Notice on the group pic how her head is kind of tilting over like the leaning tower of Pisa?  A hat/headpiece/fascinator like that must make chiropractors very happy!

It is always a kick when the Royals visit from across the pond. One of the last times the Queen (long may she reign) was  in Calgary was right after the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. She was staying at the hotel across from where I was working at the time. I was always thrilled...actually...I had goosebumps...when I would look at the hotel and see her flag flying over the hotel stating she was in residence. 

Congrats to Winnipeg for hosting Edward and Sophie.

Take care,

Your fellow Canadian and Alberta neighbor,

Louise

Unfortunately Sophie did not accompany Edward. 

I know what you mean about the thrill of royals visiting.  When the Queen was here last, on the jubilee tour, I was such a dork I took a picture of the standard flying as soon as she entered the hotel.

Just out of interest... does anyone know whether the privy purse foots the bill for Louise's security when she is at school or does the government?


I only ask, because we have been told that she is a private individual rather than a Princess!!!!!

She may not receive a personal protection officer.  When she is with her parents, who, as working members of the royal family, she comes under their protection, but because she is not styled as HRH (although legally entitled to it), she may not have a PPO.  The PPOs are largely limited to the HRHs and Her Majesty --The Queen and Philip  - the three sons as well as the spouses of the two sons,  Anne (but probably not her husband unless he is with her); the Duke and duchess of Kent (even though the duchess no longer carries out duties, she still goes outside), the duke and duchess of Gloucester and Princess Alexandra.  The four royal grandchildren also have their own PPOs   The Michaels certainly have police protection at their home, but am not sure if they have an official PPO.  Louise and her brother are being raised outside the public llife and will not carry out duties, etc.  Anne's children did not have security when they went to school as they are not royal
