2011 Picture of the Year


The year 2011 has definitely been globally eventful on the social and political fronts.  But this picture of Kate Middleton ( now the Duchess of Cambridge) walking with her father and sister towards the entrance to Westminster Abbey on her wedding day 29 April, 2011, is my chosen picture of the year.

Having recently seen this spectacular wedding dress up close on display in Buckingham Palace, during the annual summer opening exhibition, I bear witness that this dress is infinitely exquisite.  You really need to be within breathing distance of this sublime creation to fully appreciate its fine detail.

My young daughter who was with me at the time was truly fascinated with the dress. “Mummy, was your wedding dress like this?” she blurted  out in full earshot of those around us. Of course, I pretended not to hear and hurriedly moved her along before letting out a sigh of relief.

Happy new year Kate and Wills. Oops! I meant to say, Their  Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
