Tying the knot, Royally
« on: May 19, 2018, 06:23:11 PM »
Chris and I were up at 3:00am PT to watch the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. A wonderful spectacle. I always enjoy watching the "A-list" of celebrities arriving at the chapel. They forgot to send us an invite to the lunch or the evening party.

I thoroughly enjoyed all the coverage of the wedding.  Have to admit that I DVR'd it and began watching at 6 a.m. PT.  Stayed with it most of the day until the Preakness came on.

Had I known you wanted to go I would have sent you our invitation. We declined    ;D

Love horses!  The Preakness is the second jewel in the triple crown.  Equestrian royalty?  ;D

I heard that Elton John, an invitee, performed at lunch. Everyone remembers his 'Candle In The Wind/Goodbye England's Rose' rendition at Diana's funeral.

I did not watch the wedding. But I did see a picture of the bride, I loved the gown. I also saw a picture of the way Prince Harry looked at her when he saw her for the first time in her gown. Made my heart melt.

We are so lucky to have all the pomp and circumstance of the Royal weddings. This will probably be the last big one for a while.  Great history.  So many Brits complain about them though, drives me crazy.

I was up at 3am to watch the ceremonies. BBC started at 4am and they were married at 7am here on the east coast. I was so shocked because the sun was shining the whole time. The sun in England, who would have thunk it? ???

When I first tuned in my first thought was to wonder if they were holding an ugly hat contest. There must be a law that you must wear the ugliest hat you can find to go to a wedding in England. My vote goes to the English gentlemen in a black hat who led the Lord's Prayer.

There was a special on TV last night also, that told about their lives from basically childhood through the wedding day.  Quite interesting and it really showed the type of people they are....how much they both care about others and how they want to do whatever they can to make the world a better place with their charities and such.  It was an insight to their inner "person" and actually kind of surprising to me at least.  I think that sometimes, without knowing folks, we have a tendency to assume ....."Oh, they are a couple of very rich and spoiled kids/brats/whatever", without knowing the type of people that they really are.  After watching it, I had a new appreciation for both of them and I wish them nothing but the best in their future.

Prince Harry gained a lot of respect from me with his two combat tours in Afghanistan. The second tour was unfortunately cut short though, when an Australian magazine broke a story about his service there despite the press promising to keep his presence secret due to security concerns.

The Brits really know how to do the "Pomp & Circumstance" thing!  Very pleasant to watch from the comfort of home.  We waited for a re-broadcast, which was around 3 pm on our local cable in central Florida.

Glad to hear that. There have been several similar documentaries and movies on recently, covering Diana (Harry's deceased mother), her two sons (William and Harry), and their brides (Kate and Meghan).

I loved the fact they had invited some people from the public who had faced challenges in their lives. They certainly have some new ideas which is great. Diana was a caring lady and the public loved her.

Enjoyed the Preakness in thick fog and then fired up the TIVO to watch the Cardinals lose another game to the Phillies.  Wedding?  There was a wedding?  Guess it was on our must miss list.

After watching that special on TV last night, I get the feeling that between Harry and Meghan, we are going to see two very influential people that will do many good things tho help under privileged children, diseased children, and poverty stricken nations with millions that are suffering everyday.  It seems to be a common thread between them and let's face it, the Royal family doesn't lack for wealth or influence.
