The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were ever so kind to drop into Kelowna as part of their royal tour of British Columbia and the Yukon this week. Here is a behind the scenes report on their visit. This is a bit of a long post, so you may need some time to sit down and read this one.
First I want to mention that I first needed to get accredited, and that is no easy matter. My editor had to fill out a very long and bureaucratic government form, this included a copy of my driver’s license and a letter of assignment from the newspaper that I work for with company letter head, I suggested he write “I hereby assign Gary Nylander, Kelowna Daily Courier staff photographer to photograph the Royal Highness’s, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the 27th day of September, 2016 in Kelowna, B.C.” I’m not sure if that’s what got written but it was a fun suggestion.
