The Royal Couple Board an RCAF Aircraft

This from the Daily Telegraph:

"The couple will leave London this morning on a Royal Canadian Air Force aircraft which will fly them all over Canada, as the Commonwealth’s largest realm traditionally pays the travel costs for visiting members of what is also the Canadian Royal family."

The Daily Mail said much the same thing. Although we are not there yet, this is music to my ears.

Bit by bit, appointment by appointment, symbol by symbol, visit by vist, the prime minister is busy remaking Canada in the image of its founders. He is restoring and reinforcing the symbols and traditions and very identity of the country at every opportunity. It is hard to imagine the navy and air force escaping with anything less than its rightful honour and heritage.


  1. Even more surprising, this from today:

    "When William and Kate boarded a Royal Canadian Air Force plane in London for the flight to Ottawa, the Duchess was wearing a navy blazer from Canadian label Smythe over a dress by French designer Roland Mouret."

  2. Sounds like a copy and paste job. Makes me happy to see it in the Canadian Press all the same.

  3. It doesn't look like a copy and paste job to me. The text is completely different.

  4. And then this, from the Toronto Sun:

    "It is, of course, slightly different for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who were pictured setting off for Canada this morning on a Royal Canadian Air Force plane, clad in matching navy suits."

  5. And yet again thi, from the London Evening Standard:

    "William - who was at work as an RAF search and rescue pilot in Anglesey today, on his 29th birthday, - will join members of the Royal Canadian Air Force as a co-pilot, as they carry out the "waterbirding" technique in a Sea King."

  6. This is getting ridiculous. This is from the Daily Mirror:

    "William and Kate begin their tour of Canada next Thursday and after arriving on a Royal Canadian Air Force plane, will go on to visit the country's cenotaph and tomb of the unknown warrior in the capital Ottawa to pay their respects."

    Obviously whatever the British media were given by our government as an itinerary referred to the Royal Canadian Air Force.

  7. The British media nad the Canadian media, I should say.

    Indeed, Tracy. The Globe and Mail stated same, as if the journos unthinkingly crib from each other's reports.
