The Canadian Royal Tour

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
arrive in Canada
Thursday, June 30, 2011

Their first official Commonwealth country tour as husband and wife.  
Our future King and Queen.

July 1 - Canada Day

One of the biggest Canadian parties, is Canada Day on Parliament Hill.

The Queen

Last July 1, 2010 Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip partied with us.

The Queen of Canada in red and white on July 1.

The Queen loves coming to Canada.  She especially loves the West.
The Queen....she rocks!  

The Prince and Princess of Wales

In 1983 the Prince and Princess of Wales visited Canada for the first time.
Diana arrived and white.

As hard as I tried, I could not find a coloured pic of them arriving in Canada.

She wore our colours as often as she could.
Her birthday is - you got it - July 1.....she rocked too!

She loved wearing outfits with spots and favored red and white.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

So I am hoping that Kate does not disappoint. 
Dig out your red and white Kate, your subjects are watching!


I will be joining these parties

Pink Saturday at How Sweet The Sound

  3. What happy memories of your beloved Princess Di. And when you said "our future king and queen," it kind of hit me that they're not just beautiful awesome Prince William and Kate anymore - they're the future King and Queen!!! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Awesome post with lots of RED. Loved the pictures too!


  5. Happy Pink Saturday and a very Happy Canada Day, Diane.

    We Americans are blessed to have such incredible northern neighbors.

    I'm hoping Kate breaks out her red, too.

  6. What fun for this happy holiday weekend for both our countries. :) Happy red white and blue AND PINK Saturday.

    P.S. P.S. Amazon has got some interesting and wonderfully free Christian Kindle mystery books, romance novels, and general Christian encouragement resources along with patriotic praise and worship music mp3 downloads. I shared about it at today. :) Enjoy!

  7. Your country and city treated the royal couple very royally.

  8. Stopping over Via Pink Saturday... Loved getting a glimpse at your Holiday... and the Royals... Such lovely pictures and great Country Pride...And I second Beverly... : )

  9. Happy Pink Saturday Diane Sweetie and Happy Canadian Day as well. What fun that you shared these wonderful photos of not only the Queen in red, but loved the photos of Diane in red. I did not know that her birthday was July 1st as well.

    I love seeing Catherine in red. She looks beautiful in everything, but I do believe that red could very well be her signature color. Thank you for sharing sweet friend.

    Have a wonderful weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
