In England, it is called an Address while in the US it is called a Sermon. That is why for non Americans, it was a bit much. But for us Americans, it was short.

And not long by US standards. At least there was some harmless humor.

I liked it was even surprised by it! Fire up.
The topic was fine, even if simple and repetitive, but all the yelling in the church isn't really my thing.

I think I had similar feelings about it as the BRF

It’s not like they are making out ang groping each other. It’s just holding hands.

We know have Schubert’s Ave Maria. What a confusing selection of music. It seems to be all over the place.

He is brilliant. I can see why he was asked to play. And the pieces chosen are wonderful.

Yes, compared to a full Catholic mass, definitely a short affair.

Last wedding I attended was a mix. The bride was protestant and her groom was Philipino catholic. It was led by a protestant minister, but they included a lot of his culture and traditions, as well as some prayers. It was even longer then a full catholic mass wedding. I was regretting someone had convinced me to wear heels as maid of honor. The bridal party had to stand through the entire wedding unlike the guests. Hour and a half in 3 inch heels for someone who lives in scrubs and runners......Ditched the heels right after, heck half the photos, I was shoeless.

I loved seeing the RF react to a pretty tame American-style sermon.

Be happy no one fell out and started speaking in tongues, Royal Family!
