Summer returned today :)

On this day 17 years ago, Princess Diana was killed in that awful car crash in Paris.  It has been revealed that her wedding dress and other personal possessions which are currently being looked after brother, Lord Althorp, will pass to both Prince William and Prince Harry as requested by Princess Diana in her Will which stated they are to have these possessions when her sons reached 30 years old.

This week saw a space of the wedding cake reach $1,375 at auction.  The slice included the original presentation box marked with the date of the wedding and Prince Charles's royal feathers and a "CD" monochrome.

Brad Pitt Here in Dorset

Whilst I was slaving away in the office today, the delectable Brad Pitt was visiting Bovington Tank Museum here in Dorset to promote WWII film Fury in which he plays an army sergeant.   He also confirmed that he secretly married long-term partner, Angelina Jolie, at their French chateau last Saturday.

Mobile Lovers painted by Banksy on a wall outside a youth club in Bristol, has been sold to a private collector for £403,000.  Cash-strapped Broad Plain Boy's Club found the artwork in a doorway outside their Club in April and after a dispute with the Council on who owned the artwork, Banksy confirmed that the painting did in fact belong to the Boys Club.
