The Royal Wedding Presents The Duke and Duchess of Sussex & After Wedding Portraits
Most women, ladies and young girls were looking forward to this particular wedding on a glorious Saturday morning in England. This is a true fairy tale wedding. Meghan Markle, now Prince Harry’s wife, is truly a remarkable woman in her own right. She is half black and half white and beautiful but she is more than that.
Meghan went to private Catholic schools and went on to get her college degree at Northwestern University in Chicago in 2003 in Acting and International Studies. She became an actress and has accomplished a great deal in her life. Probably, her most important role was her contribution as a volunteer throughout her high school and college days working in the kitchen to cook, clean and serve meals to the homeless.
Prince Harry was educated in the best schools and went off to Afghanistan. He was a pilot flying helicopters in the middle of war and duty during his ten years in Afghanistan. He had found his purpose, his calling, to become a part of something bigger than his own life and help others.
The couple’s church wedding was remarkable. It was a beautiful combination of royal tradition with the young choir boys singing theological classical hymns echoing through out the beautiful St. George’s Chapel and the trumpets adding the significance of another royal wedding.
There was Michael Curry who was described by the Archbishop of Canterbury as a ‘stunning preacher’ and he more than lived up to his billing with the Royal Wedding address. He talked about the power of love. Then, there was the Kingdom Choir who performed a rendition of “Stand By Me.” That was one of the most beautiful musical highlights of the morning. Megan and Prince Harry had asked a 19-year-old cellist, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, a young and gifted man to play the most beautiful classical music during their wedding.
Then there was Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. They are obviously very much in love and understand the miracle of God in their life, bringing them together to share their lives with each other. Perhaps to continue with Princess Diana’s devotion and dedication to those who are less fortunate and suffer in this world through no fault of their own.
Meghan and Prince Harry had already traveled to Africa to meet with people who are struggling and suffering. They share a deep commitment to help others in need, defining their purpose as a couple and strengthening their love as two human beings who care and will affect and change this world for the better. This is Princess Diana’s legacy and what she instilled in her son’s good fortune. She wanted for her boys to know and understand that because they were rich and were part of the royal family, it didn’t make them any better as human beings but gave them an opportunity to help those who are suffering needlessly.
Meghan’s dress was simple and elegant. Her crown was made of real diamonds that she borrowed from the Queen’s collection to wear on her special day. Her delicate veil and 15 foot train had 53 beautiful white roses representing the Queen’s commonwealth countries covering Meghans beautiful face as she walked down the aisle and met Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles to take her to his son; Prince Harry.
Another proud day for Prince Charles. Of course the bride and groom might have been a little nervous but they remained remarkably present on their special day. You could almost tell when Prince Harry was thinking of the most important woman in his live who couldn’t be present in body and mind but in soul and spirit. Meghan was particularly cognizant of her husband’s feelings and that is where her heart will fill his. That’s what happens to every married couple in this life. When the person you’ve chosen to share your life with will help complete your destiny.
No, marriage is by no means to be taken lightly. For every married couple throughout life will have experiences of elation, joy, love, happiness, laughter, disappointment, sadness and sometimes even anger and then with the peace of mind to continue on their journey together. One will inevitably be stronger than the other and that is the time when the other recognizes and remembers their commitment to each other; to rise and offer the everlasting hope, faith, strength, commitment and respect for one another.
Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
