Chatting the Pictures: Royal Wedding; Santa Fe Massacre; Trump Summit Coin

Welcome to our latest edition of Chatting the Pictures. Streamed weekly over the web, RTP’s Michael Shaw and Cara Finnegan meet up Saturday mornings for twenty-five minutes or so for a lively chat about three current news photos.

About the Video

This week, Michael and Cara discuss a pool photograph of Meghan Markle and her mother, Doria Ragland, from the royal wedding; a photo published by The New Yorker depicting the shooting massacre at Santa Fe High School; and the picture of a coin commemorating a potential U.S.-North Korea summit meeting. As usual, we welcome your feedback and comments.
