Royal Wedding 2018

In case you’ve missed the news, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were married today at a ceremony in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, watched around the world by millions.

The bride, from now on bearer of the title Duchess of Sussex, was escorted down the aisle by the heir to the throne Prince Charles, who stepped in after her own father underwent heart surgery just two days before the wedding. The Queen, 92, and Prince Phillip, 96, were present as their grandson Prince Harry and now the Duke of Sussex, married his American bride.

Harry’s brother Prince William was best man and two of his children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were among the couple’s page boys and bridesmaids. The Duchess of Cambridge was at the ceremony, making her first public appearance since the birth of her third child, Prince Louis, less than four weeks ago.

The Most Rev Bishop Michael Curry, the first African-American presiding bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church, gave an address titled the Power of Love at the service in St George’s Chapel.

Guests included a reams of celebrities from around the world.

We wish them all the best and hope that newspapers can find something else to fill their pages with after today. It was a wedding; enough already.

I qualified as a teacher at Uni and after a brief period in the UK, moved to Spain and Italy where I taught English and helped start up the insegnanti-inglese teaching groups in Milan and Rome. I returned to the UK in 2017.

Once a Labour voter, I no longer recognise what the party has become. I didn't vote in the Brexit referendum, living abroad at the time, but would have voted leave. I've seen the difference between the way the UK treats EU nationals and how some EU states treat UK nationals.
