Stop your FCC people from insisting on editing the swear words and things would be fine.
Kate and William head to Quebec City - Canada - CBC News
Wills and Kate come to Quebec
What a delight to see them working as such an effective team. They seem to be really enjoying each experience and especially the one at the culinary school. French-Canadian cooking at its finest .
This is one job where husband and wife must work as a well coordinated team or it shows . That is a LOT of togetherness. Good thing they have a long term relationship to rely on ......even as newly weds.
So far they are excelling in all areas. Poise, confidence but not overly so, genuinely interested and enjoying themselves. A new era of Canadian/ Royal relationship is being born. a much more personal one.
I am a natural born canadian, and I can assure everyone these two nice people
are not foreigners, they are one of us, and I embrace them.
When someone good comes to visit my country, I welcome them with open arms, I will not
be rude and ignorant and show anyone poor manners
Very well said!!! You bring a great perspective when you say" they are not "foreigners". Far too often we as a people are too divisive in our judgements and alienate or group others into certain "brands" . the word "foreigners" belongs in the past. In this highly integrated world , we are all citizens of the planet. and even the universe. There is no call for such negative terminology. I congratulate you for making a remark that is highly meaningful in today's society. When we travel......do we like to be called "foreigners" or do we prefer tourists , or even guests of the place we visit??
Words, language are our main tools. They differentiate us from the grunts and other sounds of the wildlife we share this planet with. We need to be responsible in how we use these tools.
Thanks for a thought provoking post .......and very well stated.
Have a wonderful weekend. Hope the weather on the Island is better and more consistent than on the mainland.
a bit off topic, but what is the royal families last name? Buckinham?
Members of The Royal Family of Canada do not have surnames.
For the purposes of signatures and the administration of services, members of the Royal Family tend to use the name of whatever royal house they belong to. For all members of the current Royal Family, this is "Windsor" (as Her Majesty and most of her direct heirs are members of the House of Windsor). Members of the Royal Family used to belong to the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (and therefore signed with that name), until it was changed to the English "Windsor" by His Late Majesty George V, King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, due to anti-German sentiment at the time.
