I am so incredibly happy right now! So glad to see Harry and Meghan so happy and relaxed after a tough start of the week.

Charles escorting Meghan, The Queen dogsitting, The Duke making sure he could make it to the wedding. I'm very happy to see how everyone united to support Harry and Meghan. This is what makes a family, far from perfect but united and supporting each other!

Busy day, baking and prepping for our celebratory Lunch Party, but all set [bar the Salads].

Where-ever you are and however you plan to mark the day, I hope you have a really happy and enjoyable day..

As I trust the Bridal couple, their families and friends will too !

My cousin is taking a gap year in Windsor and he was interviewed by an American news channel about the wedding. Not being particularly interested, though, he plans to move out of the town tomorrow - mostly, because, as he said "the drink will be cheaper"

My aunt is hosting a royal wedding brunch/lunch at her house so that's how I'll be spending the day. Taking some time off from my exam studies to enjoy the celebrations! I hope everyone else has fun watching.

Stand By Me by Ben E King will be sung by the gospel choir.


BTW, the source of the information was The Times front page that was tweeted on #tomorrowspapertoday. If the mods think this information should wait, please delete. I figured if they didn't take back the tweet by now, it'd be ok.

It is a nice song, although a little bit sad as it always reminds me of the Rob Reiner movie with the late River Phoenix.

Today is the day! I will patiently sit in front of tv later eating my birthday cake and cheering to both of them

not what I would have liked. Seems a little too poppish especially where there are so many wonderful gospel songs to select. But I am sure the choir will do it lovely

I like the fact that the BRF is still able to surprise us with some easter eggs like this !
Totally agree.

I did not think I would get this excited as I am actually not a fan of the concept of Royalty, though I do love the historical aspect of it, but Meghan and Harry have revived my dying interest in the BRF.
Doria has an inner dignity and even charming simplicity about her that is quite enticing. I can see why Senior was so taken with her back in the day.

It is not gospel music really, but I suppose the couple find it meaningful to them. I wonder if it is meant to be Harry addressing Meghan ( my guess), or the other way around, or both.

As I said, the only problem I have with it is that it is a rather sad song to me , not the type of joyful music you would expect from a gospel choir, but the couple obviously donít see it that way.

But when sung by that magnificent choir, it should be quite an amazing experience. And it seems to be special to them.

I'm thinking after this crazy, stressful week, that song may be even more meaningful to Harry and Meghan

Yes, I've listened to different versions of that song, and it definitely is what the singer makes it. With a choir, it'd be amazing.

I agree. But I have to admit, the lyrics are a perfect fit for this couple.

Don't forget to stretch your fingers during your morning workout - you will type a lot!

Prepare your TVs to watch a wedding, prepare your laptops to share your thoughts on the forum, prepare your phones to post your reactions to social media!

And don't forget to prepare some nice food and drinks.


My mom got cupcakes, fruit and other stuff, and weíve got our alarm set for 6 so we can watch all the pre-wedding footage (but itís still only 5:25 PM here).

I'm surprised we haven't heard if Harry will wear a wedding ring yet.

I've always liked that song. And if it means something special to the couple, which I'm sure it does, then it will be a very touching moment when sung in that chapel by a professional choir.

OMG, I just got emotional listening to that song and thinking about Harry and Meghan. I LOVE that song! (It's more soul than gospel but I'm sure the choir will put their spin on it). Ok, I think I need to go lie down! This is too much!

So nice to see happy news about the wedding - what a relief after the drama this past week.

It's lovely that Guy the beagle got his own escort.

I loved the interview with the archbishop of Canterbury and the presiding bishop of the Episcopal church (I did not know that they've known each other for a couple of years.) It's wonderful to see how happy Harry looks and he and William interacting with the public. I also loved seeing Meghan and her beautiful mom.

Looking forward to tomorrow.
