Ahhhh what did we all think to the Royal Wedding? Too much or was it just right? Well I'm going to talk about as the rest of the world is and why not it was a lovely day.
The weather was perfect, the setting of Windsor Castle was just excellent and it all went to plan. Even the little bridesmaids and page boys were on their best behaviour although I think they may have been treated to a Disney film as an alternative to sitting through Bishop Michael Curry's sermon. He got people talking didn't he? He also got people giggling and I had to laugh at some of the facial expressions going around the chapel.
For those that don't know Michael Curry is quite an amazing man, he is an ambassador for equal rights and a champion for inclusivity of the LGBTQ community within the Christian church. Before you do criticise him for how 'he went on' a bit well just have a read up on him first. I am not a religious person myself so some parts of any religious services tend to pass me by a little but I loved his passion and his speech. I think it will be remembered for a long time....maybe not in it's entirety by some but for others he will be an inspiration.
The bride looked beautiful in a simple but elegant gown with a huge train, bet she didn't boogie the night away in that. I honesty thought the pageboys would go for a ride on it at some point. Harry and William looked very smart and their mum would have been very proud of them. I did love how Charles met Meghan half way and walked her for the rest of the way to the altar and to her husband to be. He did chat to her all the way and I did admire him for giving Meghan's mum some attention too.
The celebrities were out in full force. The Cluney's, Mr and Mrs James Corden, The Beckham's, lots of sporting personalities as well as more from stage and screen. I always like to see Eugenie and Beatrice but wish Andrew and Sarah could just sit together, they are still friends so why not.....pobably not Royal protocol. I felt so sorry for Meghan's mum being on her own and the only family member there from her side of the family but she seemed to be looked after quite well.
The gospel choir were my favourite part of the service. I love a choir as you well know but this one, wow they were just great and a superb song choice of Stand By Me. I did enter into it all, I sang the hymns and said the Lord's Prayer....I did well for a non believer I just enjoy a get together.
A very successful day and surely you cannot knock a bit of happiness for Harry, his girl and for the lift it gives the country. I'm not a huge royalist, I do like these boys as they have a lot of their mother in them and I was a Diana fan so I felt happy and glad to have joined in with their day. You can criticise it all you like but we need a bit of a happy event now and again......and us brits do it so well.
Well done to both BBC and ITV for the fantastic coverage. It is the telly moment of this week so I am dedicating my Pass the Remote this week to the happy couple.
