When do the Cambridges Land in Canada? #RoyalVisitCanada!

Saturday, September 24, 2016

I know you woke up this morning and the first thing that crossed your mind was...when do the Cambridges land in Canada?! September slipped by in blink and as hard as it is for me to believe, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kick off what will doubtless be a second wildly successful tour this afternoon.



Happily for those of us who have a Saturday to-do list, William, Kate, George, and Charlotte, et al. don't touchdown until this afternoon. The family lands in Victoria at 4pmPST (midnight London, 1am Paris) and will be greeted at the airport with an administrative welcome. They will proceed from the airport to Government House to deposit the little ones, before moving to the evening's festivities, including the official welcome ceremony.  The Canadian Government's dance card looks like this:



So, you have a few hours to kick around before the action gets going. I'm off to study Wills, Trusts, and Estates. See you this evening!

  2. Since I live 3 blocks from the BC Legislature Buildings, I'm going to have to find an alternate route for my walk to downtown this afternoon. Heavy sigh.

  3. I wonder if they fly with private plane or commercial? Must be hard flying with two toddlers, getting them to sleep etc. Wonder how they manage.

    2. The jetlag will surely be tough for the children. Nqptime, bedtime, everything is different. Already difficult for adults. Hopefully they'll adjust to it over the next days at Government House so that they are fine for the playdate next week :)

  4. Do you know if this will be live streamed online anywhere?! I'd love to watch it as it is happening rather than just see it through photographs.

  5. You might find that by following a local news station or a national news agency. Many do that here in the States. I assume Canada does as well.

  7. cbcNews.ca should have excellent coverage. They're promoting the programming as Will & Kate & the kids. Starting at 630 local time.

  8. Yay, I am so excited! But not sure whether I will stay awake until 1am... we shall see.

    Do you think that Will or Kate will carry George/Charlotte when getting off the plane? Kate could do a cute mother-daughter-matchy-matchy-outfit ;)

    The time chamge is gonna kill me ugh. But I am glad it will be a lot easier for you than the Down Under tour Jane :)

    The big question: what will she wear? Erdem? McQueen? Anything else? Red or another colour? I am so excited! (And trying to stay awake for as long as posdible lol)
