LONDON – Teenage royal wedding guest Faith Dickinson says she’s got her “dream dress” ready for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.The Peterborough, Ont., resident is among the throngs of royal fans who have flooded the town of Windsor west of London to celebrate the union at Windsor Castle on Saturday.But unlike most, the 15-year-old will watch the spectacle from the castle grounds, as one of seven youth associated with the Diana Award to receive a coveted spot outside St. George’s Chapel.Some 200 others from a range of charities are also invited onto the grounds, as well as more than 2,000 members of the public. Tens of thousands of other royal fans are expected to line the historic town’s winding streets.Dickinson expected she’ll have a prime view of the couple’s arrival, as well as their emergence from the ceremony as newlyweds.But her day will start early — she says she’ll have to dress and complete her makeup for an 8:30 a.m. arrival at the castle.With the wedding not set to begin until noon, and the couple’s procession through town not expected until 1 p.m., it’ll make for a long morning spent outside, the teen noted Friday.“But it’s all worth it,” Dickinson said, adding she’ll also get a chance to enter the chapel after the guests leave.“I love them, they’re a perfect couple and they do so much amazing charity work.”It’ll be a whirlwind trip for Dickinson, who arrived in London on Thursday, heads to Scotland on Sunday and returns to Canada on Wednesday.She’s still in school, after all, she points out.The Grade 10 student brought homework to tackle on the train to Edinburgh and back.“I have to get back to school — it’s exam season so I can’t miss too much,” said Dickinson, who brought math, history and science work.Nevertheless, she’s soaking up as much of her fairy tale trip as possible and plans to bring a camera to snap some prime shots of famous guests.And she gushed over her bespoke silk and lace dress by Ottawa designer Nora Pucci of the brand Zarucci, and a matching fascinator by Toronto milliner David Dunkley.“It’s a perfect outfit, my dream,” she said of the dress, in mauve.Dickinson said it was exactly one year ago that she met Prince Harry in London to receive a Diana Award for her charity work. Cuddles for Cancer provides blankets to cancer patients and veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.“I would never have imagined that I would be back for his wedding.”
Sachin Tendulkar and UNICEF today released a new video to celebrate fatherhood and highlight the importance of love, play, protection and good nutrition for the healthy development of young children’s brains.Video: Sachin Tendulkar on why early moments matter I UNICEFThe video will be played at the International Cricket Council Champions Trophy 2017 Final at The Oval, London on Sunday 18 June, when more than 80 countries celebrate Father’s Day.The video features cricketer and father-of-two Sachin Tendulkar who is widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time. It is part of UNICEF’s Super Dads initiative, which invites families to post photos and videos of what it takes to be ‘super dads,’ using the hashtag #EarlyMomentsMatter on their Instagram and Twitter accounts.To inspire families across the world to share their ‘super dads’ moments, photos and videos of UNICEF ambassadors and supporters who have got behind the campaign will be posted on UNICEF’s Instagram and Twitter, and featured on the campaign’s gallery between 6 and 18 June.“When I was a young child, my father gave me the right amount of love, freedom and support to shape who I am today,” said UNICEF Ambassador Sachin Tendulkar. “Every kid needs protection, love, good food and play to support growth and development, and it’s up to both parents to provide these.”Good parenting in early childhood, especially during the first 1,000 days, sparks neural connections in children’s brains, laying the foundation for their future successes. Research suggests that when children positively interact with their fathers, they have better psychological health, self-esteem and life-satisfaction in the long-term.The ‘Super Dads’ initiative forms part of UNICEF’s #EarlyMomentsMatter campaign, which aims to drive increased understanding of how children’s environments and experiences in early childhood can shape their future health, well-being, ability to learn, and even how much they will earn as adults.All photo and video submissions to the Super Dads initiative will feature on the #EarlyMomentsMatter gallery. UNICEF will select the most heart-warming, humorous, and imaginative photo and video submissions post them on the organization’s own digital platforms.
Login/Register With: Advertisement For people in northern countries such as Canada, summer is extra special, our reward for getting through the long, dark winter months.That’s why we throw ourselves into its fleeting months with abandon. We crowd patios, head out on road trips, shed layers of clothing, fill parks and beaches, and take the art of cottaging to a whole new level.And, of course, music is essential to all of it. Facebook Shawn Mendes? Carly Rae Jepson? Justin Bieber? Lights? Whose song will be crowned ‘song of the summer’ for 2019? (Jeff Spicer/Getty Images) Every year, one song emerges from the pack to claim the title of song of the summer. In 2012, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call me Maybe” wore the crown, so it’s no surprise that two tracks from her recent album, Dedicated, made this year’s list, alongside recent hits from Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Alessia Cara, Lights and others.Below, find our picks for this year’s top Canadian contenders.Which Canadian song is soundtracking your summer? Let us know at @CBCMusic.‘Julien,’ Carly Rae JepsenThe opening moments of Carly Rae Jepsen’s last album, Emotion, are seared into my memory. That bright burst of saxophone on “Run Away With Me” will forever remind me of summer 2015, when I shouted the words to that song at the top of my lungs at every given opportunity. In some ways, Jepsen has gifted us another memorable introduction on her latest release, Dedicated.The album opens with “Julien” and its squelching synth sounds are subtler than its predecessor, but it fits perfectly with the “chill disco” vision she originally had for this album. Whereas “Run Away With Me” was a euphoric declaration of love, “Julien” is about being hung up on a past fling as Jepsen confesses, “Another bad dream where you were running away/ I’m forever haunted by our time.” Sure, it sounds like a bummer, but it also has an incredible way of unearthing butterflies buried deep in the crevices of your heart. This song makes the act of pining feel blissful instead of painful. Whoever your Julien is, Jepsen’s new song spins an old thorn into a blooming fantasy that you can spend all summer getting lost in.— Melody Lau‘If I Can’t Have You,’ Shawn MendesWasting no time, this song hits you with the chorus right off the bat, as if to say, “You may as well learn it now; you know you’ll be singing it all summer.” Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Twitter
