One picture depicts Conrad Murray during his trial over the death of Michael Jackson. On November 29, 2011, Murray was sentenced to four years in prison, though he is expected to serve a little less than two years due to jail overcrowding. Murray plans to appeal the verdict and is planning on representing himself.

Another is of the now-famous photo of Prince William and the new Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine, shortly after their lavish wedding, kissing on the Buckingham Palace balcony next to a very unhappy bridesmaid, Grace van Cutsem. The picture of the young girl has become a frequent meme across the internet.
