I'm not a super big fan of the royal family per se, but I do like having them around as antiquated as the concept is. I don't even know why. I think it's nice that they wanted to visit canada first and I hope william and kate have a fun trip despite being forced to shmooze with politicians at every turn. What prompted me to post however was seeing people with signs about princess diana saying "I saw princess diana here in the 80s" or something. How macabre and disturbing! What the hell? Why would you think Prince William wants to see or know or be reminded of that? What purpose does it serve? What a circus! Just seems supremely tactless.
