You may have heard of a very happy event coming up at the end of April. It's the wedding of our very own, dear Prince William and his radiant fiance, Ms Kate Middleton. To prepare for and celebrate this wonderful occasion, For Dummies have brought us this charming guide to Royal Weddings past, present and future written by the distinguished editor of the Independent on Sunday, Julian Knight. As an extra special treat Dummies have given us a sample of the book to download for absolutely nothing. That's right, free! You can launch this splendid pamphlet in a new window, here

And we chose a winner. This is Maely's doodle from Jelogisa, a wonderful combination of colour and randomness!
