At least the Canadian Tour is over. Sigh...That went by far too fast. Loved it all and so proud of them. A complete and total Triumph!!

For our Cdn Members, I caught a promo for tonight's Connect w/Mark Kelley on CBC News Network about 20 minutes ago and he's going to be talking to little Diamond who stole so many hearts at the Calgary Airport yesterday.

Just giving a heads up for those who would like to catch this. I'll be watching *and* burning to DVD.

Fare Thee Well Your Royal Highnesses and come back again!! Soon!! :)
