The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched down in Victoria on Saturday, September 24, for their much anticipated Royal Tour of British Columbia and Yukon.

And while thousands of well-wishers, waving British flags, lined the route through Victoria and waited on the legislature lawn to welcome the Royals, not everyone attended the event just for the Royal family.

Mathu Jeyakumar, a 23-year-old Polish exchange student, told the Canadian Press the Prime Minister was the main draw for her and her friends.

“Personally, we like Justin Trudeau a lot,” she said, giggling along with three fellow students.

“He’s cute. He’s cool. He’s so friendly.”

Those comments were also echoed on Victoria Buzz Facebook posts, so our photographer ItkasanImages, made sure to snap photos of the Prime Minister while he waited to greet the Royal family at the airport, and on the lawn of the B.C. Legislature. Enjoy!
