Kate and William to kick off Calgary Stampede
Kate and William will press the buzzer to begin the 2011 Calgary Stampede Parade on Friday July 8 and we're hoping to see them get into the spirit just like Andrew and Fergie on their own royal tour of Canada in 1987, although not in Calgary, and wear cowboy hats.
Maybe not but I'm guessing Wills and Kate will wear the white hats they receive at Thursday's White Hat Cermony, a tradition started some 60 years ago by Alderman Don MacKay to welcome visiting dignitaries and symbolizes the warmth of western hospitality. The ceremony will take place at the Calgary International Airport, and is usually carried out by White Hat Volunteers. Will keep you updated though, whatever the headwear.
