In case you didn’t notice: American actress Meghan Markle* and British Prince Harry got married yesterday. It was really hard to be missed, only if you don’t own a tv or aren’t on any social media you could not have known.
Anyways, we guess we all saw the images: of the royal wedding dress and veil, by Givenchy, the lonely mother Markle (that’s probably not her name ’cause she isn’t married anymore to Meghan’s estranged father: hope that we have that info right and he isn’t dead or someting awful like that) Camilla Parker Bowles, Ophrah and one of the Williams tennis-sisters wearing pastel pink. Posh & Beck’s in black, George and Mrs Clooney; the Mrs in a yellow dress and Queen Elizabeth in a bright lime (green) ensemble.
The pop-stars, actors and other celebs quite stole the show, more so than the aristocratic guests (With exception of Camilla Parker B. because of her hug-pink-ruffled hat.) The British Dukes and Duchesses and what have you not, looked a bit scruffy compared to the American guests, who are always dressed to be glamorous, to be noticed and who are more comfortable being in the ‘spotlights’ ’cause it’s their job.

Okay, because we’ve all seen the images described above a thousand times by now:
we were happy to see the photo reportage made outside of Windsor Castle by Immo Klink (for the New Yorker magazine.) The British commoners, and probably some uninvited nobles, all fans of the Royals, had a completely different party of their own. They seem to be sincerely happy for the newly wed couple! Make sure to watch all of these images via the New Yorker link above, they are touching.
is was an American actress best known for her role in the series ‘Suits’.
