I love royalty. I love to read about them and see how they dress and mix with public. Maybe that's all part of me being British. That being said, it's not just British Royalty, I also enjoy reading and keeping up with some European Royalty too - it's just so fascinating! However, as much as I adore William & Kate, I would not stand out for hours and hours to see them walk by. They arrived in Ottawa today as part of their 10-day visit to Canada and placed a wreath and bouquet at the War Memorial. Lilah and I took a little bike ride downtown about half an hour after their visit was over, to check out the craziness! I had to laugh at Lilah, after a few minutes of standing staring at the motionless guard, she turned to me and asked: "Is he just pretend?" In the last photo below of her standing next to the guard, the way she is holding her dress leads me to believe she was feeling a wee tad nervous standing next to him! Also, when we got back home she was telling her Baba all about our time and very randomly announced: "We saw these guards, and they were keeping stuff safe!" She is just too cute and funny!
