Wedding of Prince Harald of Norway and Sonja Haraldsen. 29 August 1968.
"Kate has become more than just her husband’s wife, and is forging ahead into the future, impressing all those she works with, thanks to her scrupulous attention to detail, her natural warmth, empathy and dedication. Even before she entered royal life, she was drawn to the support of vulnerable children and has also shown that she is willing to confront the more ‘raw, ugly, dirty and difficult’ issues such as addiction. For their wedding day, she and William wrote a prayer that they recited in their vows, which included the line ‘Help us serve and comfort those who suffer’, and with this pledge it is clear how they see their role in the future of the royal family."

"The Museum has been open in Woolwich for almost two centuries.
To close this wonderful and historic place forever, and to exile its matchless Collections to inaccessible obscurity, would be a local and national travesty.”
The petition is in early days, we could really use your help!
"[Catherine] also has taken to royal convention well, with a natural poise and grace, while choosing clothes which show off her style. She has a lot going for her - she’s pretty, very natural and is always so well-presented. I have taken thousands of photos of her from all angles and I can say that she hardly ever looks bad or miserable in photos.”

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
