Royally Amazed!

As most of the world is aware, the Royal couple, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Will & Kate, are on a whirl wind tour!  Over the last 2 days, we have had the honour of having them tour our city!
And I knew this was my chance (maybe my only ever), that I would get to see them in ‘real’ life!  So I dragged my 2 oldest kids out of bed at 5:45am, and met up with some fabulous friends downtown, so that we could catch a glimpse of Will & Kate as they kicked off our Stampede Parade!
I was hoping we’d get to see them in a carriage of some sort, but they were in a black sedan, and were driving by pretty fast!  Literally, if you blinked you would have missed it!  I looked up, and there was Kate waving!
So fantastic!!!
While I did not capture them very well on my camera, my friend Lori took these shots!  A-maze-ing!!
Quick!  Look up!  Here they come!



So fast, but so worth it!  For me, it was a moment of a lifetime!  Yeehaw!

  1. She was looking right at you .. it’s too bad they went through so quickly albeit you were lucky, some people totally missed it.

  2. you’re so lucky. i’m hoping they do a tour of australia/new zealand next. Will toured the earthquake devastation in christchurch and the flooding in queensland, au a month or so before their wedding. i hope he returns, with kate, and they take a tour of sydney. i will totally. get. off. work.

  4. Oh my gosh you lucky girl!!! I would’ve LOVED to catch them even for a second. I couldn’t believe that yesterday when I was flying from London to San Diego, they were flying (commercial) from LA to London! If only we changed our flight, we might’ve seen them at LAX! I am a little too obsessed with them…haha
