If you're in Canada, tune in to ET Canada on GlobalTV tonight to catch an interview with Paul, filmed in Belgium last weekend.

18th November

Paul and Martha recently spent a few days in Belgium (more here, here and here). A major commemoration programme has been running in Flanders this year to mark the 90th anniversary of the battle of Passchendaele, and Paul received a very special invitation to attend a Canadian commemorative weekend from 9th-11th November. Queen Elizabeth II and the King and Queen of Belgium attended the opening ceremony at Tyne Cot Cemetery in July (pictures) so it was a huge honour for him to be asked to the closing ceremony on Remembrance Day. Coming right on the tail of filming "Passchendaele", the weekend was no doubt particularly emotional for Paul.
