KELOWNA - The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are due to appear before hundreds of royal watchers at UBC Okanagan at 12:35 p.m. today.

Reporter Adam Proskiw is on scene and says some people were holding their places in line by 4:30 a.m. for their chance to set eyes on the royal couple.

Their Royal Highnesses will greet people at the Okanagan campus of the University of British Columbia before watching some volleyball and meeting some selected players.

Later today, they are expected to attend a private reception at Mission Hill Winery in West Kelowna.
