Aloha Friday - Royals Edition!

Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend. Today I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question.

With Charles and Camilla celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee with a visit to Canada next week, we will be making the one-hour trip from our cottage in the hopes of catching a glimpse of them during one of their walkabouts.

Yes, it was exciting to see Kate and William last Summer (who just happened to spend the night in the house across the street from us!), 

but Camilla is my favorite Royal
 (next to the Queen of course!)

which leads to this week's question:

Would you make an effort to get out and see royalty (Hollywood or British) if they were doing a walkabout only an hour from your home?

Well I take that back. It would depend on who it was and why they were coming. I cant think of anyone right now I would do it for.

Definitely not British Royalty nor a Hollywood type.

Would they drive an hour to see me?

It would all depend on who it is, and how big the crazy crowd would be doing the same thing. If it's big and crazy, then no. :)

No, definitely would stay away from the chaos that would happen with them being around. President Obama was here recently and I changed my plans an entire day because of road closures and desire not to be caught in the traffic. Sure it may have been cool to see him, but I'll watch television coverage.

That is so cool that Will & Kate were right there!! I have a fascination with Diana!! Not sure I would drive an hour to see someone but I LOVE just running across them :)

No...I'd be more shocked if they were to even show up anywhere near my town.

Have a great weekend!

Maybe for Will & Kate or Prince Harry but that's it.

Enjoy your weekend!

Nope. I'm simply not interested however I did visit Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace last December. ;D

Noner said...

Nope. I really have no interest in meeting the worlds "famous" people. The President was in our city, and I didn't even know he was coming till he was gone. lol

As much as I would like to I probably wouldn't. I don't like crowds.
