Holding Hands

A series of memorials took place to honor the victims of the Santa Barbara, CA, shootings this week, including a paddle-out with hundreds of surfers who held hands and formed a circle in the Pacific Ocean. Following Maya Angelou's passing, people also gathered to celebrate her incredible life with a moving service in Winstom Salem, NC. Visitors listened to a poetry reading at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, the church she attended for more than 30 years. See all that and more with the week's best pictures from across the globe, including must-see royal appearances from Kate Middleton and Prince Harry.
