STANLEY, Falkland Islands — The William-and-Kate refrigerator magnets in the gift shops are about as close as most people in the Falkland Islands have come to spotting the future king of England. He has only strolled through town once so far during his six-week tour of duty.
But islanders are trying to follow his every move nonetheless, proud to have royalty around as they near the anniversary of Argentina's April 2, 1982, invasion. Word of William's gift-shop penguin purchase spread quickly, and when helicopters approach town, heads pop outside to see if it's one of the Royal Air Force's familiar yellow search-and-rescue birds, the sort that might have William at the controls.
Locals dismiss Argentine complaints that his presence is provocative.
