“England is a lord-loving country,” lamented a foreigner centuries back, and nothing, it seems, pitches the nation into mass hysteria than a royal wedding. Other than the pomp and circumstance, the public fuss is a thing to behold. Though lower in key than his brother’s wedding (for the man might be king), Harry and Meghan had their share of grandeur, and posed with the royal brood for a handsome official photo.

That sparked off a life of modelling, involving the exciting life choices of eating brown rice, keeping her “carb complex simple” and avoiding processed foods. The Kingfisher Calendar 2018 model also loves the movie Devdas, idolising Aishwarya.
With the Queqiao relay satellite, which was launched on May 21, China aims to be the first country to explore the ‘dark side of the moon’. The name of the satellite means ‘Magpie Bridge’ and takes its origins from a Chinese folk tale where birds bridged the gap between two heavens to unite lovers.
