Pro-tip: The way to keep your blowout looking beautiful overnight is to put it in a ponytail right at the base of your head, where skull comes to a small bump and that indentation of the neck is formed. It is easier to show than explain in words... :) For magical hair reasons I do not know, you will not have the ponytail crease in the morning and your hair won't be all pillow-crazy. This same method works if you travel by helicopter. Put that lovely hair in a low pony so you are looking polished on both ends of the trip. Kate arrived in Winmalee and departed by helicopter, and although she spent the day with her hair gloriously loose, she had it pulled low on the chopper.
Also on yesterday's itinerary, although coverage was slow to trickle in, was the couple's brief stop at Narrow Neck Lookout to view absailing. (My computer keeps auto-correcting absailing to assailing and I continue to refuse the help. Full disclosure if it sneaks past me!) Absailing is another name for repelling.
Kate wisely stayed a little back from the edge, a good plan when wearing those teetering wedges. I am a little dizzy just looking. Kate: "Get back here, buddy! I'm not raising rambunctious George by myself!"
"Having fun? Just checking..."
After their return to Sydney, William met privately with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
This is a fun recap of the day with audio of William and Kate chatting with personnel in Winmalee. Also, some cute girl guides discussing their feelings about meeting a princess. Not on this video, but somewhere floating in all the coverage, was the story of a five-year old girl who got to meet Kate. When asked what her thoughts were she said, "She had a very lovely voice...like she was from another country." Funny how that works, eh? :)
It is another busy day today (tomorrow by Sydney standards) on the royal tour. I'll be back later this evening to while away the hours with you all! Missed yesterday's post? Pop over and read it!
