DEFINITION: Pomp & Circumstance—Splendid celebration with ceremony and fuss; also, the title of several military marches played at ceremonies.
The title is taken from Act III, Scene III of Shakespeare’s Othello:
Farewell the neighing steed and the shrill trump, The spirit-stirring drum, th’ear-piercing fife, The royal banner, and all quality, Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious war!”

I Read About Kate’s Tiara!
~~~~~The veil is held in place by a Cartier ‘halo’ tiara, lent to Miss Middleton by The Queen. The ‘halo’ tiara was made by Cartier in 1936 and was purchased by The Duke of York (later King George VI) for his Duchess (later Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother) three weeks before he succeeded his brother as King. The tiara was presented to Princess Elizabeth (now The Queen) by her mother on the occasion of her 18th birthday.
Is that cool, Or What?
~~~Okay here’s your assignment, my deeear darrrlings……..watch this video below (love love love it) and tell me what you imagine Harry whispered to his brother as he snuck a peek of the stunning Kate walking down the isle?????
