Re: ***The Royal Wedding***

Ottawa has the big Canada Day celebrations, so that explains that part of the trip. The east coast is always pretty touristy in the summer, but I don't know about Yellowknife or Calgary. The Prime Minister's riding is in Calgary, so that might explain that leg.

Re: ***The Royal Wedding***

If I recall correctly, the Calgary Stampede is the largest drinking party of the year in Canada. Everyone cowboys-up and has a blast. Or so I've heard...

William, Kate to fly Sea King, dragon boat race during Canadian visit

OTTAWA — Prince William, a Royal Air Force search and rescue pilot, will join his Canadian counterparts in landing a Sea King helicopter during his first visit to Canada as a newlywed.

The royal tour kicks off in Ottawa, where the duke and duchess will visit the War Memorial and tomb of the unknown soldier the day before participating in Canada Day festivities on Parliament Hill.

Moving east through Quebec, they’ll get a chance to show off their domestic skills cooking with students from the Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec, before travelling to Prince Edward Island.

There, the newlyweds will be pitted against each other in dragon boat races across a lake at Dalvay-by-the-Sea, setting of the Anne of Green Gables novels of which Catherine is a longtime fan.

Heading north to Yellowknife, William and Kate will be welcomed by a First Nations prayed drum song and kick off a game of shinny — taking things one step further than William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, who dropped the puck at a Vancouver Canucks hockey game in 2002.

The duke and duchess will wind up their Canadian visit in Calgary, where they’ll take part in a White Hat Ceremony — the Stampede equivalent of offering the keys to the city by outfitting visitors with white cowboy hats.

James Moore, minister of Canadian heritage, revealed more details of Prince William and Catherine’s Canadian tour at Rideau Hall in Ottawa Tuesday, accompanied by Gov. Gen. David Johnston.

The world’s most famous newlyweds will be in Ottawa from June 30 to July 2, joining July 1 festivities on Parliament Hill, before stopping in Montreal on July 2 and Quebec City on July 3 on their way to Charlottetown and Summerside, P.E.I. They’ll head north to Yellowknife from July 4 to 6 and wind up their Canadian visit in Calgary from July 6 to 8, taking in the opening of the city’s annual western-themed festival.

As William and Catherine undertake their first overseas tour as a married couple, global interest is expected to be massive, mirroring the star power of William’s parents on their first visit to Canada in 1983.

Already, at least 85 British journalists are registered to cover the tour, while just 18 accompanied Queen Elizabeth last summer. The Canadian government said Tuesday that journalists from China, Japan, India and Qatar are among the 241 foreign media representatives who have already been accredited.

Scandal is afoot!

Quote:
French Magazine Upsets British Royals with Topless Photos of Kate Middleton

The British royal family is threatening legal action against the French magazine Closer after they published topless paparazzi photos of the Duchess of Cambridge. The photos were taken from a distance, as she and Prince William were vacationing at a private house in Provence last week, and their existence was first revealed on the magazine's website last night. The full magazine with more photos inside reached newsstands on Friday, with little warning. The royal couple is currently on a tour of Malaysia, but is said to be "furious" about the "grotesque" invasion of privacy.

France supposedly has some of the strictest privacy laws in the world, thanks in part to William's mother, Princess Diana, whose death in Paris 15 years ago sparked a backlash against invasive paparazzi. The royals may have a better legal standing there than in the UK, but as the BBC points out, based on previous lawsuits that Closer has faced, the fines they may incur are worth the risk of increased sales. (The magazine that published the photos is actually the French edition of a UK publication, but now has a different owner.)

The family indirectly referenced Diana's death in their official statement, saying, "The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to The Duke and Duchess for being so." According to the Guardian the photos were allegedly offered to British newspapers last week, but all turned them down. Much like with the scandalous photos that TMZ posted last month of Kate's brother-in-law, Harry, most of the UK media will go out of their way to avoid angering the royal family by publishing private pictures.

They are terrible quality.

I don't really feel that sorry for celebs when they get snapped topless on a beach or something like that, because really they should expect it. But with photos to be this grainy with the size lenses the paps have, they must have had to have been so far away, to the point where I reckon it would be fair to expect they had privacy.

It doesn't help that William seems to not even notice she's topless. If his chowder bags ain't working in person... some grainyass photos from a mile away aren't gonna do the trick.

yeah, I'm pretty sure they would have needed the Hubble telescope judging from the distance these were shot at.

And she ain't no Kate Upton.

The drama...

Quote:
Italy magazine goes ahead with topless Kate pics

ROME (AP) — An Italian gossip magazine owned by former Premier Silvio Berlusconi published a 26-page spread of topless photos of Prince William's wife Kate on Monday despite legal action in France against the French magazine that published them first.

