You may be wondering why this photograph, where you can’t even see the couple’s faces, is so great.
The bird’s eye view shot gained popularity after the wedding for two reasons:
First, if you look at the photo, you may be able to notice how their bodies create the shape of a heart. Aww, could it get more romantic than that? Second, people are also referring to it as the “Diana’s View” photograph, as some saw the picture and imagined that this might be the view Diana would have of her son’s special day.’

“Once I started playing in bars I was always trying to find songs that people could relate too or sing along and Bohemian Rhapsody was one of those songs. Even though I’ve always played it instrumentally, everyone sang along. If you’re looking for an “entertaining song” play this one!
I’ve always wanted to attempt it on the harp guitar, so here it is! Hope you enjoy!”
This is why America and its coalition are trying to remove Assad and get a “West Friendly” government in Syria The war against Assad did not start in 2011 with the Arab Spring but at least as early as 2000 when Qatar proposed to construct a $10 billion, 1,500 kilometer pipeline through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey, connecting Qatar directly to the European energy market and reducing the EU’s energy dependence on Russia.
This made it a threat to Russia which sells 70% of its gas exports to Europe.
Assad, remaining loyal to his Russian ally, refused to sign the agreement to allow the pipeline to run through Syria and, instead, approved the “Islamic pipeline” running from Iran’s gas field through Syria to the ports of Lebanon, potentially making Iran the main supplier to the European energy market. Naturally, this did not go down well with the Gulf’s Sunni monarchs allied with the West, Israel, nor the West itself, particularly as it seeks to weaken Russia to the point of the Yeltsin era – back to subservience.
Robert F Kennedy Jr., in February, 2016 wrote,
“Secret cables and reports by the US, Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas link.”
In 2009, according to WikiLeaks, soon after Bashar Assad rejected the Qatar pipeline, the CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria.
In 2011, the US joined France, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and England to form the ‘Friends of Syria Coalition,’ which formally demanded the removal of Assad.
The CIA provided $6 million to Barada, a British TV channel, to produce pieces entreating Assad’s ouster. Saudi intelligence documents, published by WikiLeaks, show that by 2012, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia were arming, training and funding radical Jihadist Sunni fighters from Syria, Iraq and elsewhere to overthrow the Assad’s Shia allied regime.
Qatar, which had the most to gain, invested $3 billion in building the insurgency and invited the Pentagon to train insurgents at US bases in Qatar.
U.S. personnel also provided logistical support and intelligence to the rebels on the ground.
The Times of London reported on September 14, 2012, that the CIA also armed Jihadists with anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles and other weapons from Libyan armouries that the agency smuggled by ratlines to Syria via Turkey.
According to an April 2014 article by Seymour Hersh, the CIA weapons ratlines were financed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Following Washington’s decision to remove Assad, its Middle Eastern allies, including Turkey, has been assisting anyone and everyone (including ISIS and al-Qaeda) opposing the Syrian government.
Assad has repeatedly said that Turkey was not fighting extremism but actually fomenting it.
In December 2015, German newspaper Deutsche Welle reported that “Military and logistic support from Turkey was the key factor in extremists’ takeover of Idlib”, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said.
The war in Syria has now lasted for seven years. Although its roots lie in peaceful protests against the government, it has become something much more complex.

Britain and France joined the United States in the strikes in a coordinated operation that was intended to show Western resolve in the face of what the leaders of the three nations called persistent violations of international law.
Mr. Drumpf characterized it as the beginning of a sustained effort to force Mr. Assad to stop using banned weapons, but only ordered a limited, one-night operation that hit three targets.
Pippa Middleton, 33, wed her fiancé, millionaire financier James Matthews, 41, at an ancient English village church near the Bucklebury home of her wealthy parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, where Pippa grew up about 50 miles outside London.
Present in the church, besides her parents and brother, James Middleton, were Duchess Kate of Cambridge, her husband, Prince William, and their children.
Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 2, Pippa’s nephew and niece, who served as pageboy and bridesmaid.
He was, of course, the very first musical guest to sit in the passenger seat of James Corden’s car, and sing along to one of his own numbers.
Five years ago, when the idea of ‘James Corden, chat show supremo’ was but the twinkle in the eye of a stateside TV exec, George joined the comedic actor for a segment for the 2011 Comic Relief.
The idea was that James was having to drag, reluctantly, an un-cool mate along with him for the day. All the jokes were at the expense of George, his personal tribulations (”I thought we were going to pick up my photos”) and even his music. And, typically, he joined in with gusto. Even doing “sad face”.
And it worked so well, when James got the nod for his own show five years later, that one small sketch gave birth to ‘Carpool Karaoke’, a phenomenon that has gone on to include Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Madonna, Justin Bieber and even First Lady Michelle Obama. And it all started with George. Bravo.
