Royal Slapshot

Well...not really. But he tried. Prince William and Catherine spent the day in the Northwest Territories yesterday. In the capital, there was a walkabout at Somba K'e Civic Park and they attended a youth parliament session. Then they hopped on a float plane to Blachford Lake where they toured the Dechinta Centre for Research and Learning, called a “bush university”, which offers northern aboriginal studies into the curriculum alongside conventional academic approach all on a wilderness campus. Full Story

Will trash-talks!

Found them! The trash-talking Prince William shots. Some agencies are willing to go with them...conveniently after my last post – yay! As you can see, the Prince is throwing down with his wife in the dragon boat during their race. Word is they’re very competitive. And, well, it shows. Today in Yellowknife, they’re supposed to play street hockey. Full Story

Am attaching more photos of Prince William and Catherine yesterday in PEI during their dragon boat competition. Remember when I said they were trash-talking? Well, in these photos, it’s more like he was trash-talking her. And then, as you know, at the end of it, they hugged Full Story

A Royal Hug!

They’re hugging!!! Did you watch the Royal Dragon Boat Race? Prince William and Catherine competed against each other in a dragon boat race in PEI today after Will landed a rescue helicopter. As they were racing, they were kinda trash-talking each other. Not like civilian style, of course, but in the classiest way possible. Full Story

The Cambridges in Canada

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 4, 2011 08:32:57 July 4, 2011 08:32:57

It was such a full schedule, I can barely keep track of all their activities since I last wrote about them on Friday. Have decided then to cover the Royal Tour in Canada by Kate’s outfits. The last outfit posted was the white dress with the maple leaf red hat. After that they attended a Canada Day fireworks show and concert (in purple), they planted a tree (in grey) close to where Charles and Diana planted one many years before (and Will displayed some restrained emotion while reading the plaque), they visited with sick children at Sainte-Justine University Hospital in Montreal (still in grey), they also attended a cooking class and wore chef’s smocks, then it was off to Quebec City (in blue) where they spent time with at-risk youth, and somewhere in there they found time for a rowboat ride and a few hours of romantic quiet time on a lake. Full Story

Kate’s Maple Leaf

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 1, 2011 08:47:21 July 1, 2011 08:47:21

Prince William and Catherine have just departed a citizenship ceremony today, the first stop on their Canada Day itinerary. She wore a Maple Leaf broach on her left side. Apparently this was a loaner from the Queen. Can you see the maple leaves in her hat? I’m wondering if that might not be a liiiiiiiiiittle bit of overkill. Full Story

Will & Kate & the youth

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 1, 2011 07:35:34 July 1, 2011 07:35:34

The final stop on the first day of the Royal Tour in Canada was a bbq reception to celebrate youth. Both William and Catherine made a wardrobe change – her third of the day. This time it was an Issa wrap dress with a bird pattern, sheer stockings, and slingback wedges. I can’t say I love anything about this ensemble. Full Story

Will & Kate in Canada:2 changes, 2 Cdn designers..

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 30, 2011 12:17:00 June 30, 2011 12:17:00

So far. When Princess Catherine got on the plane for Canada this morning from London, she was wearing a Smythe blazer, Canadian brand. When she arrived in Ottawa she wore Erdem, another Canadian designer. So far she’s pimping out the Maple Leaf. Word up. Needless to say, Smythe is probably now already sold out of that jacket. Full Story

Couples doppelganging

When you go into the database of a photo agency, the pictures come up slightly bigger than thumbnail size. I also have bad eyes so often I either can’t make out who it is at first glance or I get it completely wrong. Today I went into the agency and took a quick look at these shots and wondered to myself how I could have possibly missed the news that Kristen Stewart is dating Scott Speedman. Full Story

Ellen Page, Royal Watcher?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 29, 2011 09:53:00 June 29, 2011 09:53:00

Doubtful...or possible? The Royal Couple will be in Quebec, stopping for a short few hours in Montreal on July 2nd. They’ll visit with young cancer patients at Saint-Justine Hospital and then hang out with some novice chefs at a cooking class. Those kids have the honour of serving dinner to Will and Kate that night. Full Story
