7 Things That Made The Royal Wedding One of Its Kind
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding was a grand affair that captured our hearts and imaginations. Not only was the royal wedding one of a kind but it also had the millennials gushing throughout. The wedding did away with many royal traditions. Here are seven of the most unique moments which sets this royal wedding apart and had the world glued to their television screens.
1. A Maid Of Honour Was Not Present
Meghan Markle didn’t have a maid of honour for her wedding. All the bridesmaids and page boys were children. The godchildren of the couple also made it as bridesmaids and pageboys.
2. Opting for St. George’s Chapel
The couple chose a more intimate St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in England instead of the famed Westminster Abbey.
3. Price Harry Literally Stole Our Hearts
Prince Harry seemed to shed a tear or two during his royal wedding to Meghan Markle. He was seen wiping his face and sporting red eyes.
4. Remembering Princess Diana
The bride carried a bouquet of forget-me-nots, Princess Diana’s favourite flower which Harry himself had handpicked from the private gardens of Kensington Palace the day before the wedding.
5. The Empty Seat In Front Of The Queen
The empty seat at the front of the chapel caught the most attention. While it is said that nobody is permitted to sit in front of the Queen, many claim that the empty seat directly next to Prince William was a tribute to the late Princess Diana.
6. The African-American Experience
Michael Curry, an African-American Episcopal priest, stole the show with his sermon at the royal wedding. Michael was the unexpected star of the wedding.
7. The Wedding Cake
The couple didn’t opt for a fruitcake instead they ordered a lemon and elderflower flavoured wedding cake, iced with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.
