The Royal Rundown: All about the Royal Wedding
SAY HELLO TO THE DUKE & DUCHESS OF SUSSEX!!!!!
Last Saturday, May 19th, American actress Meghan Markle married her prince charming, Prince Harry!
IT WAS EVERYTHING I WAS HOPING FOR! I have been obsessed with the royal family for years. I was sitting in front of my TV when William and Kate got married and followed them ever since. I wasn't born when Princess Diana married Prince Charles or when she tragically passed, but I always idolized her because she did so much good for the world and changed the dynamic of the royal family. I always said I would marry Prince Harry and that's obviously out the door, BUT ITS OKAY because I adore Meghan Markle and I know she is going to be such an amazing asset to the royal family. She is gracious, elegant, and such an inspiration! I just love that my two favorite things, pop culture & the royals came together and I AM HERE FOR IT!
Let's talk the about the royal wedding itself. There were so many beautiful moments so, I am going to break down my favorite things about Prince Harry and Princess Meghan's wedding:
Meghan looks like such a princess, literally! She looked absolutely beautiful and the dress was such a perfect choice for her! Meghan wore a Givenchy dress designed by Clare Waight Keller, Givenchy's first female artistic director.
I loved how the dress gave off old-hollywood vibes. It is very timeless and elegant...simply perfect! The dress is so telling of Meghan's style: poised & classic!
Meghan's powerful walk down the aisle & when Harry first saw Meghan
This moment was so historic and so beautiful! Meghan walked herself down the aisle of St. George's Chapel. It was the first time a bride has walked herself down the aisle in a British royal wedding. Prince Charles met her in the middle, but did not give her away. He stood back and allowed Meghan to approach Harry. This was such a powerful, feminist statement from Meghan and a moment that will go down in history!
The way Harry looked at Meghan made every girl around the world swoon! SO BEAUTIFUL!
Bishop Michael Curry's fiery homily
Bishop Curry brought the house down! His homily was so powerful he was pretty much almost the star of the wedding! He brought such an amazing and inspiring message of love to the wedding. He started and ended his speech with quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. I AM A FAN!
"Stand by Me"
This was such a beautiful moment at the wedding! This renditition of Ben E. King's "Stand By Me" was so perfect and made everyone so emotional! I need a studio version immediately!!!!!
The kids stealing the spotlight
These kids are just the cutest!!!!!!
Best dressed guests

Victoria and David Beckham
THAT reception dress
A POWER COUPLE. This dress is TO DIE FOR! Meghan chose another powerful, female designer, Stella McCartney to create her look for the reception. SO PERFECT!
Meghan wore Diana's famous aquamarine ring to the reception. I know Diana must be so proud of her son and she was definately there in spirit!
Let me know what are some of your favorite royal wedding moments!
