Last weekend the topic of conversation was either The Royal Wedding or the FA Cup Final. Dubbed the wedding of the year, 18 million Brits tuned in, whilst a staggering 29.2 million in the US were up early to watch the unmissable event.
Although television viewing figures were below the wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge there was lots of hype surrounding the wedding on social media, television and on the streets of London. The wedding took place in St Georges Chapel at Windsor Castle, where 600 guests attended. The guest list was comprised with members of the Royal Family and a host of celebrity A-listers including, George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, David and Victoria Beckham along with Megan’s previous cast members from ‘Suits’.
There were a number of unforgettable moments throughout the wedding, including the all-important dress, custom made by Givenchy, the wedding sermon delivered by Bishop Curry and the gospel choir singing their rendition of American composers Ben E King’s ‘Stand By Me’. Of course there are many more special moments to remember but most importantly the wedding provided a blend of traditional English heritage with American cultures to welcome Megan Markel into our Royal Family.
Congratulations to the newly appointed Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Whilst Markel used to be an actress and celebrity, this was not a celebrity marriage but a royal marriage. Although prenuptial agreements are commonplace in celebrity marriages to protect both parties’ fortunes, they are not done within The Royal Family. Despite Megan’s previous divorce and the number of divorces that have occurred in The Royal Family, Prince Harry declined the signing of any prenuptial agreements.
