With my riding-inspired boots, my tweedy jacket and my ladylike fur muff, I felt like I was ready to meet some royalty... so I did...

Ok, I didn't actually meet them, I zoomed in for that shot but I didn't zoom for this picture...

...pretty close, right?

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are currently on a Canadian tour and they stopped in our area this week. So, I took a day off work (yeah for work flexibility!) and my pops and I went to check out the excitement. I grew up reading Majesty magazines so it was neat to see Crown Prince in person. Apparently, it was a big deal that the royal couple broke from 'The Schedule' and took a few minutes out to meet and shake hands with the locals. Prince Charles went down the line away from us, while Camilla came towards us. Camilla was sweet and funny... but I really wanted to talk to Prince Charles. He visited Hamilton once before, MANY years ago and I was part of the huge children's choir that sang at his welcome celebration. Truth is, I should never sing in public and I have felt like I've owed him an apology ever since. Maybe next time, Charlie...

(p.s. a big thanks to the lovely Briannelee for the blog award. She's pretty and awesome. Pretty awesome, really... and best of all... it's her birthday (it's Saturday and technically this is posted on Friday but you guys should all be in bed and won't read until tomorrow... Happy Birthday!!! xo)

How cool to be so close to royalty...feels so antiquated, no? Love the muff and those boots--very luxe fall additions.

First of all, I'm LOVING your muff! You look SO European chic!! Second of all, um....WHAT?!? You're basically royalty now!!! I can't believe how close you were in the second pic... You could've hugged her.

Clare said...

I can't believe you have a vintage fur muff. I bet Camilla was jealous.

Megan Wolf said...

wow this is pretty awesome! are you kidding?! your so close, even with the zoom! anyways, why are you better dressed than royalty here? they would have been jealous if they saw you for sure. I need to get me one of those vintage muffs, thats unbelievable. haven't seen one of those in years. pretty sure I had a white one as a little girl in chicago, and I used to wear it ALL the time. those things are the bomb dot com. ha. on another note, love the little twist in your hair, super cute.

You almost touched Camilla. Camilla has totally touched the Queen. Therefore, you almost touched the Queen!!! I am INFINITELY jealous!

Julia said...

I LOVE a muff. You look fabulous, and I've always had a sift spit for Prince Charles. Which probably makes me weird. Anyway, gorgeous first photo, especially. You always look beautiful!
