No, I’m not British. No, the Royal Wedding doesn’t really affect me in any way whatsoever. No, I really shouldn’t care that much about it.
But!! Come on!! I care too much about it.
You almost have to pay attention to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex. They are truly a couple to care about. I know it might be ridiculous and it’s so excessive, but I just really love it.
I woke up early, like 6:45 a.m. because that’s around when the wedding started in America. I was tired and crying as soon as I turned the t.v. on. Just like seeing her car drive by as she was about to get married made me super emotional. Writing about it now, is making me teary. I decided to do a little live-tweeting for all the thousands of people interested in my life (lol jk i have like 65 followers on twitter).
And not just the fact that it was a royal wedding, and I’ve been in love with Prince Harry for years now. I mean years. But it was just so historic. Like here’s a non-royal, biracial, divorced, American woman marrying into this ridiculous, traditional royal family. It is so incredible and makes me really happy to be living in this time and to have witnessed something so magical.
I’m going to throw the rest of my tweets here. Because as you know, I’m very interesting. Especially my twitter with so many followers. Does sarcasm work well on the blog? Let me know, all my great fans that love me so much.
omg, side note, I’ll stop interrupting myself soon, but today is not that day. I wanted to give the actual article from this tweet because holy cow, it is so amazing. The Duchess of Sussex is going to change the world, I think. And my heart is just so happy for her and the world. I am so excited to see everything she’ll accomplish. Here’s the link to the article in case you want to check it out: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/18/world/europe/meghan-markle-monarchy-uk.html
It is written by Ellen Barry at the New York Times ( I felt like I should include her credits, because she’s awesome too. It’s a great article and I’m serious–please read it).
Okay, back to the tweets. (I know you were missing them).
That’s actually it. I guess I need to step up my twitter game. Until then, I also retweeted a few incredible tweets about the wedding, that I didn’t feel like I should add in this post. Maybe I should’ve? Check it out if you’re interested: @mmuhart. Anyway. About that last tweet–I will never stop posting about the royal wedding or the beautiful, brilliant couple. And that’s the main idea behind this post.
I also want to wrap this up with the idea of the modern Austen heroine. I feel like Meghan really represents this ideal. She is strong, feminist, and does not let the men in her life boss her around. She believes in the strength of women and really wants to make a difference. I mean she walked down a good amount of the aisle alone, as an independent woman. And yeah, the whole spectacle was all about her dress and the marriage, but every Jane Austen novel (essentially) ends with a wedding. It’s the happy ending everyone wishes for. This isn’t an ending though for Meghan, but rather a happy beginning to something greater. I don’t know what else to say about that, other than I cannot wait to see what happens next.
Thanks for listening to my rambling about something that may not be a super fascinating topic to everyone. It was really special and I love hearing about them constantly. If anything else exciting happens in regards to Harry and Meghan, be assured I will write about it.
