On Thursday the royals arrived in Ottawa, and despite not having fully recovered from my cold, I was determined to get a closer look. I’ve had a crush on William since I was about fourteen, so it was quite lovely to see him up close. I got to the war memorial a good two hours before their arrival, ate the salad I had brought and proceeded to wait. As moments like these always offer, I soon made friends with a girl standing near me, and we proceeded to play scrabble on her iphone for well over an hour to pass the time.
When Will & Kate did arrive, it was quite a thrill, she looked beautiful, he looked gracious. It was, all in all, well worth the wait.
