A royal wedding for the ages took place last week, 19 May, as Prince Harry and Ms. Megan Markle tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony that took place at St George’s Chapel. The wedding was watched by millions of people all around the world tuning in to see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
There were a number of celebrity guests in attendance such as David and Victoria Beckham, Oprah Winfrey, Idris Alba, Serena Williams, James Cordon George Clooney, Elton John and much more.
One of the highlights of the wedding was of course Megan Markle’s wedding dress and the special meaning behind her wedding veil. Kensington Palace wrote on Twitter, “Ms. Markle expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony. Ms. Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition.”
The ceremony was stunning and definitely strayed from regular royal wedding protocol. No royal bride had ever addressed their guests but the new Duchess broke that streak, reading a more than emotional poem that she wrote to express her love for Prince Harry. It brought many a tear to people’s eyes and if that wasn’t emotional enough, the 19 year old cellist, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, was sure to be the icing on the cake with that breath-taking performance.
Congratulations to the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Here’s wishing them all the happiness in the world.
