Speaking of Kate and William at Dalvay
The Royal couple were at Dalvay-by-the-Sea this afternoon for lots of festivities. The magnificent hotel was built in 1894 by a rich oilman from Cincinnati, USA. The house has been used as a Hotel in the 1930s. The house was used in the movie Anne of Green Gables as the White Sands Hotel. Check-out their website: http://www.dalvaybythesea.com/. Here are a few photos from today.

The owner was telling us today that they have a guest staying there now who has been coming to their hotel every year since 1973.
