Prince William & Kate: Tree Planting Ceremony!

Prince William & Kate: Tree Planting Ceremony!

Prince William and wife Kate attend a tree planting ceremony on Saturday (July 2) at Rideau Hall in Ottawa, Canada.

The 29-year-old Duke of Cambridge shoveled dirt on the Eastern Hemlock tree before handing the special silver spade to Kate, also 29, who scooped some more loads of soil.

The couple then walked to a nearby tree, which had been planted by William‘s parents in 1983, and stood for several quiet moments to commemorate what would have been his mother Princess Diana‘s 50th birthday.

Kate, wearing a grey Catherine Walker dress and Tabitha Simmons heels, and William then headed to the Canadian War Museum where they greeted nearly 1,500 spectators and toured some of the collections.

    @Mikado: Wouldn’t the proper term be Catherine, Dutchess of Cambridge? I mean why just Kate?

  • Cary

    I dont know what the heck your talking about. If your going to comment, make sure your well informed before you open your mouth.

  • Penny

    @Louise: Relax sweetheart, this is only the internet.

  • anon2

    I like her dress but I think it would have been better if it were a shade of light blue instead of light gray; gray does not suit her and it is too dreary of a color for summer.

  • Missy

    That b*tch Ann Coulter has come out her thoughts on Lady Diana…

    “I find it a little baffling when Americans get so gaga-eyed over a princess. In particular Lady Di, who was just this anorexic, bulimic narcissist.”

    Lady Di did a lot for people around the world. Screw AC.

  • tara

    I like how they’re taking their time to meet people on this trip. Very genuine. And they’re definitely sweet on each other. It’s cute.

  • gigi

    Haha so damn funny, like she is so dressed for the job. Manual labour is so not her thing.

  • shimmy


    FYI, she is a princess. No worries tho, it’s a common mistake ppl make.
    Her title in full is :Her Royal Highness Princess William Arthur Philip Louis (aka Princess William of Wales), Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, Baroness Carrickfergus.

    So she’s also a countess and a baroness. The day of the wedding it was also announced that if she were to be called “Princess” it should be “Princess William of Wales”. But for official use, she’s reffered to as The Duchess of Cambridge. I would personally just rather call her Princess Cathterine, but oh well


  • athena

    @fiver: She is a Princess as is William a Prince, and she is properly to be addressed as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

  • athena

    The Duke and Duchess really complement each other on style and color. I don’t care that William is losing his hair…it’s a family trait. Although Harry and uncle Andrew got the best of thick hair in the family of the Windsor men.
