    From the Tonawanda News:

    As the world eagerly awaits the birth of the newest member of the royal family, the Niagara Parks Commission and the Niagara Falls Illumination Board are preparing a special pink or blue illumination of Niagara Falls to commemorate the historic birth date of the future monarch.

    “We thought this was a special way to commemorate the birth of our future king or queen and congratulate the royal couple on the arrival of their first child,” stated parks commission Chair and Niagara Falls Illumination board member Janice Thomson.

    Was last week’s Royal Snub really a wake-up call for Niagara Falls? Or is there an easier explanation for why Prince William and Kate Middleton passed over the Honeymoon Capital on what will be their first international tour after their April 29 royal wedding?

    You could sense the disappointment in Niagara Falls when their itinerary was announced and it didn’t include “the world’s most famous address.” Mayor Jim Diodati, city council and even former mayor Ted Salci eagerly put the city’s line in the water, hoping to lure Wills and Kate to Niagara Falls.

    But the future king and queen will go to Alberta, Prince Edward Island, Quebec and Ottawa instead.

    Right away, some Review readers posted on Facebook that Niagara Falls got snubbed because it has developed a reputation as a tacky “overpriced tourist trap.”

    Wills and Kate won’t do Niagara? Pity.

    The future king of Canada and his new bride appear to be passing over Niagara on their summer tour of Canada.

    When Prince William and Catherine Middleton come to Canada in June, their itinerary will include Alberta, the Northwest Territories, Prince Edward Island, Quebec and the Ottawa area.

    But not Niagara, despite city hall’s attempt to lure them here.

    Still, Mayor Jim Diodati hopes the royal couple might find time to squeeze in an “unofficial” visit to the Honeymoon Capital amid the activities on their official itinerary.

    “Do they have any personal time in there?” Diodati asked. “If I was taking a romantic getaway with my new bride, I don’t think it would be part of my press release.”

    From WGRZ Channel 2 in Buffalo:

    Niagara Falls is Western New York and southern Ontario’s natural tourist attraction. But the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario has its mind set on two tourists in particular; England’s future King and Queen, Prince William and his bride-to-be, Kate Middleton. After their spring wedding they’re planning a trip to Canada.

    “We couldn’t think of a more natural place than the honeymoon capital of the world to make a trip,” said Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The Honeymoon Capital wants to roll out the red carpet for Prince William and Kate Middleton after they tie the knot in April.

    Niagara Falls city hall plans to send a follow-up invitation to one it sent to the future king in December now that it appears certain the newlyweds will honeymoon in Canada, says Mayor Jim Diodati.

    “I can’t imagine they would come here on their honeymoon and not come to… the Honeymoon Capital,” the mayor said during Monday’s council meeting, the same day a British paper reported Canada will be the destination of newlyweds’ first international trip.
