Saturday …what a positive and happy day for the world with this wedding of Harry and our gal Meghan. I just can’t help chatting more about about it. I don’t want it to all be over!
What did you think of the dress made by an English designer Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy?I though it was so Givenchy – very Audrey Hepburn looking and very Meghan’s style as well. The simplicity really showed off her elegant shape and the beautiful veil was romantic and lovely. The veil was embroidered with the flowers of the Commonwealth countries and even California Poppies, as a nod to Meghan’s home.
Wowsers. No doubt they are in love! So fun to be a part of the happiness that Harry has finally found after everything with his mom and some depression he has battled.
The Queen Mary tiara Meghan chose was also modern as tiaras go and it seemed to match the style of dress well. Oh to be there and see all the tiaras that were in the running from the royal collection! I personally love Diana’s Spencer family tiara, but it would have been too fussy. This was just right. All the lines were kept simple and even her makeup looked natural and lovely.
Meghan is 36 and knows her own style and it shows. She’s true to what she likes and isn’t afraid to do as she pleases. This is so different from Diana who was 36 when she died, (shocking to me they are the same ages), and 19 when she wed. It took Diana a long time to get to that more assertive age and she was just coming into her own when she died I think.
The venue of St George’s was absolutely gorgeous! The floral arches at the entrance and inside the church were beautiful. I loved Meghan’s small bouquet of Harry’s mother’s favorite flower- Forget Me Nots. I also just read that Harry wanted a seat left empty next to William for his mother Diana. That choked me up. I felt very emotional during many moments. Harry is such a sweet, sensitive man who I think we all are rooting for.
They think at least 100,00 people came to be a part of this special day in Windsor.
Meghan’s mom Doria Ragland in what the NYTimes called a pea shoot green suit from Oscar de la Renta. She was perfect and modern and one couldn’t help, but feel for her sitting all alone so far from home. I see why everyone loves her. Just watching her during the service she exuded a calm and grace, though blinked back tears during many parts. I loved her natural braids and even her nose ring. She is real and relatable this yoga teacher and charity worker.
The delight on the face of the little pageboy holding Meghan’s train as he heard the trumpets ring walking into the church was one especially memorable part.
The kids were too cute!
