Horse driven carriages, Rolls Royce, Jaguar and Bentley cars, priceless heritage jewellery, custom made shoes, made to measure suits, impressive British designer hats, British designer wedding dress inspired by Grace Kelly’s wedding dress, the Westminster Abbey and the Buckingham Palace…it’s the fairy tale wedding of Kate Middleton to Prince William, a historic event with an unprecedented international coverage, especially through the internet and television, with hundreds of millions of viewers feeling they actually joined the wedding family in this memorable event.
While an actual stay a The Goring Hotel where the bride stayed the night before the wedding and the rental of the same ballroom at the Mandarin Oriental (venue for the Queen’s pre-wedding dinner) as well as a Bentley or a Rolls Royce limousine are all realistic choices for any commoner to aspire to, for their wedding, none of the other aspects of the Royal Wedding can be replicated, making this the perfect fairy tale which everyone could dream about on draw upon. Many have hailed ” The Monarchy is back !” And in many ways, it has managed a spectacular come back, re-connecting with subjects as well as admirers all over the world. HRH Queen Elisabeth is not only one of the most respected figure in the world but is also the catalyst between generations.
The huge number of youngsters cheering the Royal family on their route between the palaces and Westminster Abbey was probably the most impressive and memorable moment. Most of the young generation did not live the wedding of Lady Diana 30 years ago, but some of them, did attend Princess Diana’s wedding, one of the most dramatic moments in the history of the British monarchy in the past half century. Princess Diana has indefinitely changed the British monarchy and many have even been arguing that the Royal Family will not be able to adapt to the very fast changing times.
Rapper Birdman (Bryan Williams), also co-founder of Cash Money Records, has apparently spent $8,000,000 on the 700-hp Maybach Exelero. The above pic was taken and tweeted by Birdman on his Twitter account along with the $8 million claim a couple of weeks after he was quoted with saying “They got this new Maybach that I want that costs $8 million, I gotta have it.”
Birdman, while not as well-known in the public as Jay-Z, Diddy and Dr. Dre, has a net worth estimated to be $100 million, and owns several other expensive exotics such as Maybach’s Landaulet and Bugatti’s Veyron. Powered by a V12 biturbo powerplant, Maybach’s Exelero goes 0-60 in just 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 218-mph. Rumor has it that he’ll be coating it in a lovely splash of red – we wonder if we’ll ever see it out in public ever again.

The title had the most ad pages for the first quarter, at 621, up 10 percent from the same period last year. Elle had 520 ad pages, with a 14.9 percent increase. Meanwhile W under new editor Stefano Tonchi’s leadership was up 5.8 percent to 265. However, none of these numbers tell us how much the magazines are charging for these pages, so it’s unclear who is actually the richest. Also, the bureau that reports these numbers doesn’t factor in online advertising, which it should at some point since paper media is rapidly becoming secondary to Internet media.
