With his beautiful wife Kate Middleton taking pictures as keepsakes, the Duke of Cambridge tossed on his military pilot gear while delving into an exercise in a Sea King Helicopter above Dalvay Lake.
Prior to the waterbirding exercise, the royal newlyweds took time to meet with local chefs in the culinary station – with Kate getting adventurous while giving the local oysters a taste test.
Earlier Will and Kate also directed competing dragon boat teams in a race across Dalvay Lake – with Will’s squad ending up pulling off the victory before he offered his wife a consolation hug.
With another full day scheduled in Prince Edward Island, the busy couple will close out their Canadian duties with two days in Calgary before wrapping up the entire trip with another two day stop in Los Angeles, California.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed over to the Sainte-Justine University Hospital in Montreal on Saturday – where they were greeted by both fans and protestors, some of which held up signs with nasty messages such as “Royal Parasites! Go Home!”.
Explaining the anti-monarchy sentiments, one of the protestors told local press, “We think it’s a useless institution that has no place today. We are capable of governing ourselves without people who have the title of king by divine right. The idea that God made them king is a philosophy of the Middle Ages.”
As for their hospital visit, William and Kate toured the treatment center, with Kate lovingly sitting down to spend time with patients in the children’s cancer ward.
After spending the night sailing along the scenic St. Lawrence Seaway aboard a Canadian navy frigate, Prince William and Kate Middleton made their grand arrival in Quebec City yesterday.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge helped to plant the Eastern Hemlock tree at the 2011 Royal Tour Ceremonial Tree Planting – with Kate in a Catherine Walker frock as she dutifully manning the shovel as William watched on.
The royal couple also are lined up to meet Canadian war veterans and take part in a cooking workshop during the course of the day’s agenda.
Once finished up, Will and Kate then set off to the French-speaking Quebec province to “tour a flagship Montreal hospital dedicated to the care of mothers and children.”
Also in store for the newlyweds during their Quebec stop, reports tell that the couple will be attending “a workshop at a cookery school in Montreal, for which the couple will roll up their sleeves and cook with the students using local ingredients.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were cheered on by the large gathered crowd, with Miss Middleton’s hair swept up while clad in a purple v-neck Issa dress.
During the evening festivities, one of the performers, Newfoundland’s band Great Big Sea, took the stage and gave Will and Kate a shout-out as lead singer Alan Doyle told the crowd, “Put your hands up, put your hands up. We’re in the presence of royalty.”
With the royal newlyweds joining in on the clapping, the band delved into the tune “Lukey’s Boat” in a truly memorable Canada Day moment.
Will and Kate will tour various parts of Canada until July 8th, when they fly down to Los Angeles for a couple of days in Southern California.
The newly married, royal couple was greeted by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, John Baird and Mrs Marianne upon arrival.
Furthermore, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were presented with a brand new flag specially made for William.
The flag, for use when William is in Canada, was designed and made over a three-month period and it includes the familiar insignia that are on other royal standards, but also has William’s “W’ cypher at its center.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed primo seats as they watched the fourth round match between Andy Murray of Great Britain and Richard Gasquet of France.
Coming up later this week, Will and Kate will embark on their tour of North America, including stops in Canada and Los Angeles.
They’ll attend a trade meeting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, a polo match at the Santa Barbara Polo Club, and some Tinseltown fun at Sony Studios.
Spending the day saluting those risking their lives for the good of the kingdom, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, attended the Irish Guards Medal Parade in Windsor yesterday.
The newlyweds took to the Victoria Barracks to present service medals to members of the Irish Guards in celebration of the third annual Armed Forces Day.
Prince William, who happens to be the Colonel of the Irish Guards, and Kate also gave the special tributes of Elizabeth Crosses to the families of three members of the unit killed during the past six months of operations in Afghanistan.
Looking their best for the memorable occasion, William wore a black ceremonial uniform while the always-stylish Kate donned a black double-breasted coat with gold buttons topped off with a golden Irish shamrock brooch and matching hat.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are planning out the Canadian leg of their tour and are tacking on a trio of days in the Golden State.
William is looking forward to some polo action in Santa Barbara while he and Kate focus “on supporting British interest in California through the prism of their own interests.”
They’ll also visit downtown Los Angeles for a British Academy of Film and Television Arts black tie dinner and reception at the Belasco Theatre.
Out for yet another high-profile public appearance, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, attended the Order of the Garter Service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor today.
Looking elegant in a silver suit with a matching fascinator, Miss Middleton stood alongside the Duchess of Cornwall as the ladies watched on while Prince William and Prince Philip partook in the royal ceremony held at Windsor Castle.
During the festivities, Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers and Admiral Lord Boyce were invested in the castle’s Garter Throne Room before being “installed” at the service.
For those unfamiliar with the UK happenings, the Order of the Garter is the senior and oldest British Order of Chivalry, founded by Edward III in 1348. Membership in the order is limited to the sovereign, the Prince of Wales, and no more than twenty-four members.

The newlyweds took to the St. George’s Chapel venue for a church service put together as a toast to Philip’s commendable patriotism to Great Britain and the Queen.
Upon the conclusion of the ceremony, Catherine headed to the Grand Reception room of St. George’s Hall for canapé-and-drinks before she and William partook in a private lunch with the royal family.
During the course of the day, William also joined up with Prince Harry, as the royal brothers played in the Sentebale Cup at Coworth Park in Ascot.
Facing off against one another, Prince William was on the Tusk Trust team while Prince Harry offered his skills to the Sentebale side – with Will’s Tusk Trust squad emerging victorious.

