A closer look on Prince William's upcoming wedding



Though I resented Kate Middleton and quite upset with Prince William's decision to marry her instead of choosing a woman within his circle (a lady born with noble or royal lineage), I have no choice but to include her in many updates concerning Prince William. 

Lately, the couple posed for Mario Testino, a peruvian photographer who took many enduring photographs of William's mother, the late Princess of Wales. Testino is an accomplished celebrity snapper who rub elbows with A-list stars and done numerous official portraits of Prince William, his brother,Prince Harry and their father, Prince Charles.

In this newly-released photos, Middleton and the Prince are more relaxed and comfortable with the camera. The road leading to their wedding on April 29,2011 at the historical Westminster Abbey is closely watched by royal observers around the world.

Prince William and Kate Middleton posed for celebrity photographer, Mario Testino, at the state room of Clarence House.

The same angle and style. Though taken in separate years and with different photographers, the circumstance is strikingly astonishing, to add discomfort to the image, Middleton wore the same style of blouse like that of Diana.

But one thing I noticed about them, it seems the poses and circumstances resembled every event in William's parents' lives, is this a bad omen?

In 1981, Lady Diana Spencer chose the 18-carat oval shaped blue sapphire surrounded with 15 diamonds when Garrads, the crown jeweler, presented her with various designs. Nearly thirty years later, when her son chose the ring to seal his engagement to Middleton, skeptical people cried for "bad luck" as the ring symbolizes Diana's suffering and doomed marriage.

Middleton also chose to wear a royal blue dress during the announcement of the engagement which had been the color of Diana's dress in 1981 when her engagement to the Prince of Wales was announced. William and Kate chose the 29th of April as their wedding date, his parents also married on the 29th of July, much more, April 29 falls on Friday which believed to be a "sorrow" day for a wedding.

Prince William also chose to walk-down-the-aisle in Westminster Abbey avoiding St.Paul's Cathedral because this is the church where his parents married in 1981, he does not want to relive the misery of his mother after joining the royal family. But oh boy! Diana also said the same line in 1981! The late Princess of Wales was heard saying: "I am glad my wedding will not happen in Westminster Abbey, it was there where my parents united and I want to avoid the same story". Diana's parents, the Earl Spencer of Althorp and The Honourable Frances Burke-Roche separated and divorced after fourteen years of marriage.

Anyway, the modern world does not believe anymore in superstitions and folklore tales and the odd circumstances would soon vanish from people's mind. Only fortune tellers can tell if destiny would really help them push to the throne as King and Queen of the United Kingdom.
