Yes, I watched part of the royal bash at the Windsor Castle, but I have mixed feelings about the whole shebang.
It was very impressive and very romantic… and maybe a little bit over the top, especially when it came to Bishop Michael Curry’s exuberant address.
I don’t want to sound pessimistic, but any marriage (regardless of the protagonists) is always an iffy proposition. It is like a Broadway production, it could be a hit or a flop.
Of course, you wish the young couple well, but it has been estimated that between 40 and 50% of marriages end up in divorces. Regardless of who you are, your romance is never entirely foolproof.
The royals naturally live in a different world, but most of the difficulties that befall ordinary folks are also there for them. Money is probably not one of them, but infidelity could be. The biblical snake (carrying the forbidden fruit on his backpack) is always waiting in the grass.
Nobody is beyond temptation, neither a prince nor an actress.
Do you seriously expect me to be the first Prince of Wales in history not to have a mistress? Prince Charles
And for royals, there might also be the fear of being upstaged. It is difficult for a prince who has always been the center of attention, to play second fiddle to a glamorous wife. And it could be very tempting for a seasoned actress to upstage the man she nabbed. I believe that Meghan (the “older”, more experienced woman) is capable of wrapping Harry around her little finger and make him cry “uncle” anytime she wants.
Yes, I might sound a little miffed, but the invitation starting with
The Lord Chamberlain is commanded by
The Queen to invite…
never reached me. It was undoubtedly lost in the mail, but I am mad at Meghan for not sending the invitation in a more secure manner.
Let it be known
In her last text message though, the Duchess of Sussex apologized profusely and promised to play a round of pétanque with us whenever she can shake off Harry.
