The Duke and Duchess kicked off their Royal Tour on June 30 in Ottawa and it was incredibly reminiscent of the Princess Diana-mania during her first tour in 1983 — but this couple can’t keep their hands off each other!
Prince William and Kate Middleton are displaying their love to the world! While in Canada Kate has managed to look flawless, and when she stepped out on July 1 in a bright red fascinator, gorgeous white dress with matching red heels — William couldn’t help but put his hands on Kate’s back to guide her along! Luckily Prince William is an incredibly confident hubby because his wife Kate is snagging the spotlight once again. The newlyweds were grinning from ear-to-ear as they went on a “walkabout” in the center of Ottawa yesterday and they were more than well received. Thousands of excited onlookers chanted Kate’s name screaming: “Kate, Kate Kate. We want Kate!”
This 11-day tour of Canada is said to be the defining moment of Kate’s life as a royal. When Princess Diana and Prince Charles went to Australia in 1983 — her very first royal tour, her every move was under scrutiny and the world fell in love with the “People’s Princess.”
Kate, who opted not to bring a lady-in-waiting with her on the tour, managed to change into three fashionable little numbers — all without the help of a stylist. After visiting the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the couple headed to Ottawa’s Rideau Hall for a welcome barbeque — but it got rained out!
The Duke and Duchess along with the 120 other guests were forced to move indoors and it caused a reported “nervous silence” among the attendees — but William managed to quell the group by joking: “Talk among yourselves.” Everyone broke out into laughter.
William and Kate enjoyed classic Canadian dishes like Yukon Arctic Char Caviar, Winnipeg smoked Goldeye and Prince Edward Island cheddar parfait.
It was only 28 years ago that the world fell in love with Princess Diana and the happy couple will remember William’s mother on July 1 as they celebrate Canada Day along with William’s late mother’s 50th birthday.
William and Kate have a big day ahead of them. They are slated to attend a Canadian Citizenship Ceremony at the Canadian Museum of Civilization before the main event which is the Canada Day Parliament Hill Noon Show. There will be a 21-gun salute and a fly past by the Canadian Forces. But the highlight will definitely be 11-year-old Maria Aragon, who will sing the national anthem.
