Knowledge is Wealth
A Beautiful Magical Royal Wedding
The big day arrived amid glorious and warm May sunshine. 150,000 happy people began to gather in Windsor to cheer and support Prince Harry and Meghan. It appears that about 2 billion people watched worldwide. The British pageantry, pomp and circumstance was in full view. British, American flags, Canadian maple leaves and handmade bunting decorated the town, houses and businesses. The door of the West Wing of George’s Chapel had an amazing array of white flowers and green foliage, white Roses and Lily of the valley gave a wonderful scent.
Celebrities such as Elton John, Oprah Winfrey, the Beckham’s, the Clooneys, the Cordens, the Suit TV actors and Serena Williams and her husband were among the guests. 200 Charities were represented, altogether 600 guests came to the wedding. The Queen and Prince Philip led the Royal family in this joyous occasion.
The bride and her mother were dignified throughout the magical ceremony. In her spectacular Givenchy creation by Clare Waight Keller she stepped out of the Rolls Royce. The open bateau neckline showed off her shoulders and the cut of the dress accentuated her slim waist. The back of the dress extended to the 15ft train, which was embroidered with the flowers of all the Commonwealth countries. Her ten pageboys and bridesmaids were splendid including the two year-old. Prince Charles walked her down the aisle to Prince Harry who met her with smiles.
There was a difference to this Royal Wedding. The powerful and moving sermon by Bishop Michael Curry on the Power of love, the songs Stand by Me and Amen sung by the Kingdom Choir, the Orchestra with and Cellist Sheku Kanneh- Mason were all outstanding. The vows were sincere and everyone said they will support them in their journey of marriage. A rapturous cheer followed them in their ride through the town to Windsor Castle.
Going to the first of their evening parties, the new Duke drove his wife the Duchess of Sussex in a powder blue E-type Jaguar. Congratulations to the newlyweds.
