Dozens of fans arrived more than nine hours early for a front-row seat, including 50-year-old Francine Dorion, who leaned over the barricade in keen anticipation of Will and Kate's first international visit.

"I made a painting for them and I hope to give it to them. A nice little present from people from Canada," said Dorion, who planted herself at 5 a.m. Thursday.


As the couple walked along the barricade, many royal watchers also had big grins, especially Dorion after Kate stopped and accepted her painting.

"Especially up close and receiving that gift, oohhh, it's exciting. I'm very excited," she said as she watched a fellow fan's recording of the exchange.