Chi hit newsstands on Monday, featuring a montage of photos taken while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on vacation at a relative's home in the south of France last month. They included the 14 pictures published by the popular French magazine Closer, which like Chi is owned by Berlusconi's Mondadori publishing house.

But the Chi spread ran the whole sequence of photos as the couple sunbathed on a terrace, including one shot of the princess putting sun cream on her backside that didn't appear in Closer.

The couple is hitting back hard against the publication of the images, which William's St. James's Palace called a "grotesque" invasion of their privacy.

Later Monday, lawyers for the royal couple are due in court in Nanterre, France, to seek an injunction against Mondadori to prevent further dissemination of the images, which were also reproduced over the weekend by an Irish tabloid. The palace said it would seek damages from Mondadori.

And St. James's Palace said Sunday that family lawyers would file a criminal complaint against the unidentified photographer or photographers involved. The palace said it would be up to French prosecutors to decide whether to investigate and pursue a criminal case for breach of privacy or trespassing.

Chi editor Alfonso Signorini told The Associated Press over the weekend that he didn't fear legal action since the photos were already in the public domain following Closer's publication.

Re: ***The Royal Wedding***

Quote:
A French judge ordered the magazine Closer to turn over topless photos of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, on Tuesday. Attorneys for the magazine argued unsuccessfully that the photographs were not an invasion of privacy because bare breasts are no longer taboo in Europe. When did bare breasts become taboo in Western civilization?
Spoiler:
Probably around 3,000 years ago. Women are displayed with exposed breasts in Minoan artwork from 1500 B.C. Some historians believe that these ancient women went topless only during religious rituals—bare-breasted, buxom goddesses have been worshipped since the dawn of civilization—but some of the artworks depict everyday activities, suggesting that bare breasts may have been commonplace. Just across the Mediterranean, ancient Egyptian women sported elaborate dresses that could either cover the breasts or leave them exposed, depending on the whim of the designer. Over the next few centuries, however, breasts become strictly private parts. Ancient Athenian women were wearing flowing, multilayered robes that concealed the shape of the bosom by the middle of the first millennium B.C. Spartan attire was more risqué, exposing the female thigh, but breasts were always covered.

A series of sculptures suggests that even Greek goddesses became more bashful about their breasts during this period. Aphrodite of Cnidus, sculpted by Praxiteles of Athens in the fourth century B.C., depicts the nude goddess covering her genitals but leaving her bosom exposed. In copycat statues sculpted over the next several centuries, however, the goddess uses her other hand to cover a breast as well. The evolution of these Venus pudica sculptures strongly suggests that the ancients had come to feel that modesty required covering the breasts.

It’s not entirely clear why bare breasts became verboten in ancient Greece, but some historians think it had to do with the changing roles of women. As the centuries progressed, ancient Athens became an increasingly patriarchal society. Women retreated into the home, rarely emerging in public, and lived under the dominion of their fathers or husbands. Because the breast had long been a symbol of feminine fertility, it had to be kept from view.

Under the influence of the Bible and ancient Greek and Roman traditions, Western women kept their breasts concealed beneath loose-fitting garb for more than a millennium. The French aristocracy was the first to challenge the taboo. During the 1300s, necklines began to plunge and clothing became tighter, exposing the shape of the breast. Agnès Soler, the mistress to French King Charles VII, shocked the court by appearing in a painting with one breast fully exposed in the late 1400s. The most provocative ladies of Venice and England are said to have walked the streets bare-breasted in the following century. There are even hints that Queen Elizabeth I herself exposed all or nearly all of her breasts to guests, which, if true, might provide some comfort to the young Duchess of Cambridge. But the trend was temporary, and the general prohibition on bare breasts in European society was firmly entrenched again by the 1600s.

Quote:
The nurse receptionist at a central London hospital that treated the Duchess of Cambridge for severe morning sickness has apparently committed suicide, only two days after falling for a prank by two Australian radio DJs.

The DJs, posing as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, called the King Edward VII Hospital on Wednesday morning at 5:30 a.m. to inquire about Kate’s condition and were patched through to another nurse, who revealed private health details about the duchess.

Australian radio personalities Mel Greig and Michael Christian later apologized for the hoax — sheepishly noting that they were surprised that the call was put through and that their Australian accents were not detected.

Authorities found Jacintha Saldanha unconscious at 9:30 a.m. local time on Friday, according to UK media reports. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The hospital confirmed in a statement she was the employee who’d been the victim of a recent hoax.

“Jacintha has worked at the King Edward VII’s Hospital for more than four years,” John Lofthouse, the hospital’s CEO, said in a statement. “She was an excellent nurse and well-respected and popular with all of her colleagues.”
