In a stylish and aesthetically pleasing ceremony decked with tradition and accented by the charismatic sermon of a Black Bishop and serenaded by a multi denominational Black Choir, British Prince Harry and American Meghan Markle, were wed today, at Windsor Castle, United Kingdom (UK). The new couple now officially become the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The noon ceremony at St. George's Chapel was a colorful event attended by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip, scores of other royals and celebrities, including the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Elton John, George Clooney and his wife.
While millions across the globe tuned into the ceremony via live-television, hundreds of onlookers lined the long straight entry route to Windsor Castle to glimpse upon the new couple. The Bride wore an exquisite uncomplicated stylish white gown that would still be elegant in 50-years which was complemented with a white veil and a stunning diamond tiara with a flowing white trail (train). The groom wore a dark military uniform and cap accented with red.
The Royal wedding sermon was delivered by Black Episcopal Bishop Michael Curry of Chicago, Illinois, USA, who passionately orated a theme of "love" and even quoted Dr, Martin Luther King, Jr., in the sermon before some 2,000 guests seated in St. George's Chapel. Queen Elizabeth II and the new couple were also serenaded by the Kingdom Choir, a Black British multi-denominational group from South east England who also sang for the Queen at her Jubilee celebration back in 2002.
Not only did the Royal wedding display an unprecedented fusion of British tradition and Black culture - depicting the bi-racial lineage of the new Duchess, but the ceremony also served as notice to the world that Great Britain's Royal family, has fully entered and embraced the modern era.
The best of fortune to the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
