So it didn’t escape me that his HRH Prince Charles and wife Camilla was making a brief visit to Canada – including one busy day in Toronto. I would only have time to try and cover one of Charles’ appearances. Since I had no formal accreditation and would be trying, paparazzi styles, to just get close enough for a clean shot I thought the Distiillery District – with its openness would be a good bet for a photo opportunity. Besides, it was a beautiful day out and what a great place for lunch as I waited for his Highness. (All photos Richard Budman / May 22, 2012)
I was studying the security movements to get a sense on how (and from where) Prince Charles would enter the District from. When I realized he would walk the main road greeting a few Royal watchers – I had a good feeling we’d get a photo op or two!
