The Royal Wedding is not simply a marriage between a Prince and a future Princess, but an entire sensation. The media dissects every move of the fiancés, gossips about the guest list, and criticizes the fashion. What is all the fuss about? Read on and you will know.
The newlyweds are Prince Henry of Wales, whose full title is now Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel, with Queen Elizabeth’s kind addition of the first on the morning of the wedding, and Meghan Markle, who is now to be officially called Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex. The wedding took place in St. George’s Chapel in the Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018. Prince Henry was involved with the public along with his Best Man and brother, the Duke of Cambridge, by meeting crowds gathered around the Windsor Castle. The two brothers walked down Castle Hill to St. George’s Chapel as soon as all the guests were seated, wearing their frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals. The Queen stole the show in a lime green ensemble as she arrived by car at Galilee Porch before noon. Meghan Markle arrived after all royal family members did and she wowed the awaiting and cheerful well-wishers with a beautiful Givenchy gown, a see-through, flower patterned veil held in place by Queen Mary’s diamond tiara, and an extremely long train. The rings were given out by the Archbishop of Canterbury and the service was given by an American Bishop, Curry, from the Episcopal Church. This is simply one of the elements that proves Meghan Markle’s arrival to the royal family will bring along deviation from tradition. After their first kiss as a married couple, the royalties greeted over 200 guests.
The guest list was packed with celebrities. Oprah, the Beckhams and the Clooneys, Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra and Abigail Spencer. The last two ladies are Meghan’s closest friends from Hollywood. Meghan Markle’s mom also attended the wedding, however, her father could not make it after an unfortunate heart attack.
