April 11, 2011. What will it take for a commoner to fill a queen’s shoes? Lots of training. Unending patience. A comfort with discomfort.

This week Ivory Coast’s Laurent Gbagbo is overthrown and the country’s president assures the public that life will soon return to normal, protesters calling for the release of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei manipulate his installation at the Tate Modern in London, Kate Middleton steps out for a final appearance before the royal wedding, and a 13-year-old Justin Bieber fan is in the marrying mood.
