“It seems to me that this is the only way. As our eyes look to the future, as we look out across the years and across the generations, let us develop and move right here. We must discover the power of love, the power, the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that, we will be able to make this old world a new world. We will be able to make men better. Love is the only way.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
I can officially say that I have attended my first royal affair, the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! And the funny part is that I was planning on watching it on tv in the comfort of my bed, but actually attending was much better…. for the most part. Many people camped out the night prior to the wedding just to get a good spot to see the royal couple. And almost everyone else arrived hours before the event to get a semi-good spot…I was neither of those people lol. I arrived maybe an hour before the procession and was blessed with a great view. Traveling to Windsor was surprisingly super easy via the National Rail and it wasn’t too crowded. But getting home had to have been the most difficult part of the day. It involved thousands of people rushing to one of the two closest train stations, one of those stations closing completely, a super long queue for the trains, and a very uncomfortable train ride home. BUT was it worth the hassle, I would think so. I would say that I am a bit disappointed that I didn’t get to see the actual wedding on the jumbotron but I saw the couple that has had their faces plastered all over London in person, so what else can I really ask for.
Here is a video I took outside of Windsor Castle during the royal couple’s carriage procession.
