The Royal Wedding has come and gone but we wanted to share with you our favourite moments from the wedding of the Duke & Duchess of Sussex!
His speech was definitely a break away from tradition. The first ever African-American presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, he referenced Martin Luther King Jnr., quoted lyrics from a song once sung by slaves, in his moving speech to the crowd. He was refreshing and, honestly, really damn good to see such diversity and honesty in the Royal Wedding. He was spiritual yet real, and it was a beautiful way to start the ceremony.
As a single mother, my heart both welled and broke a little bit seeing Doria sitting by herself, watching her daughter with unwavering pride. This would of been an overwhelming experience for her and she held herself with such grace and love.
In a sweet moment, Prince Charles took Doria's hand as they went to sign the register.
We knew there would be a nod to Diana at this wedding, after all, her son was getting married! Diana's family were in attendance, wishing their nephew all the happiness on his big day. Harry's aunt, Lady Jane Fellowes, giving a reading during the ceremony too. Meghan also carried a bouquet of forget-me-not's (Diana's favourite flower) as she walked down the aisle. At the reception, Meghan had an outfit change, and with it, she donned her late mother-in-laws aquamarine ring.
After a small controversy days before the wedding, it was announced the Meghan's father, Thomas Markle Snr., would not be walking her down the aisle for the wedding. Adding to the media attention, Meghan was probably feeling a little stressed out at this point! Luckily, her new father-in-law stepped in and walked her down the chapel aisle. She did walk the distance to the chapel only accompanied by pageboys and bridesmaids, but she looked simply radiant doing so.
