The Duke later joked he had felt a little underdressed compared to their traditional costumes, saying: “I was very impressed. Next time we should turn up in a bit more of a ceremonial costume.”The royal couple then spoke with local dignitaries, asking them about their roles in Victoria and praising the event and the “super clean” red carpet.The Duchess also shared her excitement at being there, saying: “Both of us love mountains and there seems to be a lot of them here. We can’t wait to explore. There is a lot to do in a short period of time.” The Duke of Cambridge and Prince George Credit:Chris Jackson/Getty Images Proclaiming their stay at Government House “perfect”, she answered questions about her children, disclosing they had been “super excited about the fact they were going to sleep on a plane”.Following speeches and a performance from the Victoria Children’s Choir, she accepted flowers from 13-year-old Victoria Foster, who had been chosen by charity Children’s Wish, asking her about her life and school.”She also talked a little bit about her children,” said Victoria. “She said she was hoping they were asleep right now.”Monique Girard, a 23-year-old full-time mother originally from South Africa, said the Duchess had offered her some advice for her six-month-old daughter, Scarlett, whom she was carrying in a sling.

The warm welcome that you gave us at that important moment in our lives meant a lot to us, and we have never forgotten it. “That is why we are so pleased that George and Charlotte can be with us in Canada this time round, beginning their own lifetime of friendship with this wonderful country.” They may be royalty, but it appears even Prince George and Princess Charlotte are not immune to the prospect of a little mischief.The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have spoken of their excited children during the first day of their tour to Canada, joking they hoped the youngsters were not “tearing up Government House” in their absence.The Duchess said they had been “super excited” about their trip on an aeroplane together, as she shared parenting advice with other mothers who had turned out to see the event. Aurora Vandall, a 36-year-old mother of a nine-month-old from Victoria, said she had spoken to the Duke to welcome him to Canada.”He said, ‘I hope the children aren’t tearing up Government House right now’,” she disclosed. “She asked me about Scarlett and how old she was. When I said six months, she said that after this stage it will get easier. It will get better.”It was so nice.” Loreen Topping added: “She [the duchess] told me she wished she had brought Prince George down tonight because he would have loved all the lights.” She later said they had enjoyed a “very good tea” before dropping off to sleep.The first official event of the Canadian royal tour was something of a family affair altogether.Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister, used his speech to highlight the family feel of the trip, the first overseas tour for the family as a foursome.”As any parent who has travelled with children knows, it’s a whole different experience when you bring your children with you,” he said, to cheers.

The red carpet event saw the Duke and Duchess greet veterans, lay a wreath at the Cenotaph and enjoy a performance by the Lekwungen Traditional Dancers, from the Songhees Nation, and Esquimalt Singers and Dancers, from the Esquimalt Nation.

china, the worst country in the world*, recently sentenced a 46-year-old woman one year in a labor camp for a sarcastic tweet. or as they call it “disturbing social stability.”back in october, cheng jianping under the twitter wangyi09, rt’d a post from her fiance hua chunhu with a few words of editorializing. the post mocked chinese protesters who smashed japanese products during a recent demonstration.eleven days later, on the day the couple planned to marry, ha chunchi was taken away by police from his office. he was released five days later, only to find that cheng was missing. family members told him the police had taken her away the same day they came for him. she was sentenced to a year in the henan province labor camp.in her twitter feed, cheng has also supported imprisoned nobel peace prize laureate liu xiaobo.via cnn* there are certainly more dangerous totalitarian regimes out there, but china is the only one who is a true emerging super power. one which has a near-unbreakable symbiotic economic relationship with the west. one which national american politicians refuse to publicly condemn due to the sheer amount of economic debt china holds. if china wants to be a true global player, they are going to have to break away from their backwater mental shackles and grow up. this is some unnecessary third-world stuff.
