But I'm sure she's aware of her schedule, and how long it will take to get from one venue to the other (I did ask Jean-Louis about that - I seem to remember it being mentioned that it was about 10-15 minutes to get from one to the other).

We (Catherine, Jim, myself) should remember, inasmuch as this is
possible, to hold any announcments that she would need to hear until
after she gets to the reception.
