The Duke and Duchess came to Cambridge

I was excited to see the date announced in the local paper of the visit by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I scoured web sites and read news papers religiously for the next few weeks to find out where and when. I contacted a friend to see if she'll come and gawp with me. We settled for 10am in the Market Square.

When I turned up at 10am, there was no way I could see her.  Everyone has turned up, lining up the Square. I am sure all the offices and shops have emptied out to the Square too. I managed to get onto the Square itself but with the market stalls all up as normal, there were not many places you could stand for a good view of the Guildhall. I resorted to standing on a disuse fountain in the middle of the square and managed to get this blury photo.

I managed to see both of them closer up when they walked from the Guildhall to the Senate House. The Duke was talking to everyone on my side of the road, got me very excited that he might get to me but they were told to move on just before he got to me. Boo! I only saw my friend after the group has dispersed.

I am loving the stickers from AC Soho Garden collection. I especially love the feathers.

That bright and colourful title really captures your excitement! So sorry you didn't get closer ... but very well worth scrapbooking.
