Not your standard Sunday afternoon

This afternoon we headed down to Prince Philip Highway (the main road through town) to wait for some special visitors to drive past. The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester have arrived for a short visit in recognition of the celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Independence. The Duke and Duchess were here 30 years ago at the first Independence Day. We did get a brief glimpse of them as they drove past.

As you can see, Tim and I received this invitation to attend a special party given by the Governor General (head of state) to meet the Duke and Duchess. Now all we need is a crash course in protocol!
