The article spoke about the rings of the royal ladies. Will Prince Harry's ring be made from the Welsh gold?

The choice of a gospel choir is most likely to reflect Meghan's African American heritage.

And of course it was Meghan who snubbed her. Because we all know she is the one in absolute control of the wedding

I doubt Harry didn't have a say in the music. And likely Charles did as well. He played a major part in helping select the music for William and Kate's. If it was a big deal to have the woman involved, she would have been.

DM once again simply stirring up the muck.

Well I hope these grown adults finally learn how to deal with not rejection but with other grown adults having their own divergent thoughts and ideas about how THEIR wedding should go. Perhaps this adult will have another wedding or maybe not, but they will survive.

I look forward to hearing a wide variety of musical styles that FULLY reflect both the bride and the groom.

Snub away meghan snub AWAY!!

I'm liking this so called evil Meghan LOL!

Here is a little more on the history of the use of Welsh gold wedding rings in the BRF if anyone is interested:

We don’t know since they’ve not worn what we traditionally see in the US previously. But if he’s going to wear one, I suspect that it’s going to be how men wear their rings in US rather than his father wearing it on his pinkie. So if that’s the case, it could also be from Welsh gold. But we don’t know since there isn’t much consistency on this from royal men.

Either:
Charlotte and George- 3 and 5
Ivy and Japer- 5 and 6
Remi Lit and Brian Mulroney- 6 and 8
Rylan Lit and John Mulroney- 8

Or they find someone more age appropriate like Charlie Meade. Not sure how old Charlie is, but he looks around Mia's age. Charlie's dad and Uncle are both friends of Harry and William, as well as Zara.

Charlotte and Charlie: 3/4
Ivy and George: 5
Remi and Jasper: 6
Rylan and Mulroney boy: 8

The second option would likely work much better appearance wise.

But I still have a feeling we will see 4 bridesmaids, 2 page boys. With Ivy, Remy, Rylan and Charlotte for girls, and Jasper and George for boys.


Yes, and I think there's a Van Cutsem boy around that age who might be included.

But you are probably right about only two page boys. Too bad, because the pairs look so nice.

Harry has six godchildren? I heard only about two:
  • Frederick "Fred" Pettifer (born 2001)
  • Jasper George Galloway Dyer (born 2012)

Mike Tindall has some lovely words about the wedding and couple.

https://www.express.co.uk/news/royal...-royal-wedding

Tindall said of Meghan: “She is lovely. They are obviously besotted with each other and that’s all you can ask for.
“There is a huge wave of support from people wanting them to be happy and successful.
“Zara and I can only echo that. The cousins are very close.”

That was super interesting, thanks Missy! One of the things I truly love about the BRF is their deep connection to their history and to sentimental tradition (things passed down). It's like the family partakes in small gestures like the rings where you're bonded by being part of the group that gets them.

That makes it sound cliquish, but that's not really want I'm trying to say... it's sort of like the beautiful sentiment where a wedding gown is passed down from mother to daughter to granddaughter (but in the case of the rings, it's more practical because each woman can get the ring made to her tastes).

The fact that the Queen Mother, Queen and Diana all had rings made from the same nugget of gold is so special.

I'd love to have a tradition like that in my family.

From Omid Scobie


https://twitter.com/scobie/status/995286744458252288


Harry and Meghan have asked that The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, give the address at their wedding
@BishopCurry, from Chicago, will fly in to join The Dean of Windsor, who will conduct the Service, and Archbishop of Canterbury @JustinWelby, who will officiate



Says @BishopCurry: "The love that has brought and will bind Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle together has its source and origin in God, and is the key to life and happiness. And so we celebrate and pray for them today."

Yes they are lovely and warm words from someone who knows what it is like to be in the spotlight because he married into the BRF. I believe that the Windsors have reflected upon the past and have made great strides in welcoming their newest members with great support.

I can't believe I found this information first!!!!!

Great find Terri Terri I too am of the opinion that Harry is the type to wear his wedding ring. He seems so besotted and clearly a heart-on-the-sleeve type of guy.

An interesting thought from reading that page:

Quote:
The wedding rings of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, The Queen, Princess Margaret, Princess Anne, and Diana, Princess of Wales were all made from the same nugget of Welsh gold, which came from a Welsh mine, Clogau St David's at Bontddu.
Since no more of the original nugget is left I think it would be a beautiful gesture if Diana's wedding band was given to Meghan. It would balance Kate getting the engagement ring with the other daughter-in-law getting Diana's other marital-related jewellery. PLUS since there's no more of the original nugget left it would be really special. Even if Diana's ring were to be melted and reforged for Meghan...the significance and sweetness of that gesture would be so great.

Why not? It might have been Diana's wedding ring, but it's just a ring, it's a pity to let that nugget go to waste. And bad karma? So far, I don't see any of it on William and Catherine's marriage due to the engagement ring. They are just rings that belonged to Diana and are precious to both William and Harry, so I would say good karma instead of bad karma, though I don't believe in superstition.

What happened to Diana's wedding ring anyway? Was it returned to Charles along with her other personal jewellery after her death?
