"Angel in the Crowd" { The Royals in Canada, Rideau Hall • June 2011 }

This will certainly be a Canada day to remember like no other. Certainly Ottawa’s busiest weekend of the year with tourists from all of the world touching down on Canada’s capital; this one’s going to be a little bigger. Approximately 1300 more reporters to start. I attended the official welcome at Rideau Hall held between 1pm-4pm on June 30, 2011. After 4pm the public were kindly encouraged to leave as Dutch William and Duchess Kate would be attending dinner and a private Barbeque for Youth. Once Dutch William got to the microphone and his first words “en francais” were spoken, the crowd broke out in spontaneous applause to his salute to our bilingual nation. Stephen Harper’s speech followed. He didn’t quite get the same reception as Dutch William to say the least! Can’t he get a speech therapist to jazz up the tonation in his voice?

This is a short welcome back. I will be adding more of my pictures from the crowd and their grandiose hats ~ a shout out to the wild hats worn week ago by guests at the Royal Wedding in London, England. I’m off now to  celebrate Canada day and see what Canadian treasures, magic and fun I can find. And will I run into Dutch William and Kate?
