My blog was going through a bit of a quiet period when the Royal Wedding hit, but Meghan popping up on my newsfeed in yellow all week brought back all the feels, so I had to share!
The royal wedding was beautiful, of course, the dress, kinda meh, but in general, the whole event was just SO! I had no words. I still have no words. I love a fairytale. That might be one of my biggest flaws.
So, yes, the wedding was the stuff of dreams and it was so fun sitting around with my girlfriend and our kids watching the magic unfold. Oohing and aawwwing and laughing and wooping.
But Truth be told, I am soooooo much more in love with their love story than the actual Wedding, that was just the icing.
We are in the Loving Generation. We live in an era where people are free to love who they choose. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Look, I don’t mean to be a dick, but let’s think about this for a minute.
Meghan is black, a divorcee, over 35, from divorced parents, raised by her single black mom, divorced herself, a C list actress (really was anyone’s checking for Meghan before Harry - I actually was bc Ive been super into Suites for years, but that’s just me) her dad and extended family seemed to be kinda low classy, and she spells Meghan with an H!! An H!! Who does that? She does, you know why, because she’s a goddess.
Seriously though, Can you imagine the gymnastics act Harry had to do to get the royal family to approve?
But this is why they make me smile. Do you remember a bit over a year ago when they first announced they were dating and the palace released a statement basically saying stop being racists assholes, we love MegHan - with an H -but in their nice British Royal way? That’s when I was first obsessed with them. I actually didn’t care before then. I figure she was just another one of infamous Harry’s fun engagements. But that letter. That is the stuff that fairy tale dreams are made of. Someone going to bat for you, full speed.
A royal wedding will always be magical, because it’s dukes and princesses and queens and castles. But this one had a special layer of knight in shining armor swooping up a goddess who came along for the ride because the Prince was just too damn charming. Sigh. #Mehahnandharryforever
Meghan and Harry give me so much life!