The 29-year-old Duchess of Cambridge looked happy as can be as she watched William, dressed in the same red Irish Guards uniform he wore for their April 29th nuptials and bearskin hat, join his fellow guardsmen and cavalry in the procession.
For Kate’s procession ride, she shared a carriage with Prince Harry, mother-in-law Camilla, and Prince Andrew.
The annual ceremony is held to recognize the birthday of the monarch,though Queen Elizabeth turned 85 on April 21, the celebration is held in the summer, as the weather is better for outdoor events.

The royal couple reportedly had a well-deserved relaxing time, as a statement released by the palace told, “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have returned to the United Kingdom from their honeymoon in the Seychelles. The couple thoroughly enjoyed their time together, and they are grateful to the Seychelles government for their assistance in making the honeymoon such a memorable and special 10 days.”
The privileged pair bid goodbye to their private lap of luxury on Friday, as the head of Seychelles tourism board told the AP, “They left happy and clearly content with their stay.”
Next on the agenda for the newlyweds are birthday celebrations, one for grandmother Queen Elizabeth’s 85th birthday on June 11th, followed by a 90th birthday celebration for grandfather Prince Philip on June 12th.
Prince William and gorgeous bride Kate Middleton are spending their wedding weekend at Balmoral Castle in chilly Scotland – where Will’ s adored late mom, Diana, famously hated to be “dragged up” to – before the prince heads back to work this week as an RAF search-and-rescue pilot.
The couple won’t get away for their super-secret, two-week honeymoon for a while, palace officials said. The location guessing-game centered on either Germany, Jordan (where Kate spent time as a kid), and Kenya.
At the private reception at Buckingham Palace, the 28-year-old prince toasted his 29-year-old wife as “my rock,” The Times of London reported, a description of emotional security Diana once famously used on her butler.
Their first dance was to a rendition of Elton John’s “Your Song” – he performed at Diana’s funeral – and they will likely set up house in Diana’s one-time apartment in Kensington Palace.
Wills and Kate will get dough from the Crown Estate, reports said – meaning they’ll be able to set up their own court, rather than relying on money from Prince Charles.
At the reception, Prince Charles called his new daughter-in-law William’s “other half” and gushed that he was “incredibly happy” for his oldest son.
History was made yesterday as Catherine Middleton and Prince William were married at Westminster Abbey in London. In case you missed it or just want to relive the fairy tale, don’t worry, we have the full coverage for you.
Among the 1,900 guests were celebrities David Beckham and Elton John, who joined royalty from Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East to witness the nuptials. The AP reports an estimated 2 billion people worldwide watched the ceremony.
The rest of the wedding party, including the Queen, the Middleton family, and Prince Charles and Camilla Bowles watch on as the Royal Air Force and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flew over the celebratory crowd.
Prior to the highly anticipated kiss, Kate arrived at the church in a stunning Sarah Burton (at Alexander McQueen) gown — complete with lace sleeves with a plunging neckline and full veil. She entered the Abbey led by her father, while sister and maid of honor Pippa held her train. The bride looked gorgeous and as always smiling for the crowds.
Take a look at the many pictures from the ceremony.
From Margaret Thatcher, to Earl Spencer and Victoria and David Beckham, the 1900 person guest list is a long one.
Among the guests will be a great number of Prince William’s and Kate Middleton’s friends from St. Andrew’s University.
The Royal Wedding, which has been anticipated for months now, will take place on Friday April 29 at Westminster Abbey in London.
While this will be a big wedding, there are a number of famous celebrities that were not invited such as Sir Paul McCartney, J.K. Rowling, and Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama were not invited either.
Debenhams created the sparkler in response to what they say was ‘overwhelming’ customer demand for an homage to the royal ring.
And now that the ring has hit the shelves, staff say they cannot restock fast enough, with unprecedented sales meaning that the ring is set to become Debenhams’ fastest ever selling piece of jewellery.
Vicky Hewitt, spokesperson for the store said: ‘It’s clear that women have been captivated by the romance of the occasion.
‘They want the chance to look like a princess too – for a fraction of the price.’
But yesterday Prince William and his bride-to-be Kate Middleton were very much the centre of attention as they made a nostalgic trip back to St Andrews University for their second public engagement together.
It was all a world away from when the royal couple met in the idyllic Scottish town ten years ago.
And, showing how far she has come, Kate hinted at her dreams of starting a family. Check out how their romance started.
Royal wedding dress watchers now have an added twist to their attempts to discover Kate Middleton’s wedding dress designer—she’s going to wear two of them. Bruce Oldfield is also probably not designing either of them.
By going on a publicity spree and chatting up a storm, Bruce has just about confirmed he won’t be taking credit for the dress. He made an appearance on Good Morning America, talking about Kate’s dress and what he thinks it’ll look like. Bruce’s prediction is Kate will wear not one, but two dresses for the wedding: a conservative one for the walk down the aisle, then a flashier more daring one for the reception and party. He says:
I’m sure the dress is going to be modest in terms of coverage. It has to be, you know? It will have sleeves, it has to have sleeves. You can’t walk down Westminster Abbey in a strapless dress — it just won’t happen. And it has to suit the grandeur of the aisle — it’s enormous.
Bruce also thinks a veil will be part of her ensemble, given how poignant Diana’s was. What do you think, will Bruce’s predictions come true?
