Royal Canada visit ‘like beatlemania’

The hysteria surrounding Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal tour to Canada has been compared to the Beatles’ visit to the country in 1964. Wills and Kate have been met by huge crowds wherever they ventured during their nine-day tour and Canada’s prime minister Stephen Harper has said the country’s reaction to the couple’s visit was just like Beatlemania. Mr Harper was speaking as he and his wife Laureen joined the Duke and Duchess for the Calgary stampede. He praised William and Kate in a short speech telling them: “Thank you especially for helping us celebrate Canada Day on Parliament Hill”. “I say, we haven’t seen a love-in like that since the first visit of the Beatles. Indeed, everywhere you went you left a trail of utterly charmed Canadians in your wake.” Earlier the couple had arrived at Calgary airport on the last full day of their nine-day tour, following a private day in the Rockies, to be greeted by young cancer sufferer, Diamond Marshall, six. She was so overawed by the occasion that she ran across the runway and flung her arms around the Duchess’s neck. The youngster was diagnosed with a serious abdominal tumour in February and has recently undergone chemotherapy and radiotherapy. She wrote to the charity Children’s Wishes from her hospital bed asking to meet ‘Princess Kate’ after watching the Royal Wedding and becoming entranced by her ‘fairytale story’. The duchess, who was wearing a pretty primrose silk dress by Jenny Packham, looked visibly moved and embraced the poorly young girl. Afterwards her step mother Danielle, 32, said: ‘She was so lovely and so gracious. For a little girl who has dreamed of meeting a princess it was a dream come true.’ Diamond added: ‘She was as fancy as she looks on the TV.’ Just like other royal couples before them, including the Duke and Duchess of York, they were then handed a traditional white cowboy hat each. White Hatting is a long-standing tradition in Calgary and is considered a symbol of Western hospitality. Kate Middleton ‘too skinny to have baby’ warns top UK doctor The Duchess of Cambridge is on the brink of being too underweight to be able to conceive a baby, warns a top UK doctor. Kate, 29, was this week portrayed on a sick pro-anorexia website encouraging young girls to starve themselves. And This Morning’s Dr Chris Steele, 65, who has been the health expert on the ITV1 magazine show for 13 years, said that if Kate lost anymore weight it would be difficult for her to become pregnant. “Kate has always been on the thin side but she’s now on the brink of being underweight,” the Daily Star quoted Steele as saying. “If she continues to lose any more weight it’s entirely medically plausible she will have extreme difficulty getting pregnant. “Being underweight is one of the greatest problems for women trying to get pregnant. If they aren’t at a healthy weight they will not ovulate properly. This is why anorexics have huge problems conceiving,” Steele added. Experts have found that women who are underweight are 72 percent more likely to have a miscarriage.
