I’m still basting in the happiness of the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!
Who would’ve ever thought an American, actress, divorced, feminist, biracial woman would be allowed to marry a prince? This would not have been thought of a few decades ago. Back in the day, you were to stay in your lane, people of color married same color, getting divorced was unheard of and if you were a feminist, you were probably beheaded. To be real, there are probably still some people who are not really feeling the whole diversity thing still today.
Thanks to the world’s equality of rights for the people, the dream of diverse love came true on May 19, 2018 for two people of different backgrounds. The world has changed and I think it’s for the better.
I’m an advert lover of diversity; it is what this amazing wedding offered to the world. For those who weren’t tuned in, let me give you a recap of the festivities. Nineteen year old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason the first black musician to win BBC’s Young Musician of the year, was asked to preform by the bride herself. He performed three songs and my favorite being the beautiful reedition of Ava Maria. Kingdom Choir sang the popular love ballet Stand by Me. Rose Hudson-Wilkin the first black woman who holds the title as Queen’s chaplain, addressed the crowd. Topping off the diverse day a powerful address given by Bishop Michael Curry. Bishop Curry truly represented the roots of what a gospel church means in a wonderful way.
Even the celebrity guest list was diverse. Celebrities such as Oprah, Serena Williams, David and Victoria Beckham, George and Amal Clooney all dressed to the nine to witness this joyous occasion.
As Meghan walked partially down the aisle by herself, then the rest with her now father-in-law Prince Charles, you could see the love in Harry’s eyes as he turned to look at his bride.
It certainly didn’t matter to them that they were from two different worlds; all that matters is that they found each other. Isn’t that the way love is supposed to be? Their love was so strong it managed to bring the world together to watch. As Bishop Curry stated in his address, “Two People Fell in Love and We Showed Up”.
I love weddings and this one was absolutely beautiful. Perhaps, this will cause a good chain reaction. when all people pay attention to is, the love that’s in the room. A girl can only wish. Love is still a wonderful thing. Congrats Harry and Meghan!
