Dartmouth Man Has ‘Really Cool’ Brush With Royalty in Boston [VIDEO]
Dartmouth native Dylan Santos was feet away from royalty in Boston Wednesday and we had to find out what it felt like for him.
Earlier this week we shared the news that Prince William and Princess Kate were Boston-bound for a three-day visit. Well, they're here.
Interesting fact: The couple traveled commercial. Here I was thinking the man who is next in line for the crown would have flown on a private jet.
Santos, a Dartmouth native and old friend of the Fun 107 family, got to experience being feet away from the globally famous pair -- not something that happens every day.
I reached out to Santos to get his thoughts after seeing this video he posted on Instagram.
Santos found himself at City Hall Plaza as the prince and princess were leaving. Governor-elect Maura Healey was among those seen trailing behind the couple as they exited a building to an enthusiastic crowd.
"It was really cool," Santos said of the experience. "Sometimes you get lucky and see someone famous. This was on a different level. Everything stops."
As you can tell from the video, the energy was pretty electric and the prince and princess looked great.
"It was amazing and may never happen again in my lifetime," Santos said.
"An opportunity that was hard to pass up."
I'm with Santos on this. I may have to play stalker and try and get a real-life glimpse of these two before they wrap up their visit Friday. That may be tough, as their entire schedule isn't made public, though we do know they'll attend the Earthshot Prize awards ceremony after visiting the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.
OK, so maybe I won't be heading up to Boston on the off-chance I have my own celebrity encounter, but you have to admit, it's pretty neat to have the Royals around.
