The Fairy Tale I Long For
marriage of Prince Harry
to Meghan Markle has caused a movement that we have not seen since Princess
Diana got married to Prince Charles. There is an excitement that surpasses none
other and the world will be able to be a part of the nuptials, since the happy
couple is going to make the ceremony public. Not only that, but they invited
2600 people to be on the grounds of St. Georges church to see the fairly tale
couple up close and personal.
So, why the
fascination about this
marriage that surpasses most? Why is the world anticipating this event as if it
is their own marriage, so to speak? Why has Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
captured the world at large into their every move on wedding preparations?
I think the
answer lies in our
childhood. Yes, our childhood. I would venture to guess that most, not all, but
most little girls dream of meeting their prince charming and being whisked away
on a white horse to a beautiful castle and living happily ever after. When I
was 10 years old I loved Cinderella
and I wanted to be just like her. I envisioned my Prince Charming valiantly
riding a white horse coming to whisk me away to a beautiful castle where we
would live happily ever after. Didn’t all girls want a prince charming at a
certain time in their lives? Unfortunately, reality sets in and an average of
50% of all marriages end in divorce. Therefore, the dream is over when the
marriage ends. Then we have people who are single, never married, who are also
drawn into the fairytale, hoping they will one day meet their prince charming
and live happily ever after. There are also men drawn into this fairy tale
wedding with their own ego playing the role of the Prince Harry and feeling
like the fantasy could possibly play out in their own life, if only they can
meet a beautiful princess.
I have seen
people in the media, like
Kit Hoover and Nancy O’Dell beaming whenever they would tell a sniped of the
impending nuptials. The big question in everyone’s mind is what will Meghan’s
wedding dress look like. This has been
kept more secret than pentagon files! However,
the beautiful couple has given us the details on their wedding cake, hoping
that will hold the publics curiosity until the May 19th wedding day.
Now we have this beautiful bride who is an American treading on Britain royalty
ground. I am routing for Meghan to make the grades and become a royal, although
we know deep in our hearts she will always be an American. And Meghan has been
a quick study, playing the royal game to a tee. Her beauty is captivating and
everything she wears sells out within hours. Her wool British-style coats has
become a staple of her style and elegance. Her and Duchess of Cambridge are
striking up a
great friendship and I have a feeling Kate is the one giving Meghan pointers on
her new wardrobe.
As we get
closer and closer to the
wedding date, one thing is for sure. It will be a public event that will bring
in over 1 billion dollars to the UK economy.
Although that is a great boast to the economy, the actual love story is
the thrill for me. So, has we count down the days to the royal wedding of the
year, one thing is for sure, it will definitely live up to my fairy tale dreams.
