The Royal Buzz

Victoria is eagerly awaiting the arrival of their Royal Highness’s, William, the Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, the Dutchess of Cambridge – fondly known as Kate and William. The royal progeny, Prince George of Cambridge, and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge will accompany their parents – and undoubtedly steal much of the spotlight.

William and Kate married on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey. Prince George, was born on 22 July 2013, and Princess Charlotte on 2 May 2015. Various media sources have reported that a third royal offspring is in the plan. Incidentally, Kate and William will have a night away from the kids when they visit Vancouver – just coincidence, I’m sure.

They royal family and entourage arrive tomorrow (Saturday, Sept 24) at the airport via military helicopter. The motorcade will proceed to Government House where the family will check in – probably no credit card will be required, but there may be a damage deposit required, what  with the young prince roaming around among  all those expensive and breakable trinkets.   T

The royal’s public debut in Victoria will begin  tomorrow afternoon  at the Legislature at 5:00 pm. Thirty to forty thousand royal watchers are expected to swarm the legislature lawns and inner harbor. Setup crews and media outlets have been out in full  force over the past couple of days. Here are a few photos of the pre-visit preparations taken last night and this afternoon.

  2. We don’t have royals in the U.S.A., but I have always followed them, especially Prince William and Princess Kate, and the children. Keep Jan-Louise and I posted on their movements. I still miss Princess Diana. Prince Willam and Prince Harry follow in her footsteps. Thank heavens. 😉

  3. nice piece of writing, John
