Canada is enjoying a holiday today, one which pre-dates Confederation. Originally May 24th was set aside to celebrate the actual birthday of Queen Victoria, however now the holiday fluctuates so that it is celebrated on the last Monday before May 25. It is fitting that HRH Charles, The Prince of Wales along with his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall are now visiting our province. We decided not to travel to Halifax or Pictou for a look, but opted to watch on the T.V. instead. I love the coat worn by the Duchess of Cornwall this morning- a bright blue with lapels made from our Nova Scotia tartan.
Maybe it's time to do an all-tartan quilt? Hmmm... Happy Victoria Day to all!
Such careful attention to detail is always evident on royal visits.
Later Camilla added a scarf made from the same wool tartan.
