The deed is done! Meet the royals. The royal wedding was absolutely stunning. Some of the things that took place we were already expecting. Prince Harry kept his facial hair, leaving him as dapper as we want him to be. His black uniform impeccable.
Megan looked absolutely stunning in her Givenchy gown–boatneck, perfectly fitted to her shape, modest for the royal occasion, complete with a cathedral length fitting for a royal duchess.
Meghan wore Cartier accessories. The brand that has great symbolism to royalty and a long history of creating some of the most amazing accessories.
Meghan Markle tiara was made in 1932. The center element is a detachable brooch made in 1893 that was given to Queen Mary by the County of Lincoln on her wedding to King George V.
And a kiss is not just a kiss when it is coming from a royal.
This is no ordinary love. And we knew this from the moment it went public from the engagement. Prince Harry & Meghan Markle made history. They sent out a strong message to all that love has no boundaries nor can it be contained by class, race, or dated set of rules.
Prince Charles walked Meghan down the aisle which was filled with so much meaning. From my perspective, it was a seal of approval. While we would love for her dad to walk her down the aisle, we know there were some challenges that the family was facing that made this just perfect. I hope this creates a wonderful bond between the famillies–Meghan, her mom Doria Ragaland. The symbolism goes beyond just entering into the royal family, but then what a privilege it is for any man, father to walk a woman on her wedding day.
The wedding was a perfect blending of both cultures with a strong presence of the African-American culture’s rich music history with the choice of songs and performances. No grey area there.
Congrats Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle–we wish you love and a successful marriage.
