I had a chance to get a glimpse of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on Sunday. Their tour in BC began Sept 24th and will be traveling with their children until Oct.1.
On my way back from home from a late lunch, I made it just in time to see the duke and duchess pull up at the new Telus Garden building downtown to attend Young Vancouver Reception.
The royal couple was escorted by dozens of police on motorcycles and men with rifles in tinted SUV’s. One funny moment was when a local police almost stalled in the busy intersection but kept cool and kept strolling.
It was quite an eventful Sunday afternoon, as there were blocks of people gathering on the side street just to get a glimpse. What made it even more enjoyable was Telus reps handing out free tshirts and hats because I love perks.
