I got to see a real-life Prince in person! Britain’s Prince William and his wife Duchess Catherine are in Singapore for a three-day visit celebrating the 60-year Diamond Jubilee reign of Queen Elizabeth II. This kicks off a nine-day Southeast Asian and Pacific tour which includes Singapore, Malaysia, the Solomon Islands and the Pacific Island of Tuvalu. See here for what’s in store for the royal couple’s visit.
I caught a royal glimpse of the couple at Gardens by the Bay’s SuperTree Grove after a sweltering-hot wait in the sun. It was crowded and everyone excited for this probably once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. When it happened, it lasted a quick 15 minutes, of which 10 eight minutes were of figuring exactly where they were, three minutes trying to get a clear shot of them away from the sea of cameras, iphones and iPads, and the remaining ONE minute glimpse of the Prince and Duchess. That’s what I call once-in-a-lifetime adventure – it’s one of the craziest photo outings I had. It’s also the inspiration for the post title. Usually, it’s “Where there is a will, there is a way.” I had to chase them round the Gardens just to get a decent photo of them together. And the pair seemed inseparably lovely – “Where there is a Will, there is a Kate” *Wink*
