Royalty Entertained at Calgary by “Royal Winter Stampede”
By Lorne Stout, Calgary, Alta.
‘Southern Alberta carved itself a special niche in the Canadian tour of Princess Elizabeth and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh with the first, and what may be the world’s only Royal Winter Stampede. It was a 90 minute edition of the famed Calgary Stampede, dropped out of the heat and sunshine of July into a swirling snowstorm of October 18th. But if the heat of summer was missing, there was no lack evident in the traditional heat of competition for which the great Calgary Stampede is renowned.’
