    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.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    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.”
