The UK Royal Wedding and How to Watch It

May 8, 2018

Another UK Royal Wedding is here! In what seems like just yesterday (but is actually 7 years ago), the world watched as Prince William and Kate Middleton became man and wife – it was a grand event that gathered a lot of crowds, covered by several channels and stations. Yet, here we are again once again anticipating another UK Royal Wedding.

Who is our Royal Dashing Groom, Prince Harry?

I’d hope that we all know who this ginger prince is, but for the benefit of those who do not, I’ll share a little bit of information.

Prince Harry, 33, is first of all, well, a prince – a member of the British Royal family. He is the last-born child of Prince Charles & Princess Diana, and the sixth in line to the throne.

Apart from that, we know Prince Harry to be quite different from the rest of the royal fam – indulging openly in activities such as partying. Safe to say, we like Prince Harry, and many of us (minus me, my friends had the obsession) have imagined being the girl to snatch his heart. Too late now – but who is the special lady?

The Blushing Bride, Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle, 36, is an actress and our blushing bride! She’s appeared in acclaimed television series Suits, as well as other productions such as Horrible Bosses, Dater’s Handbook, Remember Me, When Sparks Fly, and others.

As she is an actress, could one say the love for Prince Harry is all an act? Well, Meghan and Harry met through mutual friends in 2016, and he apparently popped the big question as they were cooking roast chicken one night – traditional love story, with a royal title attached to it. Gosh! It sounds kind of fairytale like.

Tea: It’s not Meghan’s first marriage. Her ex husband, Trevor Engleson, is rumoured to be producing a  TV show centred around a man in a custody battle with his ex wife who marries into the royal family – opportunist much? Move on joor!
