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.’

Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason becomes breakout star after royal wedding performance
England may have a new duke and duchess in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but in the process, classical music also got a new star.
Sheku Kanneh-Mason, a 19-year-old cellist from Nottingham, captivated the congregation and everyone watching the royal wedding, his music filling St. George’s Chapel. As for Sheku himself, he can be as quiet as a church mouse.
“To perform at anyone’s wedding is such an honor, but a wedding of that much significance is just so exciting,” he said.
Sheku has been playing since he was 6. His parents Stuart Mason and Kadie Kanneh say it was love at first sight.
“And as soon as he got a cello, that was it. We couldn’t get him off it,” Kadie said.
He has a nearly priceless Amati cello that’s more than 400 years old and is never out of his sight. Well, almost never.
“I wouldn’t take it out at night,” he said, laughing. “No, I leave it, I leave it in my room … It’s not that extreme.”
He’s studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London on a full scholarship, along with his older siblings. In fact, every one of Sheku’s six brothers and sisters have spent their life playing classical music.

The Celebration used horses, actors, bands and dancers to tell the story.
“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
