Королевство отмечает свадьбу

Watch Duke William of Cambridge and Duchess Kate of Cambridge share the customary royal kiss from the balcony of Buckingham Palace, twice. Watch video and learn more about the royal family: http://abcn.ws/royalweddingindex  The couple, both 28, got engaged while on holiday in Kenya in October. The wedding took place in Westminster Abbey. Westminster Abbey has hosted the weddings of the Queen and Queen Mother. The prince's private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, said the couple chose the Abbey for its "staggering beauty", 1,000-year royal history and its feeling of intimacy despite its size.  William and Kate married on 29 April. This day was chosen because it fell after Easter and Lent and before a busy political programme in May and June.  Prince William proposed to Kate with his mother Diana's diamond and sapphire engagement ring. Asked why he had done so, he said: "It is very special to me and Kate is very special to me now as well. It is only right the two are put together." http://youtu.be/gUF4VpQKaZE
Watching the wedding the world had a great chance to feel happiness together with the British and at the same time to admire exciting traditions and certainly hats of the invited women.

Королеве Елизавете II - 85 лет

Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 85th birthday but she’s the one handing out gifts. Queen’s birthday coincides with Maundy Thursday, or Holy Thursday in 2011. On that day she traditionally gave coins, but special ones, to as many men and as many women as her years. Without any doubt HRH Queen Elizabeth II is one of the most popular British monarchs and now is the oldest monarch ever to rule, having served as a queen for 59 years from June 1953.  The public adore her.  The Queen plays an important role as the head of state and as an ambassador for the United Kingdom and colonies.  But the Queen is ore than that, she is the genuine article.  A good wife, mother and a stupendous grandmother to boot.

Знаете, каким он парнем был?

I want everybody to remember this very brave and handsome man, Yury Gagarin, and to be proud of his heroic flight. Thanks to him we have an opportunity now to watch our beautiful and so fragile planet from space.

Флаг Соединенного Королевства

12th April 1606 Union Flag became the official flag of the United Kingdom. It is called  the Union Jack and symbolizes the administrative union of the countries of the United Kingdom. It is made up of the Flags of three of the Kingdom's countries all united under one Sovereign - the countries of 'England, of 'Scotland' and of 'Northern Ireland' (since 1921 only Northern Ireland has been part of the United Kingdom). As Wales was not a Kingdom but a Principality it could not be included on the flag. The Union Flag is commonly known as the Union Jack, although the exact origin of the name is unclear. One explanation is that it gets its name from the "jack staff" of naval vessels from which the original Union Flag was flown. The Union Flag should be flown with the broader diagonal band of white uppermost in the hoist (near the pole) and the narrower band of white uppermost in the fly (furthest from the pole).

Всемирный день здоровья

World Health Day is celebrated every year on 7 April, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization (WHO). In 1948, WHO held the First World Health Assembly. The Assembly decided to celebrate the World Health Day to mark WHO's founding, and is seen as an opportunity by the organization to draw worldwide attention to a subject of major importance to global health. The WHO organizes international, regional and local events on the Day related to a particular theme. World Health Day is acknowledged by various governments and non-governmental organizations with interests in public health issues. 7 April 2011 - Drug resistance is becoming more widespread and many infections are no longer easily cured, leading to prolonged and expensive treatment and greater risk of death. For World Health Day WHO calls for urgent and concerted action to slow down the spread of drug resistance, limit its impact today and preserve medical advances for future generations. Antimicrobial resistance is not a new problem but one that is becoming more dangerous; urgent and consolidated efforts are needed to avoid regressing to the pre-antibiotic era.  For World Health Day 2011, WHO is introducing a six-point policy package to combat the spread of antimicrobial resistance.

День смеха

On the first day of April all people laugh and make jokes. About the origin of this holiday I have a post in this blog. You can easily find it in the topic "Holidays". One more joke about this day.
King Philip the Gracious and His Jester
King Philip the Gracious, in the year 1466, made a bet with his court jester: the jester would earn a bag full of gold if he managed to fool the King on 1 April. Otherwise he would lose his head. Philip, clever as he was, met with his jester the day before 1 April and got him drunk. When the jester came back to his senses, he found himself sentenced to death, already on the scaffold, with the executioner's sword already raised. What the jester didn't know was that the whole thing was an April Fool's trick played on him, the sword wasn't a sharp one and there was a hog's bladder attached to his neck, filled with blood. The sword was swung, blood poured all over the place. However, the jester didn't move an inch. King Philip, surprised and distraught, and convinced that his ruse had horribly back-fired and that Jester was actually maimed, went to over to recover the jester's remains, whereupon the jester suddenly lifted up his head and requested his bag of gold!
